Our audio design used the house Meyer MICA loudspeaker system for primary coverage of the audience area with a supplementary ground stacked system to provide localization for the project content and for the concert events that occurred throughout the sporting program.

SOCHI 2014 OLYMPIC WINTER GAMES

Sound design and operation for the opening and closing ceremonies

The Ceremony, created by Danny Boyle, featured Kenneth Brenner, Emeli Sande, The Arctic Monkeys and Sir Paul McCartney.

The London 2012 Olympic Closing Ceremony was the most challenging ceremony we have delivered. Closing Ceremonies are rarely rehearsed in the stadium and the entire production is built overnight prior to the event, this coupled with the inclusion of some of the worlds biggest acts such as The Who, Queen, Muse, George Michael, The Spice Girls, The Pet Shop Boys, One Direction, Elbow and Jesse J, made for a perfect storm of complication and competing priorities.

LONDON 2012 PARALYMPIC GAMES

Audio systems designer for opening and closing ceremonies

Unique to the Paralympic Opening and Closing Ceremonies, the 8,000 athletes were seated on the field of play surrounding a reduced performance area. The Opening Ceremony, which featured highly detailed orchestral music, required an additional 90 small format loudspeakers to be distributed throughout the athletes.

The final instalment of London 2012 Ceremonies was directed by Kim Gavin and featured Coldplay for the majority of the show.

2008 CATHOLIC WORLD YOUTH DAY

Sound design, and management and delivery of all technical systems in all venues

World Youth Day, held every 3 to 4 years, is the largest youth-oriented Catholic festival.

ST KILDA FESTIVAL

Audio systems design and noise management planning

St Kilda Festival is one of Australia’s best known, and Melbourne’s most loved events, showcasing the cream of Australia’s musical talent. Auditoria was engaged by the City of Port Phillip Council and St Kilda Festival as acoustical and audio consultants. We developed and designed sound systems that are integrated with our noise management plan. This has allowed for the best balance and experience for the festival goer whilst minimising the impact on the local residents.

CHINESE NEW YEARTWILIGHT PARADE IN SYDNEY

Audio systems design and management

Auditoria was engaged by the City of Sydney to dramatically improve the audience experience of the Twilight Parade in Sydney’s CBD. The event attracts an audience of approximately 100,000 who line the city streets to catch a glimpse of the parade as it rolls by. Audio for the parade was historically not a high priority until the attendances grew and the organisers could justify the costs. Our design consisted of a combination of fixed loudspeaker systems for the VIP audience areas and vehicle-mounted systems for the parade floats.

VARIOUS SPECTACULARS AND VARIETY SHOWS

Sound design and management

The NSW Schools Spectacular is an annual event to showcase the artistic talents of NSW public school students. We were engaged in 2007 to reinvent the show from a sound perspective to deliver a more consistent and high quality audience experience and 10 years on, our design remains vastly unchanged. 

Creative Generation is a similar event showcasing the talents of Queensland public school students.
