Innova-Son On Tour With Georgian Legend

(July 13, 2001)
Two Innova-Son Sensory consoles sat at FOH for the premier of "Georgian Legend" in Paris at the Palais des Sports this past June, providing stellar sound for the equally stellar performance of former Soviet-block Georgia's national dancing and singing troupe "Erisioni" and the Georgian National Ensemble. Through "Georgian Legend", Erisioni's artists tell the tales of their Eastern European ancestors with an imaginative tour through the ancient kingdom of Colchide and songs and dances that date back 1000 years. The troupe is backed up by the critically acclaimed orchestral accompaniment of the Georgian National Ensemble, which recently finished a tour in the USA entitled "The Legend of Tamar".

The U.S. tour, a "Georgian Legends" CD, and the present live performance are all the brainchild of "Renaissance man" Pascal Jourdan. For the "Georgian Legend" tour, he is wearing two hats: creative director and FOH engineer. Belgium's leading audio equipment supplier, Philing Live, is providing one of the two Innova-Son Sensory consoles for the production, a host of other equipment, and the know-how of their chief of sound operations, David Huyvaert.

The production is particularly involved. Jourdan and Huyvaert must balance 24 wireless Sennheiser microphones affixed to a veritable sea of moving performers in addition to a host of wired microphones on additional singers and the orchestra itself. A Sensory Essential Live premixes the 24 RF microphones into a Sensory Stage Box. Then this one feeds, with all other microphone inputs, a Sensory Grand Live at FOH via lightweight coaxial cable.

Without the comprehensive routing and processing capabilities of the Innova-Son consoles, obtaining the tight, beautiful sound that marks the production would have been impossible. Further, its ease of setup, light weight, total instant recall, and small footprint ensure that each installation runs smoothly and predictably. The Innova-Son equipment is backed by a respectable list of equipment, including a Midas XL3 on monitors, a 2x10 V-DOSC from L-Acoustics, and a wealth of Meyer self-powered loudspeakers.
