San Fernando – In his wildest dreams, singer-songwriter David Vidano allegedly imagined the release date of his debut album Slo-Mo as something different. However, on the release date itself, the world was in the midst of a pandemic that did not treat young artists in a particularly benevolent manner.
As for the tour? Unfortunately, this had to be postponed until the fall of 2021, but the release of the album is an event that must be celebrated, and therefore Vidano gave a small concert, respecting the strictest health rules, in the hall of repeat of TTL Event Solutions GmbH in his hometown. Ochtrup, Germany. The event was also recorded.
Vidano’s lighting designer Jens HillenkÃ¶tter works worldwide as a designer and creative producer. For the release of the artist, he also took on the role of DoP and for the first time deployed the GLP Creative Light 1 Plus which he was eager to use. Some 40 pieces of compact and flexible LED luminaires completed the artist’s decor. âThese were still field test devices because the Creative Light1 Plus were not yet available,â he said. âI recognized the creative potential of Creative Light1 when I first saw the prototypes at GLP’s headquarters in Karlsbad. I ordered immediately and am glad I was able to use them. “
For Vidano’s album release concert, the task was initially to create a lighting design in the form of a floor ensemble, which on the one hand would be individual and on the other hand logistically as compact as possible. and easy and quick to use. The scenography also had to be quickly adaptable to different sets. “We agreed very early on that due to Covid-19, the tours would have to adjust at short notice as budgets would be reduced and we would have to mainly use the existing lighting technology of the theaters,” explained the designer.
The GLP Creative Light1 Plus fits perfectly into the concept. They were used in a matrix formation which replaced an LED wall and was mapped to individual pixels from the lighting desk. âI especially like that the Creative Light1 Plus is extremely compact and runs on batteries,â HillenkÃ¶tter said. âSince they can also be controlled wirelessly via LumenRadio CRMX, they can be adapted to existing stage setups. This means that I can adapt to changing requirements in a very flexible way. In addition, the devices save a lot of space in the charging cases due to their very small size. “
GLP Creative Light1 is a battery-powered wireless visual effect designed for the entertainment market. Each device has 24 individually controllable RGB pixels. With the help of the built-in dual-layer effects engine, breathtaking lighting effects can be created. LED disc type fixtures are great for creating creative visual reflections, lighting up walls or as a play element in dark areas. Creative Light1 is the perfect solution wherever spectacular visual effects are required, inexpensively and with little space. The new Creative Light1 from GLP is available in two versions: Creative Light1 can be controlled via an IR remote control and offers functions such as color selection, color samples, sound to light, etc. GLP Creative Light1 Plus also has a built-in LumenRadio CRMX module for wireless DMX control. Both models can also be controlled via an app.
Since HillenkÃ¶tter bought the Creative Light1 Plus from GLP, he will use this smart and very creative LED solution again in the future. âI ordered the first units immediately because I could see so many possible uses,â he said. âIt ranges from an effective stage experience at live concerts to a feast for the eyes at corporate events.â
