Artes facilitates Vera Brezhneva at Burj Al Arab

UAE: Russian artist Vera Brezhneva recently performed in the ballroom of the Burj Al Arab over two consecutive nights. Artes Middle East delivered the full A/V setup, including an audio solution built on the foundation of a Meyer Sound system for the main PA.

‘We work with an event company called M Premier, which does all the major Russian events in Burj Al Arab, Madinat Jumierah and other major 5-star resorts in Dubai,’ explained Karl da Costa, technical manager at Artes Middle East. ‘We have been doing all their events for the past six years and we’ve learnt to work around the difficulties faced in the Burj Al Arab ballroom in terms of space constraints, elevator excess and the prevalent 7-star VIP protocol.’

The main PA was formed from two ground stacks of five Meyer Sound M'elodie curvilinear array loudspeakers, complemented by a pair 700-HP subwoofers. ‘Front-fills were also M’elodie and the system was driven via a Galileo 616 processor,’ noted Mr da Costa. ‘The main console was a Yamaha CL5 which was taking care of monitors as well. Monitors were Meyer Sound MJF-212.’

Also deployed on the audio side was a Klark Teknik 31-band equaliser, four Sennheiser ew 300 IEM G3 full in-ear monitoring systems and a pair of Rio boxes. Shure UR2 wireless microphones were employed for capture, along with UR4D receivers and a UR1 beltpack. Artes Middle East also supplied the Pearl Masters Series drum kit and equipment for percussions, bass, guitars and keyboards.

As for lighting, a range of Claypaky Sharpys and Mythos were deployed with Martin Professional Mac 301 LED washes, ETC Source Fours and LED PAR cans. Also implemented on the lighting rig were Atomic strobes, a haze machine, a 63A power distribution box, an Avolites Titan lighting console and dimmers. Video called on a 9 sq-m 6mm LED screen with processor, switcher, monitor and laptops.

‘The client as well as the artist were very happy with the end result,’ concluded Mr da Costa. ‘The event was very well received over the two days that it took place.’
