Avolites down under the Hilltop Hoods

Published: ASIA

AUSTRALIA: When Hilltop Hoods recently took to the road for their Restrung Tour, lighting designer Paul Owen was called upon to light up the performances. Mr Owen had previously worked with Hilltop Hoods in 2007 and was requested based on his hip-hop lighting background in providing designs for the likes of Wu-Tang Clan, De La Soul and Grandmaster Flash. The lighting design for the Restrung Tour called upon an Avolites Sapphire Touch lighting console running Titan v9, as Mr Owen has enjoyed previous success with the manufacturer’s products. Dave Taylor at TLC Global Lighting supplied the equipment.

‘I've been using Avolites products for a good 15 years or so now as they suit my style,’ explained Mr Owen. ‘For a massive and complex live show like Restrung, they made my life so much easier - thanks to their rock solid effects engines, pixel mappers, handy windows with different layouts and 30 pre-set faders.’

The lighting designer also employed the manufacturer’s Tiger Touch II with the Tiger Touch Fader Wing to run alongside the Sapphire Touch. This combination allowed remote DMX processing, more universes and no latency at the larger venues, and was connected via a Titan Net Processor.

‘This third generation console is packed with enough power for complex shows, yet it is small and light enough to fit in a standard plane luggage hold,’ noted Mr Owen. ‘Not only that, the Fader Wing gives me 30 additional faders for instant access to all playbacks, fixtures and palettes. In addition, programmable macro buttons and local, independent paging control means that lighting huge events like this becomes intuitive.’

The Restrung Tour made stops in all five major Australian cities with all dates featuring a live performance of the hip-hop trio’s second orchestral album. The Sydney, Queensland, Adelaide, Melbourne and West Australian orchestras all accompanied Hilltop Hoods onstage during different legs of the tour.
