Chauvet & Trusst Provide Visuals for Paul van Dyk
Paul van Dyk performed for a Godskitchen event at the HMV Institute in Birmingham earlier this year with truss and effects provided by CHAUVET. Managing Director of Birmingham-based DMX Productions SJ Grevett used CHAUVET lights and various pieces of TRUSST in creative combinations to build the ‘PVD’ logo on a grand scale for the stage set.
To build the V-shaped structure at the centre of the stage, SJ used four one-metre TRUSST® sticks, two three-metre TRUSST® sticks for the cross section, a single scaffolding bar, one TRUSST® book corner and single poles. “TRUSST® is very solid, I find it very handy and easy to assemble, and offers great flexibility in the many ways you can combine it,” SJ said.
Four 2-metre TRUSST® sticks were flown above the audience in the mid-section of the venue and each carried three CHAUVET® Professional Legend™ 412 pixel-mapping moving yokes to produce captivating mid-air effects. “I love the pixel mapping function the Legend™ 412 offers,” SJ said. “I use them at various events because they are bright and deliver a huge impact with a tiny footprint.”
SJ placed 12 CHAUVET® DJ COLORband™ PiX linear lights on the DJ booth, which can be used for video and animation effects when multiple units are used together. COLORband™ PiX also features individual control over 12 flicker-free tri-coloured LEDs, which allows for custom looks. “COLORband™ PiX is a phenomenal fixture,” SJ said. “It’s incredibly bright, I enjoy pixel-mapping it, and it brings a lot of value to the show each time.”
