Masque Sound Supplies Custom Audio Equipment for Act One

E-mail Print PDF

NEW YORK – Masque Sound supplied a custom audio equipment package for Lincoln Center Theater’s newest production, Act One. An adaptation of Moss Hart’s classic autobiography, the play chronicles the legendary playwright and theater director’s struggle to escape poverty and forge a career in theater. Sound Designer Dan Moses Schreier’s biggest challenge in designing the sound was dealing with the acoustics of the theater itself.  “The Vivian Beaumont Theater is notorious for requiring special acoustic systems, since there is no natural reverb in the room,” says Schreier. “When the theater was constructed it was built with traps all the way around the back wall of the auditorium, which gives the effect of an acoustically dead space. Technologies have evolved so much since the theater opened in 1965, however, that it is now possible to make the room feel alive.”

E-mail Print PDF

Allen & Heath’s GLD digital mixing system, ME-1 personal monitor mixer and Qu-16 compact digital mixer were recently installed in a new building at Ulsan Galilee Church in South Korea. Director Joon-ho Choi of Daiyoung Sound selected the system due to its capability and flexibility to manage small or large events. “The combined GLD and ME was the most attractive option. The GLD’s I/O remote audio racks mean the system is scalable to manage all requirements. The mixer also has great audio quality, an intuitive interface, and a wonderful custom layout design. ME-1 has the most monitor channels in the personal monitors market, and the group option, ambient mic, dedicated monitor output port, which means an option card is not needed, are the reasons why I chose the system for the church, whilst also saving budget!” comments Mr. Choi.
