UK lighting and visuals rental company HSL are supplying lighting equipment, a 26-axes Kinesys automation system, all associated trussing and rigging plus crew to Snow Patrol as they embark on the first UK leg of their 2011 ?Fallen Empires? world tour.
Lighting designer is Davy Sherwin, who has worked closely with Catalyst and live visuals programmer / visuals operator Robin Haddow and video director Blue Leach. The trio are collectively known as ?The Art Department? on the tour, and the stunning and beautifully fluid, intelligently harmonised show is the result of some serious triumvirate creative chemistry.
HSL?s project manager is Mike Oates. He says, ?We love working with Davy and Robin and have seen the band?s show and their designs take a real journey and evolution over the last few years. Each tour is always fresh in ideas and this is among the best yet?.
