Manchester Art Gallery Lighting Hire  

At this event Blacka Acoustics provided a turn-key solution for the students at Hulme Hall, Manchester. The students wanted an out and out rave, split into three sections; The Main Gallery, (1 & 2) The Cafe‘ area and the Atrium. We started with lighting the Entrance hall, using Parcan lighting with various coloured gels to wash the walls and ceiling, also illuminating the stairs leading up to the main gallery. In the gallery itself we used a number of LED lighting and pin spots, bringing the pictures and objects to life with a glorious up-wash effect, this worked tremendously in the open large spaces we took advantage of. In the Atrium a slightly different approach was taken, because a majority of surfaces are made of frosted glass we decided to illuminate the room from behind each glass panel, this enabled us to wash the room completely with a mass of colours working perfectly together. The colours were coordinated and altered by a professional DMX controller, giving us absolute ability to construct our customers desires. The cafe‘ area was transformed into a full scale club with a combination of moving head lighting, strobes and lasers. In order to provide this solution we had to fix a complete truss structure for the overhead lighting to hang off, this gave off an amazing aura and feel to Manchester Art Gallery and the students were more than impressed.

Our sound solution was simple, 10Kw of Blacka Acoustics power consisting of; 4 Blacka BS15 subwoofers, 4 Blacka TFR 1502L and 2 Blacka FRW 1201 stage monitors for the DJ. Our DJ setup was professional as ever, using 2 Pioneer CDJ-1000 mk3, 2 Technics SL1210’s and an Allen and Heath Xone:62 as the mixer, over the DJ booth we provided a 3 metre Tripod stand where further lights were hung and utilized. In total we had 24 parcans for uplighting, 8 intelligent moving head lights as well as a variety of LED batons. The amplifiers used to power our sound setup were, 2 Crown VZ5002 and one Crown XTi 2000 with a DBX Driverack 480 as a controller, crossover and processor.
