We are back! As of right now we’ve had over 6600 show-downloads on this site. Wow! Thank you guys for following and sharing! For this year’s first post I wanted to design something just over the top. This rig is just packed with different types of beams and effects, designed with a EDM-scenario in mind. Since the rig is a bit ‘repetitive’ it very easy to program and create some really distinct looks. The rig is based around six ‘columns’ that extends out trough six ‘branches’. There are ClayPaky Mythos at the base of the columns, on top of them and at the end of the branches. Keep in mind that the fixture-personality for this fixture may not correspond exactly with the real fixture (gobos et.c.).
Something you do not see in the images is the lowres LED-screen which goes between the columns and the fixtures hung from them. To extend the screen I also added the ChromaQ ColorBlocks to the columns and to six trusses on the side of the stage. These things look great live, you won’t really get the effect in MA3D though… When pixelmapped together with the screen you can get some really immersive looks if your lucky!
While the Mythos-fixtures work great as a profile-fixture and do one of the punchiest beams on the market, it still needs a bit of backup on both fronts. To do this I choose Vipers as my primary profile-fixture for obvious reasons, and the Martin Rush MH4 Beam as my beam-fixture. The MH4 performs great, and only falls short when it comes to gobos and colors.
While on the topic of Rush-fixtures there are some Rush Par2 Zoom-fixtures in there too as truss warmers and sidelights. Really like this fixture! Great wash, smooth color mixing, and can zoom in really tight. Also the lens is the same as the Aura, which makes it fit in with the rest of the washes.
