Normally when a promoter approaches us with a unique venueâ¦itâs really not that unique. Weâve been around the block once or twice, meaning we provide production services for festivals in the most remote places on earth â deep in the woods, the playa desert, and of course the Rocky Mountains in winter. Donât get us wrong, weâre not trying to brag, weâve been incredibly lucky to have shared these moments with some amazing promoters and attendees over the years. But when Connected Entertainment, Aqua Audio and Monster Energy came to us with Soundwave, we felt the rush of a challenge coming on.
Other production companies have installed systems for shows like this in the past, so it's been done. We knew producing a show in the pool was entirely possible, but is it possible to produce a âPK styleâ show in a wave pool? Weâre up against a few challenges:
- Proximity to crowd;
- Natural reverb and reflective surfaces;
- Limited power;
- Limited set up time;
- Proper coverage;
- We can not interrupt regular pool operation
BUT, this is the kind of thing our techs get off on, especially when itâs in our own backyard. Iâm sure every crew member here has wanted to drop a huge system in the pool at some pointâ¦now thanks to Monster, Aqua and Connected, we can! Weâre making a mass exodus to Edmonton on January 5th, in order to bring the best we have. See you on the dance floor...er, pool.
