It was a benchmark year for PK Sound, boasting over 130 high profile events for Trinity's launch season. What better way to celebrate than New Year’s Eve with USC Resolution and Insomniac’s Countdown!
USC Resolution packed Seattle’s WAMU Theatre with fans eager to "ring in the new" with a spectacular line-up of performers. “The contrast between the artists was exciting,” says FOH engineer Austin Perkins. “DJ Craze used vinyl, and jumps quickly from one track to another. Liquid Stranger’s production has a lot of depth to it, and was extremely immersive thanks to Trinity’s powerful low-mid and crisp high frequency. Aaron Silverstein, marketing coordinator, notes that “We had everything from big progressive beats like Eric Prdydz and Benny Benassi; feel-good music like Seven Lions; and your dirty bass music such as Snails, Liquid Stranger and Slander.”
Perkins feels it’s the way the speaker system engages crowds more than any other factor. “People are always astounded how immersive and powerful PK’s speakers really are. Every time the bass hits, you get sucked into a wave of music; and now with Trinity, every vocal line sounds like it’s being sung directly to you. Everyone we spoke to the whole night was having a blast being swept up in the music.”
That same vibe was being created at Insomniac’s Countdown at the Nos Events Center in southern California. The success of the event served as a kick-off to what has been described as Insomniac’s “massive multi-genre line-up for 2016”, and PK Sound is proud of the strong relationship it has developed with Insomniac.
Insomniac's events have been key venues for the past year’s launch of PK’s Trinity speakers. The system has demonstrated its value in many respects, including making set-up significantly faster and safer – an important factor especially when schedules are tight at major venues. Another important factor, especially for events with multiple stages or where zoning sound restrictions in dense urban areas are a factor, is Trinity’s 3D Wavefront Control, which lets you remotely and easily focus the sound, so you can reduce the spill into adjacent zones and direct sound away from reflective surfaces.
The two New Year’s events were a fantastic way to wrap up the 2015 season for Trinity, demonstrating the system’s flexibility, power and diversity for live music on the big stage. Having established its reputation for creating the true connection between artist and fan, Trinity is poised to demonstrate in 2016 why it is destined to become the sound system of choice for performers in all music genres.
According to Silverstein, “Working with PK Sound is always a pleasure. In 2015 I had the privilege to play on Trinity twice. It’s been nothing short of spectacular each time.”
