Audio Engineering and dot2 rocks James
When British indie rockers, James, performed at the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens, the full technical was supplied by Audio Engineering, who used their brand-new MA dot2 to run the spectacular show. “What an excellent production!” said Marcel Bezuidenhout, owner of Audio Engineering based in Cape Town. Very proud to be associated with the Kirstenbosch Summer Sunset Concerts for the past twenty years, Marcel has been pleased to watch the annual event take off as his company has steadily built up a retinue of professional gear, the latest being the investment of a MA Lighting dot2 console purchased DWR Distribution. Bradley Bruchhausen and Jethro Jordaan from DWR Cape Town will offer the training and support when needed. “We chose the dot2 to align ourselves with current industry trends in South Africa and more specifically Cape Town,” Marcel elaborated.
“The size and capabilities of the console makes it very attractive for our small to medium events, however we made it work for James, an International show, pretty much straight out of the box, where it was used by lighting designer JP Willson.” With an exceptionally busy season, the console’s very first gig was for a film shoot, followed by the James concert, and was then used on twenty different shows during December. “Marcel and his team at Audio Engineering are a passionate group of individuals, continually striving to fine-tune their craft,” said Robert Izzett of DWR. “They work hard, love what they do and are an inspiration to watch. Thank you for your continued support.”
