Ayrton MagicBlade™-R key to Haywyre’s Discovery + Form Tour
American musician, music producer, composer and DJ, Martin Vogt – known by his stage name of Haywyre – hit the road this February with his Discovery + Form tour. To maintain the visual integrity of the production between venues, lighting designer, Taylor (Brotay) Copp chose Ayrton MagicBlade™-R fixtures, supplied by Hivemind Lux LLC, as his highly versatile key lights. “We mount the MagicBlade-Rs on to black poles on either side of the stage,” says Eric Bindman, Haywyre’s tour manager.
“We can up- or down-scale this arrangement to suit each venue, and because it requires no overhead truss, we can fit into the smallest room. “The complete scale-ability of the design means we can keep true to the identity of the show design without having to rework the set from venue to venue. This is really important, firstly because Haywyre relies heavily on our visual cues, and secondly because it ensures we can deliver the same standard of show to every venue regardless of size. The MagicBlades are totally instrumental in keeping the promoters and the artist happy!”
