Brown Note turns to Elation IP‐rated luminaires for Red Rocks shows


With its open‐air amphitheater built into the surrounding sandstone, Red Rocks is one of live music’s more iconic venues. From September 24‐27, the fabled venue west of Denver was the scene of four glorious nights of in person and live‐streaming music experiences. Red Rocks partnered with video streaming service to cap the summer off in style with local Colorado production house Brown Note Productions providing a full Elation IP‐rated rig for the limited capacity 4‐night run. Ryan Knutson, President of Brown Note Productions, designed both the show lighting rig and rock lighting looks using the fleet of Elation IP‐rated lighting that Brown Note acquired last fall. Stage lighting gear lists varied slightly per show with the Tiësto show comprising the most fixtures: 36 Proteus Maximus™ LED profile moving heads, 32 Proteus Rayzor 760™ LED wash moving heads, 16 Protron Eclypse™ hybrid LED lights, 18 DTW Blinder 700 IP™ and 12 Seven Batten 72™ pixel bars. The rig provided ample amounts of punch and with all shows filmed for live stream viewing courtesy of 7 Cinematics and its film crew, the rig also fulfilled the needs of a multi‐ camera shoot. Brown Note used an additional 30 Maximus units to light up four rock formations in Red Rocks Park and a further 16 units to light the rock surrounding the amphitheater seating area.
