Chirac Design tours France with ChamSys
Metal band Ultra Vomit and EDM solo act Sebastian serve up two very different styles of music. Both are in the middle of popular fall club and festival tours throughout France and both artists have something else in common too, each is supported by high-energy light and video shows created by Chirac Design and run with ChamSys consoles.
“I have been a ChamSys user for quite some time, because the simplicity of the console frees me up to do the things I envision,” said Chirac co-founder and Marilyn Manson LD Nico Riot. Riot’s enthusiasm for ChamSys is shared by his partner and Chirac cofounder Romain Dronne, who is using a ChamSys MagicQ MQ60 to run shows for Sebastian, and Gregory Dutein, who is powering Ultra Vomit shows with a MagicQ MQ80 plus an extra wing. For Ultra Vomit’s tour, the Chirac team began the design process on a ChamSys MagicQ MQ500, then once the show was programmed switched to a MQ80 plus an extra wing. “The ChamSys morphing option works great because it’s really fast,” said Dutein. “Also, the changing fixture palette option saves a lot of time. I love the cool and simple cue stack macros. It is very easy to change a page in a cue list, or activate a playback with only two characters.”
