Full speed ahead for GLP’s KNV

The second edition of the Volle Kraft Voraus Festival, organised by the German band Eisbrecher, took place in Ratiopharm Arena in Neu-Ulm. The band was also celebrating their 15th anniversary and production company Rain Age GmbH from Landsberg am Lech were on hand for the band’s anniversary event. Martin Heining of Rain Age, who is also lighting designer for Eisbrecher, built creatively on the band’s existing tour design, which was expanded for the arena. Among other GLP effects, the impression X4 and impression X4 L were also available. As a special effect, he used 36 of GLP’s KNV Cube for the first time. The new, modular KNV LED system combines strobe, blinder and pixel effect. The individual modules can be combined easily and in a variety of ways to build creative shapes. Each KNV module has 25 power pixels, each consisting of an extremely bright white light LED and a surrounding ring of 16 RGB multicolour LEDs, which together create 50,000 lumens of light output. Martin reinforced the deliberate industrial look with six GLP Force 120 fixtures, which were placed in two blocks of three to the left and right of the stage. The rotor, with integrated RGB LED lighting in the blades, is perfect for creating dramatic effects or unique scenic elements and fits easily into the Eisbrecher set, as Martin explains: “On the one hand, the Force 120 is a beautiful decorative element on stage, while on the other, the actual wind output is exciting. Since the band Eisbrecher is also very ‘maritime’ in direction, it was a great pleasure to be able to add another sense, with the Force 120. For example, in songs like ‘Sturmfahrt’ you could feel the wind in the arena.”
