GLP clear lines with X4 Bars

Working in close communication with directors Kim Frank and Michael Patrick Kelly, HELL’s team developed a very clear and cubic-looking stage and lighting design for the artist’s current DVD production, in which GLP’s impression X4 Bars and impression X4 atom played an essential role. “It was not until the end of April that HELL received the request from production and lighting designer Bertil Mark,” recalls Nik Evers, “so we did not have much time to complete the visual part of the upcoming DVD production.” In addition to Evers, Philip Hillers and Timo Martens also make up the HELL network for stage, light design and motion graphics. The impression X4 Bars have long been part of the lighting designer’s toolbox. It’s not just the effects that Evers appreciates, but also the ability to bring objects and dynamics together in a very special way. “With the impression X4 Bars I can create structures and images, give a set or a stage an architecture that will never be lost, no matter whether I use the Bars as a light source or as part of the installation,” states Evers, outlining his preference for these fixtures. “With conventional moving lights such a thing would never be possible, as at the end of the day it is just a collection of individual lamps. The impression X4 Bars are quite different because of their design alone.” A total of 72 impression X4 Bar 20 were used in the DVD production. In addition to the set, the ultra-compact GLP X4 atom was also pressed into service as the front light, “which we installed directly in front of the artists on the ground,” Evers continued. “Unlike the Bars, the X4 atom was a pure tool. That’s exactly what I appreciate these little lamps for. They are simple and unobtrusive, but they give a fantastic light. Installed directly in front of the artists, this does not create the impression of having gone to a huge, technical effort. On the contrary, the X4 atom remains completely unobtrusive.”
