Minsk’s Prime Hall turns on its PR Lighting rig for J:Mors
Belarusian rock band J:Mors recently played a concert in the Prime Hall concert hall in Minsk with the lighting design by the band’s longtime collaborator, Alexander Bobel, director of the GrandLight Studio. Assisting him were numerous products from the PR Lighting portfolio. A total of 10 XLED 3109s were deployed—four in the booms and six on the back truss. “Those mounted on the cases were used as shooting devices and for spectacular shadows on faces, which we achieved with the help of dimmer and colour effects, since we decided to abandon the front light.
“We used 24 XR 300 Beam, which were used to obtain pictures in space and geometric shapes in support of the [ aviation theme] content on the screen (as well as a spectacular picture in those moments when the screen was not used).” Bobel also deployed 13 of PR Lighting’s XS 1200 Spot. “The gobo, made it possible to make the scene more mysterious and interesting,” he explained, “and by changing the angle of the beam, we could enhance the geometric effect.” Six XLED 3108 instruments on the back-up truss were used to focus on musicians and for general stage fills, while four separate blinders and four stroboscopes provided the additional punch. It was another resounding success, both for Alexander Bobel, the Prime Hall technical infrastructure and J:Mors themselves, as the crowd of 3,000 fans went home elated.
