Ayrton Domino Profile on tour with Cremonini
Cesare Cremonini's Stadium Tour 2022 Milano, started in Milan and closed with a resounding event at the Imola racetrack. The project and lighting direction were imagined and designed by Lighting Designer Mamo Pozzoli. For the occasion, Mamo created an imposing wall of light built with diﬀerent units but amalgamated in a look that is aggressive and elegant at the same time, thanks to very elaborate dynamics and original research on monochromaticism. 80 Ayrton Domino Profile S and 50 Ayrton MagicPanel R were included in the lighting plot.
"We built an LED wall divided into about 500 units of diﬀerent types, whose spatial distribution organized in large arrays oﬀered me the opportunity to constantly play on the dynamics of the lighting and the sudden changes of colour," Mamo says. "For the first time I used a substantial number of Domino Profile IP65 fixtures, arranged on long linear trusses in front of the stage as well as on the floor on the catwalk. It’s an exceptional fixture that allowed me, through power and reliability, several creative possibilities and constant performance even in extreme weather conditions, especially during rehearsals, a crucial moment in the planning of any show.
Similarly, through the consolidated matrices of MagicPanel (a product I have been using for many years), I pushed particularly on the graphics side, using the MagicPanel in Extended Mode. As is my habit, I rarely used both fixtures in tracking beam mode, preferring instead an open management to maximize the flare eﬀect when looking at the source. I was interested in constantly engaging the whole stadium, and the incredible zoom openness of the Dominoes, in this respect, is unique." A special note goes to the highlight of the tour: a rotating mechanical bridge that lifted Cesare into the audience ... with a single Domino positioned above the bridge itself on the opposite side to illuminate the artist in an original two‐way dialogue. The Ayrton fixtures were presented by Ayrton's exclusive distributor in Italy, Molpass, and supplied by Agora service.
