grandMA specified for London performance by breaking US artist Andrew W. K.

25th October 2001

Following hot on the heels of a front-page story in the NME, Mercury Records chose London venue 'the garage' to showcase breaking US artist Andrew W. K.

To ensure the success of this important appearance on the evening of Tuesday 23rd October, Andrew and his record company brought in US lighting designer Warren Flynn to devise, programme and operate the lighting.

Warren's first move was to specify an MA Lighting grandMA console. The console was supplied by Neg Earth Lights along with a rig comprising High End Systems Studio Spot 250's and 4 lamp Molefay units which were used to supplement the venues extensive array of parcans. During rehearsals, Warren explained his choice of console by stating, "I just love the way that with this board everything is totally user definable" and continued "The three high contrast colour touch screens coupled with the consoles powerful operating system provide huge amounts of flexibility".

Glyn O'Dognoghue of A.C. Lighting, UK exclusive distributor for MA Lighting, commented, "The specifying of the grandMA by Warren Flynn at such an important occasion to introduce a new artist further demonstrates the increasing popularity of MA Lighting consoles." To reinforce this statement, Glyn continued, "Warren has also chosen a grandMA console for the forthcoming Broadway production of "Thoroughly Modern Millie" which opens at the Marriot Marquis theatre early next year."
