Tommy Hilfiger Europe recently selected an Alcons systems for its European Hilfiger Sessions, which are a new jam-session concept where top and upcoming artists join for an “in-the-round” concert in a cozy atmosphere.
One of the features of the “Hilfiger Session” is that the band is not positioned onstage, but in the middle of the venue. The audience is sitting around the band (on beanbags!), which requires a different setup of the sound system. Furthermore, gain before feedback is very critical in this position. The applied system comprises four clusters of each three units LR14 ultra-compact pro ribbon line array (powered and controlled by ALC controller amps) that are flown from a circular truss positioned above the band.
