Boasting an extensive touring inventory (including EAW and Funktion One systems, plus a growing stock of Nexo speakers) Norwest Productions Pty Limited (Sydney) is one of Australia’s largest audio companies and has become the first Lake Contour customer in the country.
“Here at Norwest, we pride ourselves on providing the best quality live sound for artists touring Australia,” said Christopher Kennedy, director of Norwest Productions. “So when we saw the new Lake Contour and heard what it does, both in terms of improving quality and power, we decided that we needed to be the first in Australia to offer it to our customers.”
Norwest Productions maintains a huge inventory of state-of-the-art audio and A/V equipment and offers a range of services from concert production to complete event technical support. The company provided audio services for the opening and closing ceremonies of the Sydney 2000 Olympics; supplied touring sound services for recent tours by Jamiroquai, Underworld, Usher and Bryan Adams; and furnished broadcast audio support for Big Brother, the ARIA Awards, Perfect Match and Hi 5.
Bruce Jackson, audio director for the Sydney 2000 Olympics and now VP of research for Lake Technology, said, “The Lake Contour has revolutionized the way that the performance of concert sound systems is optimized, bringing unique sound-reshaping capabilities to touring systems. I am thrilled that Chris Kennedy and his staff at Norwest Productions havebecome the first in Australia to adopt Contour. I have worked many times with Chris, and I know how much ‘the best sound’ means to him. The Contour’s technology, together with Chris’ great crews, will bring out the best in their already state-of-the-art concert sound systems.”
