After successful sold-out runs in Los Angeles and London, the multi-media celebration Danny Elfman’s Music from the Films of Tim Burton held fort for a weeklong run at the Avery Fisher Music Hall in New York City.
Quite a unique event for an orchestra-oriented venue as composer Elfman and filmmaker Burton have teamed on over a dozen projects spanning some three decades, this event inviting attendees to clad in costumes of their favorite film characters, with the orchestra and chorus performing in concert with visuals of Tim Burtons original sketches, drawings, story boards, and film clips on the big screen above.
For such an event, sound is a critical component of the presentation. For that, a RCF TTL line array system was selected comprised a left-right hang of 20 TTL33-A three-way line array modules with four TTS56-A double 21 subwoofers. Four TT052-A dual 5 cabinets were added for front of stage lip fill, and four TT08-A 8 two-way cabinets provided monitoring for the conductor and choir. The system was operated through RCFs RDNet 2.2 software, which provided the house engineer both control and monitoring of the system in real time.
