Internationally acclaimed a capella group Pentatonix, who have been putting the harmonic sounds of a cappella music on the pop chart map the past few years, are playing to enthusiastic crowds on a 2016 world tour. Production Designer for the tour is Sooner Routhier of SRae Productions who wanted a large amount of fixtures to help paint a background for the Grammy-winning group and turned to Elation Professional’s compact ACL 360i™ beam effect light to create the look.
“Because Pentatonix is an a capella group, we had to make sure there was some sort of scenic and lighting,” Sooner explains of her design and the ACL 360i’s role in it. “We use the fixtures as a lighting backdrop for effects and lighting scenic. We use every feature in the light to help with the poppy effects programming for songs like the Daft Punk and Bieber medleys. At the same time, we can make them soft and use them in a simple beamy look that just sits for the softer, slower moves.”
