I will have 2 evenings without the choir to check and refine the lighting before the tech run-through…
I told James early on that I felt that the players should be like Giacometti figures…
Today I finally obtained some DMX lighting tools, thanks to the kind support of Marie-José Collet and Yann Blitte at Panalux France.
Kim and I made a model at about 1/20th scale of the stage area in Winthrop Hall. It may prove very useful indeed. I don’t have precise measurements, but I estimated the stage surface as 15 meters wide and 21 meters deep (from the back to the front-most side door).
After meeting the friendly director of a French lighting company, I came up with these 2 sketches of wiring diagrams:
The simplest configuration involves connecting my Mac to a USB/DMX converter, which is then connected to a DMX-controlled dimmer and 2 fixtures. The hope is to control the lights with the Vista software, and record the settings in a DMX Vista file that can be exported for use on the bigger Vista desk in Perth.
The second configuration involves connecting via USB to a small lighting desk, with the hope of recording settings to the Vista software & also exporting them to Perth.
