Solaris Flares on Flume World Tour
Worldwide – On the heels of his highly acclaimed second album release “Skin,” Flume is taking his electronic genre on a world tour. The Australian producer has had a successful year of festival performances alongside an extensive headline tour of North America, Europe, and Australia.
“The current leg of the tour uses 26 Solaris Flares,” says tour LD Stu Dingley. “We use eight on the floor upstage to push color through the stage, and 18 overhead to melt the audience at key moments throughout the set.”
Dingley adds: “Flume is an electronic music producer, but the music isn’t EDM. We needed fixtures to reflect this, and the Flares offer the power needed for the big drops, yet still provide subtlety and warmth for the softer, intimate moments. We also use glitchy pixel effects as a great way of highlighting the abstract sounds in the music.
“Controlled by an MA2 console, we run the Flares in Advanced RGBW four-pixel mode and they’re performing brilliantly. No problems or issues at all. We ride them on a pre-rigged truss and they’re very tough. The intensity is second to none and the range of colours is incredible; we use a lot of pastel colours in this show.”
