Outline at Unipol Arena for "Circoloco" Event
Italy – The Club Music scene for years has had a strong impact on generations, influencing culture and entertainment in the music business. The major international EDM and Electro events are now even bigger and with increasingly important productions advancements.
On 9th December at the Bologna Unipol Arena the “Circoloco” was held, an international show of club house music where an Outline GTO system was the main PA for the event.
“Circoloco” is a format and a brand born in Ibiza many years ago, supported and created by Antonio Carbonaro, the owner of the famous DC10 music label. “Circoloco” has its own unique identity and includes many international artists who accompany this project around the world.
The audio design and set-up was entrusted to Emporio on Stage (Scandicci, Florence), with the support of the Outline staff. It was composed of 12 GTO systems + GTO-DF (down-fill) modules for sides, 12 + 12 DBS 18-2 sub-bass units, four + four infra-sub LAB 21 HS and six front-fill comprised of two Mantas 28s.
Angelo Catoni, owner of Emporio on Stage, commented: “For the main PA we installed 12 GTO + DF (down-fill) systems on each side of the stage that guaranteed optimal coverage of the venue and six Mantas 28 systems as front-fill to balance the medium / high frequencies. We have chosen to work with a ratio of 1/1 between top and sub adding four + four LAB 21 as infra in the central part to have a very important sum on the bass, given the type of event.”
The audio sound design for this event had to follow very precise directives required by the concerts production. For the Unipol Arena production, the importance of high coverage and sound pressure in a very large arena, like the Unipol, was a fundamental requirement for the success of the show.
Stated production manager Gualtiero Sabatini: “I was really impressed by the accuracy of the audio package and the final result. The audio coverage in the room was optimal, with an incredible sound pressure, deep and precise bass and fundamental for enhancing the music of the Circoloco show. I must say that I was pleasantly surprised also by the clean upper middle frequencies, even at such high sound pressure. What to say, the Outline GTO system is truly incredible.”
