Solaris Flares and Mozarts Featured on The Voice and World of Dance
USA – Over the past year, Emmy Award winning designer Oscar Dominguez added significantly to the selection of Solaris fixtures used on his many projects, including NBC’s The Voice, and World of Dance. Recently, up to 124 Solaris Flare Rayzrs were added to the main stage of The Voice, for featured artists’ guest spots, as well as for contestants’ live, final rounds performances. Oscar also used up to almost 1,000 Solaris Mozart fixtures in unique, innovative ways on various sets.
“I’ve been a Flare fan for years, both the original Flares, and then the LR,” says Oscar. “Now, the new Rayzr ‘blade of light,’ which has all the Flare features, benefits and brightness in a super-thin linear form factor, has given us a radically different design element. It’s a terrific tool for creating unique light patterns and shapes. For some sets, I tactfully lined Rayzrs across the front riser, giving it a ‘floating’ feel while not interfering with the backlighting or spots. Offering an entirely different look, the Rayzr is well-named because it slices right through the picture!”
Oscar adds: “Also, two years ago, I was the first to use the original Solaris Mozarts on a TV set. Since then, I’ve been adding more and more to my designs, and using them constantly. Each season I find more uses for these super eye candies. Like sparkling jewels, the compact Mozarts look great up close or at a distance en masse. Recently, new Mozart FLR fixtures, with their 16 bright RGBW pixels, have added yet another new look to our designs. I especially appreciate the Mozart fixtures’ ease of wiring, and compact, lightweight designs, which allow me the flexibility to place them almost anywhere.”
Oscar concludes: “Over the years TMB, with its Solaris range, has introduced a variety of unique and excellent fixtures that provide endless creative options. I look forward to seeing what Solaris will come up with in 2019!”
