A Robot, a Car Park and a Y-Series First - 2015

Encore Pro Audio Ltd, a company known to deploy loudspeakers on dog sleds in the Arctic Circle in the service of art, provided the recently launched Y-Series and reputable expertise. “They are fantastic,” said event producer Joana Seguro. “We installed a quad system of pole mounted Y10s on top of Y-SUBs around the rectangle of the performance area, described Encore’s Luke Turnbull. “All were facing inwards; the audience sat within the field of propagation on the perimeter of the performance space, the loudspeakers projecting across a twenty metre listening area, enabling a spatial dimension to sound reproduction."

Encore for the Noise Boys - 2012
