Establishing itself as THE Live Technology & Installation show in Australia, which forms part of the ‘Australian Entertainment Technology Week’, ENTECH is proud to confirm the addition of two more key industry players to the schedule.
Adding to the international profile of the event, leading audio designer Scott Willsallen from Auditoria will be presenting a keynote on ‘Sound Design for the World’s Largest Events’. Using the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games as a case study, the session will step through the various elements of sound design for major international events. An overview of the process, roles and responsibilities will be presented followed by a detailed presentation of some more specific topics to be chosen by the audience on the day.
Large venues and public spaces are Scott’s specialty due to his extensive experience and understanding of the audience expectation of sound in large spaces. Scott’s design approach is a balance of scientific processes learnt during his studies and vast experience. Anyone interested in Sound Design will benefit from attending this session, as Scott welcomes audience interaction to ensure they get the most out of the presentation.
Ramus Illumination Director, Bruce Ramus, also joins the program as a keynote speaker. In his presentation, ‘Lighting Design and Digital Media – Making the Connection’ Bruce has designed and directed international live shows and events for 30 years, and will present and discuss his works; from U2 through to his present day architectural works, focusing on how digital media has become an integral part of lighting in the entertainment industry, and is now becoming widely used in the public realm and built environment. He will discuss how this trend can create either a positive or negative outcome for our communities.
Bruce describes his work as being about connection. He designs installations as luminous interactive sculptures, both permanent and temporary, practical and playful. His personal perspective on the development of his profession will be a must attend session for anyone interested in lighting design.
