Clay Paky gets pop happy with K3

K3 kicked off their EYO tour with shows at the Sportpaleis in Antwerp and the Ahoy, Rotterdam

20 July 2012

Belgium - An army of Clay Paky fixtures brightened up kids' faces across the Benelux region as K3, kicked off their EYO tour at the Sportpaleis in Antwerp and the Ahoy, Rotterdam.

Prolific lighting designer Luc Peumans employed more than 90 Clay Paky Alpha Beam 1500s and 24 Clay Paky Sharpys to create a magical and dynamic backdrop, bursting with colour, for Flemish / Dutch girl band K3 - who are currently flying high as one of Europe's biggest pop acts targeted specifically at young children.

The set backdrop was a 600sq.m LED video wall and Peumans was looking for a fixture that would compete with that as he explains: "I needed fixtures with a punchy and powerful beam. The Alpha Beam 1500 and the Sharpys were my first choice. The Alpha Beams were used for various beam looks and as backlight specials for the K3 girls and their dancers. I used the frost function to change between softer spots and really punchy beams. I then used the Sharpys to create animated beam effects in the air."

Pio Nahum, chief commercial officer for Clay Paky comments: "Yet again Luc has created an exciting and dynamic lighting design using the Clay Paky range. We're delighted to see the variety of events and shows he and his company PWL are creating. His work often pushes the feature set of the fixtures to new levels bringing plenty of opportunities to show off how much they can do."
