Pulsar Chromabanks with Russell Crowe

30 Odd Foot of Grunt and two Pulsar ChromaBanks.

29 October 2003

Australia - Mid-way through their Australian tour, Russell Crowe and his band, '30 Odd Foot of Grunt', decided to add some more grunt to their lighting effects with two Pulsar ChromaBanks. Neale Mace, managing director of Entertainment Installations, who supplied both lighting and audio for the tour, explained: "I'd seen them in the factory and really liked them but I needed to use them on a gig to get a good idea of how they would perform and what we could do with them. For the size of venues we were playing, we already had quite a large moving light rig. We decided to place the ChromaBanks behind the drummer where we used them for straight colour as well as a strobing effect. The strobing effect was great and looked really good when used in conjunction with strobing movers. We also used some of the macros that are built into the units, which we then controlled on a fader."

The band's usual lighting designer, Anthony Petruzio, was unable to work on these particular shows as he was on tour with Grinspoon - and so the band's American lighting designer, Ethan Balmer, took the helm instead.
