Yanni Puerto Rico concert lit by Chauvet

Yanni plays Castillo San Felipe del Morro in Puerto Rico

12 July 2012

Puerto Rico - Yanni sets himself apart by choosing historical places for his live recordings: previous settings include the Acropolis in Greece, the Taj Mahal in India, the Forbidden City in China and the Royal Albert Hall in the UK.

His most recent concert and DVD recording took place in another majestic location, at Castillo San Felipe del Morro in Puerto Rico. The front wall of the fortress became the central visual attraction for the two-day concert and recording acting as a background for the stage positioned in front on the grass near the ocean. "The concept was to illuminate the wall of El Morro, as the fort was the main part of the scenography," said lighting designer Bud Horowitz.

"Yanni has been waiting 20 years to perform at El Morro," continued Horowitz. "The advantage of working with Chauvet LED products was the ability to play with colours and see what worked best with the wall." Musique Xpress Lights, Inc. provided the 55 Chauvet Professional IP-rated and LED-fitted luminaires for the concert event.

Once used as observation and defence points, carved niches housed 30 COLORado 1 IP wash lights. "COLORado 1 IP lights gave dimension and worked well with the stone," said Horowitz.

"The walls are made of dark rocks, and absorbed a lot of light," said lighting designer Edward Aviles. "So, we needed very bright fixtures to help bring out the texture of the wall and to light them up."

Twelve COLOrado 3p IP, nine COLORado Ridge IP and five COLORado Range IP wash lights illuminated about 700ft of the rocky wall. "My favourite fixture from is the COLORado Range IP," Aviles said. "We were able to cover a large area with just five fixtures."
