d&b goes to school in Denmark
2 August 2007
Denmark - Part of a noble tradition, the new European Performers House at the Institute of Performing Arts (IPA) Silkeborg, a new international school for young actors, musicians and dancers, has set itself an exacting target - to draw almost half its students from the wider Europe, beyond the borders of Denmark.
European Performers House (EPH) intends to be at the forefront of entertainment in the arts and has already forged relations with comparable institutions around Europe, securing agreement for EPH studies to count towards formal educational qualifications from those institutes.
As such, they have invested heavily in the tools and technologies of modern presentation, the entire school is networked through an Apple Mac server system, linking all rooms to the resources of recording studios and other such facilities maintained on campus.
Audio receives much attention; all performance areas and rehearsal rooms are equipped with d&b audiotechnik loudspeaker systems with a selection of modern digital desks for control.
The school has three stages, the largest being The Workshop Stage where the loudspeakers are mainly d&b audiotechnik's MAX cabinets, chosen for their versatility and the ease with which they can be moved and reconfigured. The school uses the MAXs as a PA system or for monitors.
For The Dance Studio, EPH has secured rental PA services from nearby providers who also favour the d&b brand, offering systems of C7 and C4s.
The school has now invested further by purchasing M4 monitors to work with these PA systems.
