i-Vision on Promenade

11 October 2001

Architectural lighting specialists i-Vision supplied equipment, crew and expertise to lighting designer Lee Forde to illuminate a spectacular urban backdrop to the Liverpool section of the BBC's recent Proms In The Park broadcast. Liverpool's event - part of a quartet of shows also staged in London, St Austell and Gateshead - was located in William Brown Street near St Georges Hall in the heart of Liverpool's Cultural Quarter. The concert was promoted by Liverpool City council, the Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and the Capital Of Culture bid, and was attended by a crowd of over 4000, entertained by the LPO conducted by Gerard Schwartz.

The buildings to the right of the audience as they looked stage-ward are the majestic NMGM Museum and the Liverpool City Council Central Library. After the first Liverpool Proms event last year, the BBC realized that they were missing some great visual opportunities by leaving these buildings in darkness. Lee Forde, heads Liverpool City Council's Cultural Events office, is also at the core of Liverpool Vision, an on-going scheme to permanently architecturally light the city's famous landmarks - the first part of which was the lighting of St George's Hall itself. For the Proms, i-Vision provided various lighting fixtures and equipment including six Space Cannon Ireo Pros, over 60 blue and green HQI 400s, Coemar Panoramas, Studio Due City Colors, two Dominators, a Jands Hog 600 for control and a 40W YAG laser with it's own Magnum controller.

The Space Cannons flanked the stage, and the laser was rigged at the rear. The LPO's own LD Pete Murphy used a separate over-stage lighting system supplied by Concert Lights. Sound was by Audiocom.
