For his latest tour, called “Moon Landing”, James Blunt wanted to give those in his audience a space like feel while attending the show. So he hired the team atStrictly FXof Chicago, to bring in lasers and other visual elements, allowing him to bring his vision to life.
James is known forloving lasers, but the challenge with this show was to balance the lasers with the 9.5 meter F15 LED wall upstage. To accomplish such a feat, Programmer David Kennedy of Strictly FX used the PangolinBEYONDsoftware, to create a variety of inspiring looks, with unique colors, to really make the lasers shine through. David goes on to say… “ThePangolin Beyond softwaregives us flexibility… This program keeps us really loose and able to deliver what the client wants all the time. A lot of our acts will change songs or looks at the last second, and the software helps us a lot with that”, says Kennedy.
Strictly FX provided 2 high power Arctos full color RGBY, as well as 16 small single beam XPod 300mW lasers all controlled using thePangolin BEYOND software. The Arctos units were located upstage right and left, while the XPod diode units were clustered around James and his piano.
