CHAUVET Professional help light Les Rencontres Trans Musicales

Les Rencontres Trans Musicale, which was founded 44-years ago by Béatrice Macé and Jean-Louis Brossard. The festival serves up an outpouring of original music in an array of genres from a variety of places, which this year featured over 30 different nations.

The festival embraces a potpourri of artists for the express purpose of finding “the next big thing.”

Future stars, as well as established artists, performing in the festival’s spacious Greenroom hanger were supported by a dynamic and colourful lightshow with all the flexibility necessary to reflect their highly individual styles and personas. This was accomplished thanks to a crafted lighting design by Julien Trochu the LD of West Evénement, that featured a collection of CHAUVET Professional fixtures.

Drawn from West Evénement’s own inventory, these fixtures included 10 Rogue RH1 Hybrids, which were used to provide parallel beams above the stage, as well as for counter lighting; and 24 Rogue R2 Washes, positioned on the periphery of the room and arranged in blocks of six. Also adding to the visual impact were six Vesuvio II RGBA+UV LED colour mixing foggers in equal numbers on both sides of the stage.

“We chose the RH1 for its versatility, power and beam quality, while the R2 was chosen for its compactness and robustness, and the Vesuvio II for its smoke power,” said Trochu. “At this live event, the challenge was to meet the customer’s request by lighting both the stage and the audience. Our aim was to guarantee an immersive 360-degree visual experience for the audience.”

Working with Fabien Dupont (Pupitreur), Trochu and the West Evénement team accomplished this goal.
