102 Acme Gemini fixtures have been specified for the tour and they have been delivering a great performance show after show. “I knew coming into the show that we would have the opportunity to create unique lighting for different moments. The design had to be flexible to work with all those different styles; pretty one moment and subtle as a sledgehammer the next”, comments Ben Dalgleish, lighting designer of the tour. “I was blown away by how effective the Gemini fixtures could be used in multiple ways. It’s a strong linear fixture. When lights are hung end to end, it creates a curtain of light, but also has an effective zoom. Of course, the secret sauce in that fixture is that it has the white strobe on the back side of the head, having infinite pan and tilt was an effective look”.
“The other look would be ‘Goldwing’,” explains Ben, … “Where we took inspiration from the song and the visuals created, and went with an interesting look that featured the Gemini fixtures as if they were bending light, which was masterfully programmed by Kasper Iseger. A lot of time was spent trying out looks and essentially we would be on version five of the song until we were happy with it in the lighting programming.”
