CASE STUDY BRIEF:
Create a 7 x 12 metre speaker wall to be assembled on stage in less than twelve minutes for an Ed Sheeran and Rudimental performance.
"After transporting the set to the studio in London, the speaker stacks were assembled in sections outside."
We were given one week to produce this Es Devlin concept, so immediately began the design and fabrication process, creating and assembling CNC cut components including giant custom-made speaker cones.
The set was built and painted in-house in three days, ready for overnight transport to Fountain Studios in London.
The speaker stacks were assembled in sections outside and wheeled on-stage, with the upper sections hoisted up and the lower sections wheeled in beneath. Confetti cannons were also fitted for use during the performance. As soon as the recording finished, the set was broken down and removed off-stage in eight minutes.
