The Braunschweig Symphony Orchestra celebrated its sold-out Pop Meets Classic concert with a rousing performance and a stunning lighting set, featuring the Showline SL BEAM 300FX LED luminaires.
Staged at the Volkswagen Halle, the orchestra treated music fans to re-worked versions of well-known pop songs featuring local musicians and singers. Renowned lighting designer Stephan Aue has been involved in Pop Meets Classic since its inception: “I have full creative freedom and always like to use the latest technology, so I was delighted to be able to include 12 of the fixtures in my design for this year’s special show.”
“For Aue, the compact size of the luminaires was crucial for realizing the set design: “The fixtures couldn’t be too large otherwise they would have blocked the view. The Philips SL BEAM 300FX was extremely useful, allowing us to achieve the clean, uncluttered look we desired.
“The remarkable output for a light of this height caused it to stand out against the other LED wash lights…the multiple in-built macros allowed me to create a range of stunning effects.”
Despite its small size, the Philips SL BEAM 300FX produces an impressive output of 4,500 lumens, while its precise optical design allows the luminaire to function as both a beam and wash light.
Aue positioned the fixtures in a matrix construction under the back truss, where they flooded the stage with bold colors and varying texture.
