NEXUS and NXT-1 Help KM Productions ROCK NYE!

NYEatNYC2

NEW YORK– In the city that gave us Times Square, New Year’s Eve is just too big to be confined to one night. That is why RPM Presents created Big Week NYC, a weeklong, heart-pounding EDM celebration, to ring in the New Year with sick beats by superstars like Martin Garrix and Kaskade and a scintillating lightshow created by Kevin Mignone and Mike Gionfriddo of KM Productions using a collection of fixtures from CHAUVET Professional.

Held in Manhattan starting December 27 and going on through the wee hours of January 1, the event drew visitors from around the world. Most of the performances took place at Pier 94, a 135,000 square foot historic dock and warehouse that was converted into New York’s hottest pop-up concert venue.

Artists like Carnage, Armin van Buuren and Disclosure rocked the famous Pier 94 stage. This all-star lineup preforming at a world-renowned venue required an intense lightshow, which is exactly what KM Productions created using the ultra-bright Nexus 4×4 LED set pieces and Next NXT-1 moving LED panels. For good measure, the KM designers engaged the crowd with aerial beams from 24 overhead Legend 330SR Spots.

“We were going for layered fullness in this design,” said Mignone. “Our vision was to fill the room with punchy textured lighting. This is a high-energy, star-studded event on one of the biggest nights of the year so we needed a powerful lightshow. Anyone who’s been to Pier 94 knows it’s a spacious room, so we needed lights that had significant output if we hoped to fill it. The Nexus, NXT-1 and the 330SRs all have the ability to do that, so they were the best choice.”

Mignone and Gionfriddo used 16 Nexus 4 x 4 panels in their Pier 94 design. The panels were positioned throughout the stage on truss and at times ran at 100 percent brightness to create an intense blinder effect. “We were looking for brightness at this kind of event and in this venue, and the Nexus delivered it,” said Gionfriddo.

The designers positioned 12 Next NXT-1 moving LED panels over the stage, using their built-in dynamic and static patterns to create a variety of audience engaging looks.  “We felt that the moving panels overhead helped draw people into the stage even though the room was very large,” said Mignone. “We also relied on the rapidly moving Legend beams to create a festival feeling throughout the audience. People expect to be a part of something big on New Year’s Eve, and a dynamic lightshow is one of the ingredients that help make that happen.”
