Chauvet enhances Fister firepower

USA - Gerry Dintelman designed a show for sludge band Fister’s 90-minute Video Death livestream at the Arch City Audio Visual Services studio in St Louis. Working with a rig that featured over 50 Chauvet Professional fixtures, plus 104 PVP S5 LED video panels, he took viewers on a visual journey that wove its way seamlessly through his client’s heavy, often abrasive rhythms.
“We wanted the rig to look as aggressive as Fister’s sound is, so the whole design revolved around the idea of sharp angles, tons of back light, and intense visuals,” said Dintelman. “I definitely needed all the firepower I could get to convey the spirit of the music.”
Central to Dintelman’s design was a V-shaped truss configuration that converged on the drum stand. Made with four sticks of 8ft truss slanted at a 45-degree angle, each holding 11 Rogue R2 Wash fixtures and 10 PVP S5 panels, the structure projected a potent visual exclamation throughout the video.
“The V-shaped element was a clear reference point that centred the look on stage,” said Dintelman. “We liked how it pulled eyeballs into the centre of the stage, especially since this was being streamed - and in many cases - watched on small screens. I have to thank Kevin Kwater, who ran our video wall content and Chris Keith for this V-shaped truss idea.”
Positioned in the middle of the V-shaped truss structure was a massive video wall. Working in coordination with other video panels spread across the backstage as well as those on the truss structure itself, the wall was used to create a tidal wave of aggressive images in support of the band.
Balanced with the V-shaped structure and video displays were six NEXT NXT-1 moving heads upstage behind the drummer and below the beams, 12 Nexus 4x4 panels, and 12 Rogue R2 Beams.
