Europe - The 2019 arena tour of Saveus, a Danish electronic pop/soul act, featured an impressive setup that featured CLF Orion fixtures.
LD Theis Wermuth from Create This was asked to create a spectacular look for the 2019 arena shows in Copenhagen and Aarhus. With the idea of creating big pods of light, needed for an electronic/digital look, he included ladders with 24 CLF Orion hybrid moving heads and 32 CLF Ares LEDwashes as main light.
Theis Wermuth explained, “I wanted a powerful hybrid fixture that could make beams and nice breakup looks. The CLF Orion was more the answer. They were used for creating nice, subtle looks, but also for powerful highlights. For strobe effects I searched for a powerful LED fixture. I was hugely impressed by the output of the CLF Ares when using them before, so I decided to use them as LED strobe.” Both fixtures will be deployed for the Saveus festival tour.
All equipment for the shows was supplied by rental company Sound & Light, based in the northern part of Denmark and founded in the 80s. Says Frederik Lisborg, “We do our very best to make sure that all equipment looks and works like new. We have been using the CLF Ares for one year now and it hasn’t let us down. Based on the service level of distributor Atendi and CLF Lighting, the CLF Orion was the go-to fixture when looking for a hybrid replacement.”
“The CLF Orion fulfils our need for a powerful hybrid fixture, with CMY colour mixing. It ticks all the boxes; fantastic output, large zoom ratio without the need to change modes, nice gobos and mid-air effects. Furthermore, the build quality is great and the fixtures are easy to service.”
After the shows, the CLF Orions went on to make their Danish TV-debut, lighting the TV2-North Årets Nordjyde 2019 television show. The fixtures are booked all summer, starting with Aalborg Carnival, followed by the Saveus summer tour.
