France - Parodic metal band Ultra Vomit and EDM solo act Sebastian are in the middle of popular autumn club and festival tours throughout France. The two artists have something else in common too, each is supported by high-energy light and video shows created by Chirac Design and run with ChamSys consoles.
“We tend to have intense clients, and we strive to match their intensity with our shows,” says Chirac co-founder and Marilyn Manson LD Nico Riot. “I have been a ChamSys user for quite some time, because the simplicity of the console frees me up to do the things I envision.”
Riot’s enthusiasm for ChamSys is shared by his partner and Chirac co-founder Romain Dronne, who is using a ChamSys MagicQ MQ60 to run shows for Sebastian, and Gregory Dutein, who is powering Ultra Vomit shows with a MagicQ MQ80 plus an extra wing.
“Sebastian is an EDM light show, but without the cliché of it,” says Dronne. “Our show has to be tight on the rhythm, but with flood lights - and not an army of tight narrow beams. We are doing RGB fast colour chasers. Ultra Vomit is more like a theatre comedy rock show that includes standup comedy and light, as well as sound effects, managed via ChamSys Magic HD.”
For Ultra Vomit’s tour, the Chirac team began the design process on a ChamSys MagicQ MQ500, then once the show was programmed switched to a MQ80 plus an extra wing.
“Each song Ultra Vomit does is a parody of a musical genre inside the metal sphere,” says Dutein. “We respect all the codes of every genre in term of lights and video contents. On black metal songs we use cold colours, strobes, smoke, and visual elements with black metal fonts. It's more like a theatre rock show with a lot of jokes and interactions with the audience.”
