David Guetta shines with Claypaky in Bucharest

Romania - Acclaimed DJ David Guetta used the Claypaky Scenius Spot as the exclusive lighting fixture in his festival rig at the launch of Romania's inaugural TimeShift held at Bucharest's Romexpo arena in July.
Guetta's set design comprised four pieces of automated truss forming a large diamond shape that was rigged with 24 Scenius Spot fixtures.
"TimeShift's main stage rig was an adaptation of Guetta's touring rig," says Bogdan Gradisteanu, technical manager of Marbo Trade, Claypaky's official Romanian distributor. Marbo Trade worked alongside rental house Bivolul and ASC Systems to supply the festival's entire lighting package.
Providing keylight from the sides of the main stage were 16 Claypaky B-EYE K20s. "We selected the K20s because of the fixture's advanced versatility, beamshaper and CTO," explains Gradisteanu. The award-winning LED hybrid Wash, Beam and FX light was rigged in two lines of four on either side of the stage interspersed with Claypaky Sharpys. By alternating the two fixtures, the TimeShift team created varying textures of light onstage, whilst ensuring that the artists performing remained visible.
"The Sharpys are known as an industry standard in lightweight beam lights and are very popular fixtures in Romania due to their powerful, sharp beam and high output," says Gradisteanu. "To create depth to the stage we positioned them across eight pieces of horizontal truss, split four either side." The fixtures' beams reached out into the audience to create a high-impact light show.
"Claypaky fixtures are very popular on the Romanian market and have been for the past 20 years," continues Gradisteanu. "As the official Claypaky distributor in Romania, Marbo Trade is known to provide the latest in Claypaky products to the local market. Claypaky has been and remains a strong investment choice for any rental & production company in Romania."
