Europe - Lighting designer Jacopo Ricci made a fundamental contribution to staging Fedez's recent tour by selecting a high-impact lighting system, consisting of 52 Mythos 2 units and 20 Claypaky B-EYE K20s, all supplied by Mister X service based in Grumello Cremonese.
Jacopo Ricci said: “I chose Mythos 2 units for the versatility they allowed me. With these units, I could go from beam light to spotlight depending on the needs during the individual parts of the show, and I could program the fixtures differently during the show while exploiting the same installation points. I don't normally use beam lights very much, but in this case, the ability to switch to beam mode was really important. I can safely say that I made the most of the hybrid features of these units.”
The three front and two side trusses were all fitted with Mythos units, which Jacopo said he "used 90% as pure effects" including to drill through the semi-transparent cube of LED walls which opened up for the purpose. “I normally use a lot of gobo and animation wheel effects. I also used CMY variations and colour changes a lot. There are quick changes during each song, which I used as true effects. The Mythos units, however, also performed excellently as spotlights during the more theatrical and less complex moments of the show.”
The lighting designer also stressed the high reliability of the Mythos 2 units: “I didn't have to change a single fixture after eight days of 24 hour programming or at any time throughout the whole tour, and they all worked very smoothly, including as far as their colour rendering was concerned. I was extremely satisfied.”
