Marco Kunz is playing Swiss festivals throughout the summer
Switzerland - Marco Kunz released his fifth album Förschi earlier this year, and from March to May, he set out on a club tour throughout Switzerland.
LD Benjamin ‘Beni’ Bohler, who has previously worked for numerous other Swiss artists, including Luca Hänni, Bubble Beatz and Züri West, was at the console for the first time with Kunz. He states: “With my lighting art I want to transport audiences to a free, unencumbered world that both fascinates and amazes them. Of course, it’s always about creating a recognition value for the music, and supporting the artists on stage to the optimum.”
Party of his armoury for the Kunz tour included six impression E350, which Beni set on the stage, on three different levels. Also represented in the lighting design were a number of GLP impression X4 Wash.
“I used the E350 to play with shadows and bring movement to the stage,” he explains. “That’s how various effects were achieved that you do not necessarily see every day. The large zoom, the excellent colour rendering and the enormous speed of the lamp gave the light show a lot of dynamism. For me the E350 is an ingenious lamp that I would like to use again and again.”
Finally, he paid tribute to GLP’s Oliver Schwendke and Andreas Brandt. “They provided great cooperation and I look forward to many more great projects using GLP fixtures in the future.”
Kunz’s performance and Beni Bohler’s lighting design can be seen and heard over the summer at numerous festivals throughout Switzerland.
