USA - Celebrated for its relentless touring and engaging live shows, San Diego's Slightly Stoopid has been out on the road for a good chunk of 2019 in support of its 13th and most recent album, Everyday Life, Everyday People.
To visually bring its shows to life in concert, Slightly Stoopid now turns to Pulse Lighting, which supplies a full complement of Avolites gear, including a Sapphire Touch console, Ai software, and the lighting manufacturer’s new Synergy feature set.
“Every design starts with a conversation. The more we interact with our artists, the better the design translates,” says Mikey Cummings of Pulse Lighting.
As a lead designer at Pulse’s Nashville headquarters, Cummings has designed for a long list of Grammy-award-winning artists, including Brandi Carlile, Jason Isbell, and Old Crow Medicine Show. Every tour he designs goes out with Avolites control.
“A majority of our tours use the Sapphire Touch, Arena, or Tiger Touch II,” he says. “With lots of video, colour-mixing lasers, and LEDs in Slightly Stoopid’s design, we knew this would be a great opportunity to dive into Avolites’ new Synergy software alongside the Ai software we were already planning to use.
“We designed the rig for their Mexico festival. After its success, they asked us to do some one-off designs for festivals and shows in the spring. Basically, we were creating independent lighting designs for each show based upon what local vendors could provide. They were pleased with everything we had done, so they asked us to present a full lighting design for their summer tour.”
