Mexico - Fifteen years after winning the Mexican reality/talent show La Academia, Carlos Rivera is still finding new ways to connect to audiences and stir passions. The award-winning singer and actor is demonstrating this on his current tour of South America, Mexico and the United States in support of his latest album, Guerra.
At his tour’s recent stops in Ciudad Juárez and Chihuahua, Mexico, lighting designer Daniel ‘Gacela’ Romero delivered a richly textured lightshow that featured Chauvet Professional fixtures, supplied by Pro Audio Solutions.
Romero chose 12 Maverick MK1 Hybrids, 12 Maverick MK3 Wash luminaires, 14 Maverick MK2 Spots, and 24 Rogue R2 Washes to amp up his tour design. The Maverick fixtures anchored his show.
Drawing on the overlapping 8- and 4-facet prisms, as well as the versatile gobo package of the Maverick MK1 Hybrid fixtures, Romero created an array of captivating looks that reflected the different moods conveyed by his client’s music. The Maverick MK2 Spot units contributed exciting aerial effects and specials to the show, while the Maverick MK3 Washes bathed the stage in captivating colours.
“With the Maverick fixtures, the pixels were fundamental during the design,” says Romero. “I used them in extended mode to take advantage of their flexibility, and because of the precision they offer with their pixel effects and chases.”
At the Ciudad Juárez venue, Romero faced the challenge of working a room with a 15m high ceiling. This required fixtures with wide beam angles to cover the space. The Maverick and Rogue fixtures easily met this challenge, ensuring that the entire area was endowed with even fields of light.
