digicothe event was hosted by Andrew Bruce
UK - July saw over 100 delegates assemble at the Jerwood Vanbrugh Theatre, (one of three theatres within the central London campus of RADA, The Royal Academy Of Dramatic Art), for a review of DiGiCo’s new Quantum Engine and designed-for-theatre T software.
Hosted by DiGiCo and Autograph Sound, the day opened with Autograph’s co-founder Andrew Bruce telling his story from the early 70’s to the present day. This section effectively charted the development of modern theatre sound, using anecdotes and images of legendary West End shows including Starlight Express, Cats, Miss Saigon and many others.
Ably assisted by Autograph sound designers Avgoustos Psillas and Gareth Tucker, plus Tom Williams and Dan Page from DiGiCo, Andrew then spent the remainder of the day walking delegates through the functionality of the T software.
One of the delegates was Jeremy George, head of sound at the Theatre Royal Stratford East, who commented: “I really enjoyed learning about the origins and deeper functions of software that I use daily, not to mention [it was] very useful in terms of tips and ideas to try next time I’m programming a show’ - which, as it happened, was a few hours after the Quantum Synergy day had finished. T Software makes my life easier on a daily-basis. It’s definitely the best way to programme and operate theatre sound.”
