UK - Bristol-based event production design and delivery specialist Pytch has invested in 72 new Astera Titan Tubes – adding to their existing 32 Astera AX3 LightDrops.
The LightDrops were originally purchased for creating table centres for events and gala dinners and Pytch have produced some custom covers that refract and treat the AX3 light in different ways.
Recently Pytch ran a PytchLab session - an experimental event where different ideas and concepts can be tried and tested for effectivity and practicality - using the AX3s and the Titan Tubes to illuminate the underside of the plane in numerous striking ways.
However, the Titan Tubes were specifically an investment for the three virtual studios that Pytch has been running since the start of the pandemic, which have steadily been getting busier, utilised for a range of corporate presentations, meetings and business events plus livestreams concerts, fashion shows and other broadcasts.
The initial 24 x Titan Tubes went into the first studio and were such a success that it was decided to replicate the look in the other two spaces so all were identical, explained Pytch’s head of lighting, Dan Giddings.
Recently, Dan designed lighting for a multiple artist recording session at Pytch for a collection of musical talent - vocalist Ruth Royall, the Paper Dragon collective, d ‘n’ b producers Grafix and Toronto Is Broken, dubstep bassmaster Axel Boy and fluid d ‘n’ b impresario Somatic – all for the Our Space record label.
The goal was to record the footage for music videos and other promotional collateral and also to release full length streamed sets online in the future. The session offered a great opportunity for Dan to use the Titan Tubes in some interesting and inventive ways and maximise their pixel mapping capabilities. He rigged the fixtures at ground level and at various hights around the studio for a strong and distinctive signature look that would work for all artists.
