Lighting Requirement

• NOTE - Sonic Impulse travels with a mobile lighting set up. The light show involves the use of UV/Blacklight effects, intelligent club style lighting, smoke, haze, and practicals, and can be scaled for venues ranging from smaller clubs/bars to medium size festival stages. All of the instruments are housed in mounts and truss that can sit freely on the stage. No house hang is required. The entire show is triggered and run via midi from a DMX controller that is interfaced with a computer playback system. No additional light board operator is necessary. House lighting and particularly venue owned stage lighting should be extremely dim or completely off during the performance, in order for the full effect of the Sonic Impulse light show to be fully realized by the audience. Power supply - All of the approximately 18 instruments are daisy chained and plugged in via standard Edison connections. An extension chord and one to two Edison power boxes will be sufficient to provide power to all instruments.

Stage setup:
Sonic Impulse also travels with a team of dancers. The amount of dancers onstage varies according to venue, budget, and space. At minimum, two dancers will be utilized at any Sonic Impulse performance. Adequate space for a 3 foot by 3 foot dance platform for each dancer should be accounted for when plotting stage set up.
