New Illumination: recent projects

Yenz Nyholm

Yenz Nyholm - new illumination 2015 has been one of the most interesting years in our career. It started out with 3 hugely popular Marillion fan conventions, in Holland, UK and Canada. It was a multimedia extravaganza, incorporating lights, video, lasers and pyro. It was all designed and programmed by Yenz Nyholm, and run live on 2 Avolites Sapphire Touch & 1 TNP.

The rig was an entire Clay Paky rig, consisting of 24 700HPE spots, 4 HPE1500, 16 alpha wash, 28 sharpies and 22 alpha beam300. All supplied by Siyan LTD.

The video side consisted of 1 LED screen at the back of the stage as well as 60 M wide drape covering the side of the stage. All video and projection was supplied by XL video Laser came as always from ER production, and pyros and effects was from showeffects in Holland A live DVD will soon be available, but for now please see the Gallery for some truly stunning pictures.

The summer has been busy with festival appearances by Level42, Tom Bailey, Marillion and Howard Jones.

September will see more Level42 shows, inc 2 sold out shows at O2 Indigo in London, which will be filmed for future release, and will recreate the 2014 hugely successful Sirens tour. This will feature the co design of Steve Finch and Yenz Nyholm, with a full ROBE LED rig consisting of 28 ROBE100 LED beams, and 24 ROBE 600 LED wash as well as atomics, moles and sunstrips. The design was a trip back to old school of colours and par cans, created in a modern setting.
