To recreate a lounge style ambience on the set of Belgian rock band Clouseau’s 30th anniversary tour, lighting director Luc Peumans designed a chandelier featuring 120 individually controlled light sources.
The founder of Belgian lighting company Painting with Light, Peumans operated the tour lighting for many dates personally, his first time on the road in 10 years.
“I wanted to keep the set uncomplicated and emphasise the directness of Clouseau,” says Peumans. “It’s all about their great connection with the audience which has always underlined their live shows, and letting 30 years of music speak for itself.”
He specified a Hog 4 console for the shows at venues including The Netherlands’ Amsterdam’s Koninklijk Theater Carre (cap. 1,750) and Muziekgebow Eindhoven (2,000), both Netherlands’, plus Antwerp’s De Roma (1,500) in Belgium, programming the show with fellow operator and Painting with Light colleague Paco Mispelters.
They used 120 Lucenti Pearl RGBW bulbs, which feature an intricate RGB LED ring plus a warm white ‘filament’ to create the chandelier, a product developed by Belgian light specialist eXplorentis and distributed by Face.
