tube catches the MIF17 Buzz

Audio specialist tube uk delivered sound systems to a diverse mix of over 30 shows, site specific installations and one-off performances in a variety of venues across the city throughout the 18-day Manchester International Festival 2017 (MIF17).

tube's Melvyn Coote oversaw all the projects, collaborating closely with festivals technical director Jack Thompson.

The tube project management team of Adam Taylor, John Redfern, Dan Steele and Melvyn ran the numerous jobs from a pre-production and planning aspect then a top team of 7 warehouse and logistics staff, headed up and orchestrated by Jamie Sharman, implemented the equipment preps and the hectic delivery schedules.

A further 15 - 20 regular freelance engineers and technicians implemented the installation, rigging and operating of the various shows and gigs.

The pace was relentless with tubes crew working 16-18 hour days for most of the period, so it was essential to have a team who could function well on minimal sleep and under serious pressure to deliver amazing service ¦ keeping good humoured throughout.

The whole team was fantastic, enthused Melvyn after a hugely successful and highly acclaimed festival that entertained and enthralled with a raft of invigorating new works. The passion, dedication and commitment by everyone has been incredible, commented Melvyn.

All the kit that tube owned was deployed, leaving a bare warehouse. It worked hard throughout the event for which the company supplied 80% of the audio requirements from full theatre productions to small idiosyncratic installations, from banging DJ systems to refined orchestral and spoken word PAs, most of which were unconventional and challenging, needing lateral thinking and creative implementation!

Equipment from a wide range of brands was featured, including d&b, Tannoy, Yamaha, Sennheiser, DPA, Crown, Crest, QLab and MAX.

There were many challenges. The advanced logistics of what needed to be where and when was a real brain-teaser, together with the scheduling and time-planning. This had to factor in transportation, rigs, de-rigs, preps and re-preps and on top of that, the different facilities on offer at the venues and what was needed for rigging and physical installations in the found spaces.

Venues ranged from regular theatres and concert halls to site specific gems like Mayfield depot, and incorporated everyday public locations like the elevator concourse between Selfridges and Marks & Spencer or Victoria Station, St Annes square, Whitworth Park and numerous others.

tube also supplied the PA for the Opening and Closing Ceremonies.

The OC What Is the City but the People? was staged in Piccadilly Gardens featuring a 200 foot long catwalk, traversed by a diversity of people representing all communities making Manchester the vibrant, colourful and friendly place it is local heroes, celebrities and ordinary people from all backgrounds.

A ground-stacked d&b V series PA was installed with M4 monitor wedges and two Yamaha QL5 consoles, one for FOH and one for monitors ¦ which ensured the large and exuberant crowds could hear the catwalk show soundtrack played live by music-maker and producer Graham Massey assisted by an unexpected mix of local musicians.

Ceremony was a world premiere by Turner-nominated artist Phil Collins, an amazing collage of two films to conclude 18 extraordinary days of art, passion, performance and engagement!

Part of the show incorporated a movie documenting the journey of a decommissioned Soviet-era statue of 19th century philosopher and radical thinker Fredrich Engels, which Collins acquired and has returned from the Ukraine to Manchester where he is now permanently installed in Tony Wilson Place back in the city that was his home for 20 years and shaped his most seminal ideas.

tube supplied a d&b PA & monitor systems, Yamaha control and Sennheiser IEM systems, to two stages in Tony Wilson Place in front of the contemporary theatre / film centre HOME ¦. Multiple RF and microwave links beamed audio, vision feeds and comms between this site and the nearby NCP Bridgewater Hall Car Park where another d&b V series system covered the large audience watching the proceedings on an impressive 100m sq LED screen.

For the full duration of MIF17 four separate sound systems were built in different venues at the main Festival Square hub in Albert Square just in front of Manchester Town Hall.

The Pavilion was a large tepee multi-purpose space with a lively programme primarily of DJ based performances ¦ which rocked till late.

The Pavilion Theatre was a 500 capacity live stage hosting an extensive range of bands who utilised a d&b Q series PA and Yamaha control, together with the facility to accommodate monitors and other rider extras as requested, complete with a standard wired mics package.

Another system was installed on the Outdoor Stage used for a range of presentations and showcases, mainly for local acts ¦. And the Glass House was a double decked, clear-skinned structure serving as corporate hospitality space at one end of the square, hired by various companies and organisations throughout the event, whose guests could catch the heartbeat of the festival.

Other highlights included Last and First Men, a one-off performance at Bridgewater Hall, Cotton Panic at Upper Campfield Market Hall and 10000 Gestures at Mayfield depot.

Last and First Men was a film and live score by Icelandic composer Jhann Jhannsson and narrated by Tilda Swinton, with cinematography by Sturla Brandth Grvlen. The BBC Philharmonic played live, conducted by Daniel Bjarnason.

The tube team utilised Bridgewater Halls house sound system as part of their left-centre-right speaker configuration the centre being used for the vocal narrative and a separate left/right d&b V series system for the orchestral and playback elements. A Yamaha CL5 desk fully loaded with 68 channels of inputs and 22 outputs - took care of the orchestra mix, with the BBC taking split feeds for broadcast.

It sounded awesome.

Another d&b V Series was installed in Upper Campfield Market Hall for the powerful and emotive Cotton Panic! devised by Jane Horrocks, Nick Vivian and the band Wrangler. An impelling medley of gig and gripping performance art unfolded the story of the Cotton Panic that devastated the north of England in 1861 ¦ as the US Civil War set in thousands of miles away. It also made the connection to todays textile industry, the influence of international trade deals and the far reaching potential of their consequences for everyday people, for the human beings who quite literally are the fabric of the industry.

A Yamaha CL5 (FOH) and a QL5 (Monitors) were supplied with d&b V series flyers and ground stacks. Monitors consisted of d&b M4 wedges and Sennheiser IEMs, with Sennheiser 5000 series hand-held and beltpack radio mics providing the main theatrical inputs.

The need was to have the clear visceral sung / spoken narrative audible above a growling, grooving sound track the task was fine-tuned beautifully by the tube team.

Across the other side of the city in Mayfield depot, the dilapidated charm of this derelict industrial space provided the perfect backdrop to 10000 Gestures, a hugely energetic immersive dance work created by one of Europes most daring choreographers, Boris Charmatz. The ensemble of 25 dancers performed literally 10,000 gestures joyous, melancholy, ephemeral every one unique. Some of them VERY loud!

The PA was another d&b V8 series system, with V-SUBS in ground stacked columns around the space where it became part of the visual set along with the striking steelwork and structural columns.

Control was a Yamaha QL1 and the design worked ideally well for the resonant and lively sonic space that is Mayfield.

To assist in presenting Susan Hefunas ToGather exhibition at The Whitworth Galley, a free public event was staged that invited local residents originally from faraway places to trace their individual paths through Whitworth Park. Their movements were echoed by dancers from Studio Wayne McGregor inspired by the emotions experienced by the migrants as they walk around their new hometowns.

To transmit background sound between the five performances taking place five times only on one sunny afternoon, tube installed 20 Sennheiser LSP500 wireless speakers around the park that created an audio ambience. Each speaker was surrounded by a sculpture that was part of the exhibition.

Around the performance space, a d&b Y7P system was installed with Y-SUBs and a QLab playback system, controlled via a Crest analogue desk.

These were just a few examples of a diverse performance schedule demanding a wide and inventive range of different sonic solutions!

Melvyn and the team are extremely proud to have been involved in such a massively successful event, MIF17 really captured the spirit and imagination of Manchester perfectly and embraced so many remarkable locations, opening new perspectives to all working on the event and those enjoying it as members of the public.

It was a truly awesome 18 days and we loved every minute of it the challenges, the brain-teasers, the chance to try new and distinctive designs and technical solutions. It was a pleasure working with Jack Thompson and his team and all the many talented artists, directors, creatives and producers who offered us the opportunities to help them deliver their work.
