Subterrâneos do Corpo - Technical Rider

Subterrâneos do Corpo

technical rider

1. Stage and set

The stage should be at least 8m wide and 7m deep (plus backstage and service area) and completely levelled.

The minimum height (fly bars) should be at least 6m.

The stage floor must be non reflective black. There should be a black backdrop hung on the last flybar and we will use a typical italian scene with legs and teasers.

2. Lights

The houselights should be controlable by DMX512. In addition to the usual houselights we will set up a kind of blinder with 1kW PC's (or something similar) in quantities according to the size of the venue.

Lighting material to be supplied by the venue:

  • 3 a 6 - PC (prismconvex) 1kW with barndoors (quantity according to the size of the venue, for the blinder effect)

  • 10 - profiles Robert Juliat 614SX

  • 1 Fresnel 1kW with barndoors

  • 4 dichroic ramps RJ Brabo (with ballast so they can work independently) or 8 flood Strand IRIS 1kW or similar with barndoors (we will need barndoors for the RJ Brabo as well).
    The ramps (or floods) will be set up inside our stage set and will need 4 dimmed circuits.
  • Filters and gels:
    4 x Lee197 for Robert Juliat 614SX
    4 x Lee202 for Robert Juliat 614SX
    2 x Lee201 for Robert Juliat 614SX
    4 x Lee156 for Robert Juliat Brabo (or 8 for IRIS)
    2 x Rosco184(cosmetic peach) for Robert Juliat Brabo (or 4 for IRIS)
    2 x Rosco189(cosmetic peach) for Robert Juliat Brabo (or 4 for IRIS)
    Rosco Cinegel #3006 for all PC's 1kW

18 dimmer channels dmx512 with linear response (we will use very low intensities and very long fades)
The channels for the blinder effect are allready included, but for larger venues we might need some channels extra.

dmx cable from the dimmers to the sound and lighting booth (male 3 pin used 1 - ground / 2 - positive / 3 - negative)

we will bring our own lighting desk with us

3. Sound

PA: a 4 point source system (not a typical sourround) each point granting full coverage of the audience (20Hz-20kHz @ 98dBa SPL) preserving 12dBu headroom thru the whole system.
we'll need 2 flown fullrange monitors (expect some high pressure low frequecy peaks), the foldback mix could be a mono sum of the 4 PA outputs.
1 professional DVD player with at least 4 discrete outputs (sound)
there should be a graphic EQ (1/3 octave - 31 bands) for each PA and foldback send and a small mixer to control the levels.

The system should be ready to be set up upon our arrival.

3. Sketches
