The Best Of Armin Only
The one, the only, the totally awesome Armin van Buuren played two amazing gigs at Amsterdam ArenA as ‘The Best of Armin Only’. Armin’s largest solo-show to date in his home country, the Netherlands, additionally marked 20 years of an incredible career as a DJ and creative music producer. It was the first time a DJ has staged a solo show at this venue.
A VISUAL EXTRAVAGANZA
Creating an equally awesome lighting and visual design for the occasion were theatre designer Marc Heinz and André Beekmans of The Art of Light, who united the worlds of opera, drama and dance in a visual extravaganza to match the energy and diversity of the performance.
All lighting was controlled from two GrandMA2 full size consoles (fully backed up) operated by André and Armin’s long-time lighting director and operator on the road, Michael Seeverens – a mix of timecoded and manually triggered cues for the best of all worlds.
A FOUR-HOUR ACTION PACKET SET
The challenge was creating all the epic crowd-pleasing trance and dance looks over a four hour period and balancing these with the more precise and crafted lighting required for some of the soloists and aerial pieces. This is where the synergy between Marc and André works so well, uniting and crossing over two different base disciplines of lighting in this highly charged ‘live’ atmosphere. The four-hour, action packet set simply flew by.
The Best of Armin Only: the best example for a next level light show and the ultimate experience.
