LOS ANGELES – Chaos Visual Productions is on the road with Alicia Keys' 2010 Freedom tour, which is promoting her 2009 album release, The Element of Freedom with tour stops in North America and Europe this spring. Chaos is providing an LED system, which consists of 390 tiles of Winvision 18.75mm. There are nine different LED screens, flown by cable winches on nine lighting headers, under three lighting trusses. The screens begin the show on the stage deck and are used to reveal her, her band and then her set.

 

A review in the Los Angeles Times of Keys' show at the Staples Center noted the effective use of the background visuals at times. "Watching Keys jam to ‘Karma' in front of a collage of images depicting the stock market crash put new emphasis on her lyrics: ‘What goes around, comes around / What goes up, must come down / Now who's crying, desiring to come back.'"

 

The content came from four Pandora's boxes, and the content and I-Mag were managed by a Vista Spyder and triggered by a grandMA console. There were two 12k Barco projectors for the two side screens, three HD cameras and two robo cams.

 

"This Baz Halpin design, with content by Olivier Goulet of Geodezik Design, has created one those shows that on face value, appears so simple, and yet when the show starts, a complexity of thought and vision is just stunning," said John Wiseman, president of Chaos Visual. "Being able to work with Omar Abderrahman and showcase our commitment to one of the best in the business is another exciting chapter in Chaos' growth. We are blessed to have them entrust us to deliver their vision."

 

Touring of behalf of Chaos is crew chief Wayne Boehning, EIC Seth Sharpless, Pandora/Spyder programmer Philipp Schauer, LED technicians Tyler Munson and L. Sidney Ptah and projectionist/camera op Nathan Fountain.
