I went and saw KA last night in Vegas - what a technical triumph it is!! If you really want to see what you can do with half a billion dollars (that's with a "b") including the theatre construction, this is a good example.
I'm not going to blow it for those that intend seeing the show, but Nick and I feel particularly proud that at least 75% of the music was produced by Rene Dupere using our Virtual Instruments - Symphonic Orchestra (in beautiful surround sound), Stormdrum all over the place, Percussive Adventures 2, Bosendorfer, Rare Instruments etc. etc. - it was an EW/QL tour de force.
However, I was thinking afterwards how much we actually contributed to that show, and we didn't even get a credit in a page full of over 100 credits, not that they had any obligation to do so. This is a strange business we are in!
The specially designed theatre has 5000! speakers. 2000 of them are in every seat. All sounds are directed to 150 positions in the theatre. Rene and Martin (Creations Netza), who composed the music spent months placing the sounds in the theatre so they appeared where the performers were, or behind your head, whatever was appropriate.
The bar has been raised on threatrical production. You have to see this one!!
