VENUE 083


“This included putting bass bins in the seating, Mycro 8’s around the seating alcoves and running delays across the whole space to give the club an energy it didn’t have before,” said Dave. The peripheral sound system works well at Agni because time was spent to ensure it was delayed properly. It works well as an independent system during early evening when the venue is usually set up as a bar and lounge. Alex commented: “The Mycro 8’s and Mycro Subs are configured and time aligned to the main system to produce a full and accurate sound, with good coverage in all areas of the venue.” Dave opted for the same route as before (with Kitty Su), and remained with his sole manufacturer sound solution by selecting Void’s Infinite V2 amplifiers to power the system at Agni, and a Void Line Drive to look after the processing needs. Knowing The Park Hotel was keen to keep up to date with the latest trends and to entice people to the venue with technology Delhi has not seen before, MTI chose a very artistic lighting and visual design. Dave explained: “I wanted to give a bit of a different feel to the space really. I wanted to be able to change the mood of the space using colour and allow the whole space to move when the night starts getting going. The hotel is renowned for owner Priya Paul’s love of art so I wanted to something with a bit more vibe that would appeal artistically.” The solution to create this mood effect was to install 78 Chauvet COLORrail 10mm RGB LED linear wash effect battens. These have been installed in the bar top, as a boarder where the walls and ceiling meet, as well as surrounding the nine ceiling mounted plasma TV screens, which is another strikingly different feature within this design. The COLORrails feature tightly packed, evenly distributed LEDs so it is possible to formulate very fast colour mixing, fully indicative of Dave’s design. Dave continued: “During the day and early evening the LED softens the space with a nice glow again giving a different feel to what it was before and making the whole space work as one.” To add the visual element, nine Samsung 40 inch 400 MX-2 TVs were mounted on the ceiling and a further three on the wall behind the DJ booth. The screens are able to run fully customised imagery as well as advertising campaigns. The idea behind the design was to bring a new lease of life to Agni, but also set the venue up for future progression. Every time the video content is updated for the screens, it will provide a fresh look for the venue. “The screens were part of the more artistic design I wanted to achieve and again using colour as a way of moving people. The screens radiate colour and movement within the graphics, which

sync with the LED to create a moving colour experience throughout the whole space. The idea is to keep everyone connected to the dancefloor even when at the bar or sitting down. The screens on the wall can also be separated to run sports during the day which provides additional revenue,” said Dave. The operating system for the plasma screen is simply an iMac running Modul8 VJ software. This allows any VJ to use up to 10 different layers, and each one has its own settings, effects and medias, which can be mixed together, copied or reordered depending on the requirement of the screens on any given night. The software also offers VJs an advanced multiple output panel that equips them with the ability to produce flexible multiple projections. To complete the lighting and visual design at Agni, a single Laserworld 1.5W laser and an Antari Fazer 310 machine were installed to create a futuristic, effect filled space. These were supplied by Modern Stage Service. Dave commented: “I’m really happy to be working with Park hotels again. We have a great relationship with the owners and their design teams. The company are always open for ideas and innovation and have trust that we can deliver to their exacting standards but they also allow us the budget to innovate and experiment.” Once the refurbishment was complete, after being closed for just two weeks, Bebjeet said of the new and improved Agni: “We are very happy with MTI, they have been a great help and we hope and wish that they will produce more concepts for us in the future. Without them we don’t exist and without us they don’t exist, it’s a mutual thing. It’s all a chain, when the interlocks work properly, the chain works properly.”
