Newton Faulkner 2012

Newton Faulkner 2012Newton Faulkner’s first album, 2007’s Hand Built By Robots, was certified double-platinum in the UK and his 2012 album Write It On Your Skin debuted at number one on the UK album charts. Martin’s Lights has worked with Newton since that first album and has done a dozen tours with him in the UK, Europe and as far afield as Australia and New Zealand, as well as many festival appearances including Glastonbury, the V Festivals, T In The Park and the 2012 Olympics celebrations in London’s Hyde Park. In October 2012 Newton undertook a sold-out UK tour to promote the Write It On Your Skin album and once again Martin’s Lights supplied complete lighting production for the rehearsals and eighteen shows. The lighting design was based on a back truss which supported five Robe Colorspot 700E AT moving lights and a white cloth which dropped at the end of the show to reveal an LED starcloth. Two 3 metre high upstage truss towers supported eight Robe ROBIN LEDWash 600 moving lights and two Robe Colorspot 575AT moving lights. Six more Colorspot 575ATs were sat on flight cases onstage and Newton was front-lit with a pair of Source Four profiles. Finishing touches included three small mirror balls, a pair of Par 64 floorcans to throw shadows of Newton onto the white cloth, a pair of Par 64 LED lamps to colour tone the upright trusses, and three Par 16 green LED birdy lights underneath a custom transparent Perspex shelf inside Newton’s onstage globe where his ginger and honey tea was kept! The system was controlled by lighting designer/technician Martin Dudley on ChamSys MagicQ PC software running on a touchscreen laptop with a ChamSys Maxi Wing, and was ably looked after by technician Gareth Dean.
