For Nepathya’s concert in Wembley arena, DMX Productions were chosen to manage the show’s production and supplied a complete light, sound and video package. The main PA was EV’s XLC system and the lighting rig feature was based around Robe and Clay Paky fixtures. Panasonic 10k projectors were used for the live camera screens and the video wall was Martin LC.
Formed by three students studying in Kathmandu, Nepal in the early 1990s, Nepathya fuses folk melodies with new and exciting pop and rock tunes. The lighting designs were inspired by Nepathya’s 2012 Australian tour and certain elements were replicated for this show, including three upstage/downstage ‘finger’ trusses and a back LED screen wall. Components of the system were scaled up in size to appear suitably impressive on the Wembley stage.
Pointes have recently been added to the DMX inventory, and these were rigged on finger trusses, flanked each side by LED Washes. The Pointes were the show’s core fixtures and provided a dynamic focal point.
Robes and other moving and generic fixtures were programmed and run on the night using Avolites Sapphire Touch console. Video was triggered from a Tiger Touch link to a Hippotiser.
The show was only made possible with the help of Neal Allen, Tom Grant and Chris Hodson, all of whom worked closely on the project to deliver a first class show. Yenz Nyholm and Tom worked in tandem, operating and designing the lighting respectively for the show.
