Sunday in the Park with George
garnered positive reviews during its run and was particularly praised for its superb band, its thoughtful orchestration and Marcello Lo Ricco’s crisp sound design. Lo Ricco has also recently worked on shows such as Les Misérables
, Jekyll & Hyde and Kinky Boots
(National Theatre, Melbourne), We Will Rock You and Strictly Ballroom
(Princess Theatre, Tasmania) and Australian written musical theatre shows such as NED – A New Musical
(Ulumbarra Theatre, Bendigo), Flowerchildren – The Mamas & Papas Story
(Comedy Theatre, Melbourne) and PARIS – A Rock Odyssey
(Melbourne Recital Centre). As an equipment hire and production services company, LSS Productions also handles projects for educational institutions (including primary, secondary, universities and performing arts schools), performance venues and corporate business.
Over the last 10 years LSS Productions has built up quite a stock of DPA microphones including headsets, lavaliers, 4099 Instrument Microphones
and some 4091
microphones which it uses for measurement purposes and to tune and align speaker systems.
“When I first started using DPA what I liked was the sound quality of the microphones, which was a noticeable improvement on what we had been using previously,” Lo Ricco explains. “They sound natural with a nice bright top end which isn’t harsh sounding. The Microdot adaptors are reliable and we use a few different types to match our Sennheiser and Shure radio system models. The new 6066
Headsets are being used with our Shure Axient Digital radio systems and I’ve been very happy with their performance. I’m keen to add some smaller lavaliers to our inventory so I will now be looking at the other products in the new 6000 Series.”
