The Kooks get silhouetted then revealed thanks to EK
West London-based Electro Kabuki user, Colour Sound Experiment Ltd, deployed its EK system as part of a bespoke touring lighting and effects package built and rigged for ‘alt rockers’ The Kooks, for the band’s recent The Best of… so Far tour. The tour closed with a high-profile gig at London’s Alexandra Palace, which required extra lighting production.
Among the clever bespoke designs for a tourable, quick-rig solution to get their own lights in and up-and-running every day, Colour Sound chose to rig an Electro Kabuki reveal to start the show in style. The EK modules were attached to the house front trusses at ‘Ali Pally’. This rig kept the band dramatically silhouetted by the light from six powerful Robe BMFL spots blasting through from the back truss, then revealed them on cue with the kabuki drop.
