13 hours drive from Manila to Legaspi Albay City to witness the Magayon Festival, especially the “Mutya ng Magayon 2012”. It was exhausting but we were very excited since we know that The Mutya show is the main event of the month. I have seen the preparation for this event and it was no joke. They needed to rehearse everything from the contestants blocking, the performers, the light and sound the video etc. It was like preparing for the The Miss Universe show and the pressure was all there. The Mutya show was held at the Albay Astrodome which accomodates nearly 5,000 seats and throw in another thousand for those who are standing, another thousand were not able to watch the show since it was already above the capacity.
We at Modular Display Pro: Light and Sound and Audio Evolution (an Albay local supplier) prepared for this event. For the event, we brought in our old and reliable 8 units ODY-PRO line array, 4 units ODY PRO L8 dual 18 subs, a dozen QHA power amps, ODY PRO monitor, Bardl BR 103 wireless mics, a PreSonus StudioLive 24.4.2 digital mixer, a BDS dual DVD play back system, 8 x 13 LED wall, 32 units PAR 64, 24 units Matrix LED wash, 10 units Weinas Beam 200 and a Weinas RGB laser light.
The sound was loud, clear and an earth shaker and the audience was WOWed by the lightings. The lights definitely complemented the beauty contestants. Light and sound definitely gave justice to “Mutya ng Magayon 2012”. We hope to return next year for another spectacular show.
