Jands Vista v2 For Andrea Bocelli Tour

Italian based lighting designer, Aldo Visentin is using his own Jands Vista S1 lighting console running the next generation Vista v2 software, plus two Vista M1 Wings, to control lighting for Italy’s most beloved tenor, Andrea Bocelli.
Aldo’s creative relationship with Bocelli started in 2006 and this tour’s natural innovative design contains lots of subtleties, with slow colour changes and no visible movement. It is operated completely ‘live’ every night using the Vista’s powerful visual interface and just a few pre-programmed presets. This allows Aldo the creative freedom to reflect the spirit of the evening in the lighting, and flow organically with the mood of the set.
Rather non-conventionally, a typical Bocelli tour will feature two or three shows a week over a three week period - often on different continents. Instead of touring a production lighting system, lighting equipment is normally hired locally for each concert.
At each show, Aldo has around 105 different moving lights to incorporate in to the design. Vista’s powerful fixture swapping allows him to quickly and accurately replace any previously programmed fixtures. He finds this to be incredibly fast and intuitive, and a real time saver.
Aldo needed a system that was both easily travelable and cost-effective, so that he always had the right tools to deliver his shows. He checks the Vista S1 into the plane hold, while the two Vista M1s and laptops come onboard as carry-on luggage. In this way he is able to use his travel time to work on upcoming shows while on the move.
On this tour, he most appreciated Vista’s livetime functionality. This allows him to set a time and then simply choose what he wants the fixtures to do – whether programmed or completely ad-hoc. “It’s really nice to have no creative restrictions when you are operating” he confirms, adding that he feels so comfortable with the overall ‘visual environment’ of the console.
He thinks the extensive range of Vista hardware options available is a great benefit, offering an “extremely flexible, powerful and very customisable solution for any application or situation, all running the same reliable software architecture.”
