FX Rentals provides recording package for final concert at Wembley Grand Hall

FX Rentals has provided a selection of recording equipment for a concert by Globus at the Wembley Conference Centre.
The package was being used to record this unusual project for DVD release.
Globus is a collective of producers, musicians, vocalists and writers who work for LA-based Immediate Music writing, performing and supplying trailer music for big budget feature films such as the Lord of the Rings, Spiderman 2, X-Men III and The Da Vinci Code. The one-off concert was to launch Epicon, a compiliation album of Globus rock/hybrid pieces which was played live featuring a 60-piece orchestra and 50-strong choir. The concert’s uniqueness was further highlighted as it was the last event to be held at Wembley’s Grand Hall, which is being demolished to make way for a new five-star hotel.
Yoav Goren, co-founder of Immediate Music, said: “Every time we write a new score for a trailer we are inundated by movie fans wanting to know if it is commercially available. We decided that since there is such a demand we would be foolish not to supply the fans with new versions of our music. We chose to launch in the UK as it is a far more influential market – the US music industry has a habit of following the innovative UK.”
FX was appointed by long-standing client and production company Transmedia742.net to provide the recording package, plus technical backup in the form of Matt Phillips from FX’s Pro Tools department. The equipment supplied consisted of two 72 input/output Pro Tools HD systems running on G5s, two Furman universal power supplies on each rig, 72 mic preamps including 24 Millenia, a pair of Genelec 1031a monitors and a 7060 sub bass unit, and a variety of mics including five AKG 414s, two Neumann KM184s, two B&K 4061s and three Sennheiser in ear monitors. American recording engineer Greg Townley also rented some extra mics to record the orchestra, including six Neumann U87s, a Neumann M149V and four STC 4038 ribbon mics.
