Morpheus Lights is proud to have been chosen as the lighting vendor for legendary musician Ringo Starr on his summer 2012 US tour.
Morpheus is providing personnel and equipment for the project. Veteran lighting designer Jeff Ravitz of Intensity Advisors has chosen Wildsun 500C LED fixtures by Ayrton, along with fixtures by Morpheus, Vari*Lite, Color Kinetics, Altman, and ProCan, all pre-rigged in Morpheus Flip-Box truss. Dimming by ETC, power by Motion Labs, data by Fleenor and front end by High End Systems round out the tour package.
Asked for comment on the performance of the new Ayrton LED fixtures, Mr. Ravitz says “The Wildsun 500C gives the Ringo Starr show a base of strong, intense color. I love the natural warmth of incandescent sources, and that is not lost using the Wildsuns. Also, we can reach far into the blue side of the spectrum as we never could before. Sleek, modern, fast, and capable of interesting effects without exaggerated visual pixilation; they also fade and bump in a way that allows incredibly elegant and crisp cueing. With less weight and power consumption in a compact fixture that mounts comfortably in our truss system, they are a welcome addition to our tour package.”
