EI’s Martin Atomic Scrollers debut on Tegan & Sara

Posted on Friday, January 16th, 2009

Canadian singer-songwriters and identical twins Tegan & Sara are an indie song-writing duo with a large following in Australia. Entertainment Installations recently supplied the lighting for their sold out show at the Enmore Theatre in Sydney.

The show was the debut gig for Entertainment Installations newest acquisition of Martin Atomic Scrollers. Jarred Hawke operated the lighting rig that consisted of twelve Martin MAC700, eight MAC250 Wash, four Atomic strobes, four Atomic Scrollers, a Unique Hazer, and four 4 Liters.

”We decided to purchase the Atomic Scrollers after having seen them on several tour riders for upcoming tours,” commented Neale Mace, managing director of Entertainment Installations. “We first used them on a dance music event and we were very happy with their ease-of-use and the effect they created.

For Tegan & Sarah the Atomic Scrollers were actually on the lighting spec.

“They are an exceptional effect and Jarred used them for some great “bang” effects as well as some subtle looks,” added Neale. “They certainly add another dimension to the already impressive Atomic Strobe.

“We own a number of Martin Atomic strobes and I can see us purchasing more units and adding more Atomic Colors to them as they are a great addition to our lighting hire inventory.”
