KV2 bring satisfaction to The Rolling Stones’ Exhibitionism28 June 2016
Exhibitionism – the Rolling Stones exhibition – has invited audiences into the hedonistic rock’n’roll world of the legendary band with the help of KV2 Audio loudspeakers.
Set in London’s Saatchi Gallery, Exhibitionism takes visitors through the sprawling history of one of the worlds biggest bands via nine individually themed rooms ranging from an immersive and realistic reconstruction of their first shared flat to backstage and 3D surround sound concert experience.
Sound Designer Carolyn Downing picked 30 KV2 products from the passive ESD range and active EX range, which were deployed throughout all primary playback areas with 7 ESP 2000 amplifiers powering the ESD products.
Downing said: “The Rolling Stones’ story is incredibly multi-faceted, from humble blues beginnings to electrifying mega stadium gigs encompassing art, fashion and cinema influences in their immense body of work. This meant that I needed a loudspeaker manufacturer who could accommodate the range of story-telling opportunities that the sound design was required to fulfill.”
She added that the products provided the delicacy and warmth required for intimate speech playback during documentary content, while high SPLs packed a real punch but gave a pleasurable and invigorating experience for the performance content.
Dartford-based project and integration specialists Electrosonic did the installation.
