LAMDA chooses ‘West End standard’ Digico console for new £28.2m facility25 July 2017
The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA) has chosen Digico to provide sound as part of the drama’s school £28.2m redevelopment.
Autograph Sales and Installations, which also provides training as part of the school’s technical arts degrees, supplied a Digico SD9T for students to train on – a model often seen in London’s West End.
“We are delighted to be training our students on the new Digico SD9T,” said LAMDA’s head of technical training, Rob Young. “These young people will go on to shape the future of the dramatic arts, and through LAMDA’s partnerships with companies like Autograph, we can ensure they have the very best preparation for successful and sustained careers in the industry.”
The 5,500m2 redevelopment includes a 200-seat theatre, a screen and audio suite, 10 rehearsal studios and full technical and wardrobe facilities.
“We welcome LAMDA students to Autograph each year to give them an insight into the world of digital mixing,” said Autograph’s Peppe Mallozzi. “Because Autograph almost exclusively uses Digico and the consoles have become the standard for West End theatre, it’s very helpful for the students to know how to use them.”
