RG Jones once again provided a complete sound solution for regular clients Cottam Eilenberg (C+IB) at their Town Called Publicis event. 


Cottam Eilenberg, a relatively new production and creative company, have been working with RG Jones since their inception 2 years ago.

Town Called Publicis was an inspirational event held in an innocuous East London warehouse comprising of a 1000 capacity dance area, full size American street scene and an array of outdoor food areas.

“We installed a complete Martin Audio solution consisting of 2 hangs of MLA Mini with 2 DD6 flown delay speakers and 2 MLX Subs taking care of sub bass for the dance area”. Explains RG Jones engineer Laurence Jarrett.  “This configuration worked miracles producing a flawless result despite the very low offsite noise limit. Two more flown DD6s timed to the main PA covered the busy outdoor area at low level which was a nice touch."

The American Street Scene consisted of six shops, a bar, the street itself and a laundromat all requiring a separate ambient soundbed. Turning again to our stock of Martin Audio, we utilised 18 wall mounted DD6’s (flown and hidden in set) to create an atmospheric soundscape for the appropriate areas. A DiGiCo UB-MADI streamed ambient soundbeds from the composers MacBook. Keeping it DiGiCo with an SD11 and remote D-rack at FOH.

“The scalability and flexibility of the system proved itself in the face of all challenges”. Continued Laurence “plus VT and a live camera outside broadcast from the town during the night”.

All equipment and crew were entirely sourced from our extensive stock and 5 star in house crew.

"I was really pleased with the result, the integration of all the small systems not only sounded great but was also aesthetically pleasing and discreet” smiled Laurence.   The flown MLA mini worked exceptionally well in the space, minimising spill into the street scene behind using the hard avoid function. Everyone seemed to be having a good time and Kiss FM's Ricky and Melvin's headline set went down a treat."
