Art Basel Miami, which recently celebrated its 21st year in presenting a week of multiple concerts, musical performances, galleries, exhibitions and more supported by numerous sound reinforcement systems headed by DAS Audio loudspeakers.
The Chase Sapphire Event in South Beach, headlined by R&B artist Miguel as well as Becky G, saw Dynamic Event Productions of New York deploy 16 LARA powered cardioid cabinets joined by 12 LARA-SUB subwoofers, augmented with four AERO-20 systems for frontfill. Meanwhile, the Prestige Imports Showroom, an exhibition/art showcase that was curated by Grammy Award winner (and art patron) Swizz Beatz featured a performance by the artist reinforced by SARA-100 powered compact line arrays complemented by four SARA-SUBs supplied and supported by Miami-based PK Productions.
At the E11EVEN Miami club, the entertainment lineup included artists such as Diplo, Lil Wayne, Deadmau5 and Snoop Dogg, all amplified by the venue’s E11EVEN Sound by DAS Audio loudspeakers. Palm Tree crew also brought E11EVEN Sound to Casadonna Miami with the help of Miami-based production company Event Concierge Group. International DJ Peggy Gou performed through a system that included two ES-158 three-way systems and two ES-221 subwoofers, along with eight DAS Audio EVENT-26A cabinets, two EVENT-115A front-loaded subwoofers, and two EVENT-121A active rear-loaded subs.
Event Concierge Group also hosted production at Loan Depot Park for the Art, Beats & Lyrics event by Jack Daniels deploying the same system along with ACTION-M512A monitors for headlining hip-hop artist Raekwon of the Wu-Tang Clan.
“Miami Art Week and Art Basel are a big part of Miami culture and history, and the music has always been a big part of it,” says Dennis Rivadeneira, live sound engineer for the Chase Sapphire Event. “DAS Audio is a big part of what makes the music sound so good. Sound quality was one thing that needed to be perfect, and the DAS Audio system made that happen. It was punchy and clear, even under conditions that many other systems would have found challenging. The control package was simple and intuitive. Both the crews for Grammy-winning artists Miguel and Becky G raved about how simple it was to get the system really cooking. DAS Audio has always amazed me with their simple approach to great sound.
