Creating a canvas
Based next door to the famous Italia Conti Academy and having hosted endless comedy festivals, performing arts shows and music gigs, it was becoming more and more clear that The Landor Pub required a specific, tailored event area.
When the group decided to open an event space with its own small bar, they wanted to create a blank canvas that was suitable to host theatre, live music and other events. For the vast array of events they would be hosting, the team were in need of a discrete, unobtrusive sound system that also provided the required output level while also being easy to work with.
Setting the solution
“Using Apart Audio equipment, we focused on the separate areas of the space; the bar area and the event space, creating an impressive end result with a modest cost,” recalls Flipside Managing Director, James Cooper. “For the bar, we installed a pair of speakers for the perfect level of background music. This gave the option of playing its own localised music or feeding sound in from the main space for larger events.”
When taking on the event space, after discussing a number of options, Flipside chose a two-zone system, which comprised of four MASK6C speakers, one for each of the corners, finished with an impressive SUB2201 subwoofer for a deep, rounded sound. A zone controller then allowed the team to easily control the two different zones depending on the type of event. A local remote wall panel in the bar was the perfect finishing touch, allowing an easy way to play music through a phone on the bar speakers.
Impressed with the final solution, Alon Atzmon, Director at The Landor Pub says: “We first began working with Flipside when we were looking for a reliable, professional company to help improve areas of our pub. Flipside were recommended to us, and when we met they instantly seemed nice, trustworthy and professional. Plus, thanks to their after sales support everything ran smoothly.”
