Dark Star Orchestra performs with Look Solutions newest hazer.WAYNESBORO, PA--MusikFest, a non-stop, 10-day summer music festival, used Look Solutions Unique2 Hazer for performances by Dark Star Orchestra and Petula Clark at Lehigh University's Zoellner Arts Center in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.
Zoellner Arts Center acquired the Unique2 Hazer for its equipment inventory after lighting coordinator Liz Lammer saw it at the LDI trade show last October. "I really liked it and decided we had to have it," she recalls. "The old machine had an issue when you powered it down; it would continue to spit out fog or haze as it cooled down. The Unique2 actually stops hazing when you tell it to. Our old machine could only run for a certain amount of time, then it had to recharge. The Unique2 ran constantly both nights for about three hours each night. We are extremely happy with it. The haze itself also has a fuller look."
The Unique2 was deployed in similar applications for both Dark Star Orchestra, a cover band for The Grateful Dead, and pop icon Petula Clark. The system was used as a hazer to accent light-beam effects from VARI*LITE 1000s, ETC spots and PAR cans, so it was constantly on during the concerts. The VARI*LITEs were used as moving heads for the Dark Star show.
"The Unique2 was easy to use, quiet and provided a constant haze," says Lammer. "And when we needed to increase the haze output at a certain point, it was easy to adjust."
