Britannia Row (Britrow) Productions provided the live audio infrastructure for Chris Martin during his George Michael tribute performance at The BRIT Awards in February.
“Chris Martin was singing live while obviously George’s vocal was a recording of ‘A Different Corner’ but not a studio recording; this was a live take from one of his concerts on the Symphonica tour,” said Garry Bradshaw, sound engineer at Britannia Row.
“For me, hearing his voice again like that really raised the hairs on the back of my neck. Not surprisingly a lot of attention went into this performance.
“Myself and Dan Green for Chris Martin had half the desk each, I had the left side, three faders, one of the music which was recorded specially for this performance, one of George from the tour and a fader for those little bits of dialogue that were cut into the tribute,” said Bradshaw.
The desk, a Digico SD7, provided by Britannia Row Productions made up the entire live audio infrastructure.
Event production managers for The BRITS Awards, Kate Wright and Lisa Shenton, commented: “Britrow are extremely good at providing the support for all the elements of this show. The performing artists’ individual needs, the live event and the TV show.”
