Ampire & Ampire High Density Pack Demo with Bobby Burnette of Wasted Creation

Some sounds and models featured were from the Ampire High-Density Pack expansion for Ampire.

StudioLive and Studio One at the Oscars… In Iceland!

As a part of the Academy Awards this year, the song “Húsavík” from Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga (which was nominated for the Best Music (Original Song) award) was featured as part of the pre-show event.

This breathtaking performance, set in Húsavík, Iceland (the same setting and filming location as the movie) featured Swedish pop star Molly Sandén, the original singer of the track, backed by a girls choir from the town of Húsavík. On top of that, the stage and performance were set on the actual docks of beautiful, mountain-swathed Húsavík, with full crew, rigging, lighting. The sound for the performance, including routing, playback, recording, and monitoring came courtesy of a StudioLive 24 Series III mixer and Studio One 5.  After four days of setup, the performance was finally recorded live the day before airing at the awards ceremony. Oh, and all of this took place outside… in 4°C weather—not counting for windchill.

– Big thanks to Trausti M. Ingólfsson who works for Tónabúðin, our distributor in Iceland, for giving us the report on this wonderful event.

Check out the StudioLive Series III mixer and Studio One 5 in action along with a couple of screenshots of the performance:
