AV AV AV in 360 Degrees

These are your ingredients. Take the 3 x super electronic producers from Danish band AV AV AV. Place them on a circular stage in the middle of the venue. Have speakers hang in mid air in a 360 degree setup above the stage. Place earthquake-inducing bass bins on and under the stage. Let Denmark’s sound duo numero uno, Bjørn & Mikael work their audio wizardry. Let Denmark’s best light designer Jannik Jensen be in control of all light particles. And finally, fill the room with a crowd of 800 mad people.

What do you get? One of those rare events where everything is a labor of love, where the sum is much greater than the parts. You get AV AV AV doing a 360 degree concert at Vega. And I was super thrilled to be part of it.

It is a challenge to photograph a 360 concert! Obviously, things happen all around the stage in, well, three hundred and sixty degrees! I benefitted from having been part of the rehearsals and having found some spots I liked but I constantly found myself looking at what was happening thinking “oh damn now I wish I was standing there…and there…and there…and there…etc etc”.

I can try and wax on about the show but my words will come up way short. As do flat 2D images with a max view angle of about 90 degrees. You really had to be there for this one. It was a near-perfect blend of performance, of sound and vision. Here are a few of my attempts at cramming 360 degrees into a still image.

Anders reacts to the sub-bass beast for the first time. The bass bins are underneath the stage! Everything was shaking like in an earth quake, tables were vibrating across the stage, cables fell out of their sockets etc. Mad!

I love being part of the rehearsals. You can make graphic images like this as there is no one else in the room.

Jannik did this cool thing of having all the house lights on at the beginning and then kinda having them flicker, sort of disintegrate into the full dark concert experience like this.

I had to get one epic wide angle view of the whole room and form the rehearsals I knew this song had the lights I wanted. Then it is just a matter of finding my spot and nailing it!

I really wish one could take a still picture of the sub-bass in a mayhem picture like this.

For me, there is just no way to have too many moving head lights as long as you use them right. I am glad Jannik the light maestro agrees!
