File.23 Yamato Arts and Culture Hall "Enchanting Stage Technology"
Miyuki Inoue (Magical Editor)

Great music and a story that shakes my heart. Laughter, tears and excitement. My opinion is that the whole world is on stage.
The artist who creates such a stage space is really wonderful.
But the artist can only shine even more with the help of technical staff, such as lighting, sound, and stage mechanism operation. The backstage tour of the hall, where you can get a glimpse of one end, is popular.

What we focused on this time was the Yamato Arts and Culture Hall, where we went a step further and experienced the stage technology for a full day. The name is "Art Management Course" Enchanting Stage Technology ".
It seems that if you are a junior high school student or more, even completely inexperienced people can participate, but what can you do? With a simple question in my heart, I went to Sirius, a Yamato city cultural creation base that holds lectures.

First, compare the following two photos.

The first is a photo of the stage surrounded by black curtains. People who go to see plays and dances are familiar with this landscape.

In the second picture, the wall extends from the audience seat to the stage. If you're a brass band member or a lover of classical concerts, this is a familiar look.

Needless to say, both are the main halls of the Yamato Arts and Culture Hall.
The block-shaped wall that surrounds the stage in the second photo is called an “acoustic reflector” and is set up to make the sound of live performances sound more efficiently.
Hmmm ... don't listen to me.
It is usually divided and stored on the stage, but it's huge when you see it up close, and the total weight is about 58 tons! It takes more than 30 minutes to install all of this.
"This time, I'd like you to experience the difference in the sound of the sound with and without the soundboard," says staff staff Shimizu. The difference is obvious: "If you experience it, even amateurs will definitely know."
I can tell the difference ... it's kind of "professional" and interesting.

Standing on the stage and looking up, this is the scenery. You can see that a heavy reverberation board is hanging. To ensure safety, it is said that even during the installation, even the hall staff will hardly enter the hall.

This time, you might be able to experience such a powerful work ... and you thought "It looks interesting"!
Welcome to the fascinating world of stage technology!

This is the work space above the stage where the soundboard is stored. It is located high above the stage, and many lighting and stage equipment are stored here.
Many of the work on the stage involves working in such high places, and even a slight relaxation can lead to a major accident. During work, the tension is always continual, so the staff that moves fast is cool.

In this project, they will be able to spend one day experiencing everything from setting up the stage to cleaning up, so-called “preparation” to “balashi”, while receiving guidance from professionals in such fields. Such a chance is rare!

This is the lighting room for lighting. It is in a high position overlooking the stage behind the audience seats. Even if you visit Sirius Hall many times, the scenery you see from here should feel fresh.

This is the sound control room. In recent years, the number of cases where the player has to operate behind the seats has increased, so there are many opportunities to see the work up close. The scenery where the latest equipment is lined up is very cool, but of course you should not touch it without permission.
But in this lesson, you can get in touch with lighting and sound equipment.

We spoke with Kako Oizumi, the person in charge of the hall's business (right, Suntory Publicity Service Co., Ltd.), and Kazu Shimizu, the chief of the hall (left, Sigma Communications Co., Ltd.)

"No matter how advanced the technology of machines such as sound, lighting and the stage is, the fundamentals of the professional work that supports the live stage will not change much. What engineers think and what values are important I'm planning to have you know what it's like. I'm planning the specifics, but knowing the professional work that supports the stage will give you a different perspective and way of enjoying it. " (Mr. Oizumi)

"The possibilities of the stage are endless. There are of course time and budget constraints, but I would like to respond to you as much as possible if you can consult with me" I want to do this! " Let's think together and create a fun stage based on what we have done! "(Mr. Shimizu)

Some people like to watch the stage, others want to stand on the stage.
First, take a step!
