File.23 Yamato Arts Culture Hall "Enchanting Stage Technology"
Miyuki Inoue (Magcal Editorial Department)
Great music and heart-shattering stories. Laughter, tears and emotions. My theory is that there is everything in the world on the stage.
The artist who creates such a stage space is really wonderful.
However, what makes the artist even more shining is because of the power of the technical staff such as lighting, sound, and operation of the stage mechanism. The backstage tour of the hall, where you can get a glimpse of that part, is popular.

What I paid attention to this time was the planning of the Yamato Arts Culture Hall, where you can go one step further and experience the stage technology for the whole day. The name is "Art management course "Enchanting stage technology".
It seems that even junior high school students and above can participate, but what can they do? With a simple question in mind, I went to Sirius, the Yamato City Cultural Creation Center, which holds a course.
First, compare the two pictures below.

The first is a photo of the stage surrounded by a black curtain. I think this scenery is familiar to people who go to see theater and dance.

In the second picture, the wall is a series of seats from the audience to the stage. This would be familiar to brass band members and people who like classical concerts.
Needless to say, both are the main halls of Yamato Arts and Culture Hall.
The block-shaped wall that surrounds the stage in the second photo is called an "acoustic reflector" and is installed to efficiently resonate the live music.
Don't overlook it.
Normally, it is split and stored on the stage, but when you see it up close, it is very huge and the total weight is about 58 tons! It takes more than 30 minutes to install all of this.
“This time, I'm hoping to experience the difference in sound with and without the echo board,” says Shimizu, the hall staff. The difference is clear, "If you experience it, you will definitely understand it."
You can see the difference... It's kind of “professional” and interesting.

Standing on the stage and looking up, it looks like this. You can see that the heavy sound board is hanging. To ensure safety, even during the installation work, even hall staff members rarely enter the hall.
This time, when you heard that you might be able to experience such a powerful work, you thought it was interesting!
Welcome to the fascinating world of stage technology!

This is a work space above the stage where the echo board is stored. It is located in a high position overlooking the stage, and many lighting devices and stage devices are also stored here.
There is a lot of work at such high places in the work related to the stage, and even a slight relaxation leads to a major accident. The tension of the staff is always constant during the work, so the moving staff are cool.
In this project, it seems that you can experience the so-called "preparation" to "bararashi" in one day while receiving guidance from such professionals in each field. This chance is rare!
This is the lighting control room. It is in a high position overlooking the stage behind the audience. Even if you visit the hall of Sirius many times, the scenery from here should feel fresh.

This is Mr. Ongaku's adjustment room. Nowadays, there are more and more cases where people are operating behind the seats, so there are many opportunities to see their work up close. The scenery with the latest equipment is very cool, but of course you shouldn't touch it.
However, in this lecture, you can touch the lighting and sound equipment.
We spoke with Mr. Kako Oizumi (right, Suntory Publicity Service Co., Ltd.), who is in charge of the business of the hall, and Kaname Shimizu (left, Sigma Communications Co., Ltd.), who is the chief of the business.
“I don't think that the fundamentals of professional work that supports the live stage will change significantly, no matter how much the technology of machinery such as sound, lighting, and stage progresses. What engineers consider and what they value I'm planning to do so, but I'm planning the concrete contents, but once I know the professional work that supports the stage, I think that I can have a different perspective and way of enjoying it. (Mr. Oizumi)
“The possibilities for the stage are endless. Of course, there are time and budget constraints, but if you can consult with “I want to do something like this!”, I would like to respond as much as possible. Based on what we did, let's think together and create a fun stage!” (Mr. Shimizu)
Whether you like watching the stage or want to stand on the stage.
First, take a step!
This event has ended.
