Vista L5 on tour with Secret Garden

Secret Garden

Lighting Designer, Trond Dybfest of Trondheim Lyd Lysverket recently chose a Jands Vista L5 console to control lighting for award‑winning neo‑classical duo, Secret Garden’s latest tour.

With over 3 million international album sales and a Eurovision Song Contest win under their belt, Secret Garden have been touring relentlessly for over 15 years, covering a huge portion of the globe.

The first time Trond tried a Vista he was immediately drawn to its powerful, simple operating system, which he found to be extremely intuitive. Since then, he has become a keen Vista user, specifying a range of Vista products across his busy schedule of tours and productions.

Trond chose the new, flagship Vista L5 console to control lighting and media on this tour knowing that the software’s simple, powerful and visual interface would provide him with the flexible, reliable and consistent control he needed.

For this tour there was no touring lighting rig, so Trond relied heavily on Vista’s powerful Fixture Swap capabilities, which allowed him to quickly and accurately swap programming between the wide selection of fixture types he knew he would encounter.

Trond explains “It was completely necessary that the Fixture Swap worked seamlessly… which it did… Combined with Vista’s powerful FX generator, I managed to create great looking shows with whatever equipment was available to me on the night.”

Trond comments that he especially likes the Vista’s Timeline functionality, which allows him to quickly fine tune every detail of his show, providing “endless opportunities to create extraordinary looks”.

Trond concludes that he “simply loves working on Vista consoles” and really appreciates the Vista L5’s 21 inch High‑Definition TFT screen, which made it incredibly easy for him to access everything clearly on the rig at any given moment.

The Vista L5 used on the tour was supplied by Norwegian Jands Vista dealer, Norsk Sceneteknikk.
