Bangalore, India (April 5, 2022) - [De] - The Indian Music Experience Museum (IME), supported by Brigade Group, has chosen leading sound solution provider QSC to fully equip its performance theatre at the museum with a TouchMix-16 Compact Digital Mixer, K.2 Series Active Loudspeakers as mains and CP Series Compact Powered Loudspeakers for stage monitors. The upgrade is in line with IME’s philosophy to help performance artists truly enjoy the process of creating music and its vision of not just making music more accessible and inclusive for all, but also making it a memorable experience.
Musicians can now not only perform but also record compositions in this soundproof intimate theatre space, which is now available for both half and full-day rentals. The multi-purpose theatre, which can accommodate up to 100 audience members, is ideally suited for intimate performances, classical music concerts and unplugged sessions.
“With a well-equipped yet intimate performance theatre, we look forward to supporting independent musicians by providing a space for creating music and sharing with a community of music lovers,” says Manasi Prasad, Director of the Indian Music Experience Museum. “The IME has already become a hub of music in the city, and with the installation of the powerful sound system from QSC, we hope to further grow Bangalore's pre-eminent position as the live music destination of the country."
“The IME Performance Theatre is a critical application area where the performance artists require a flawless, clear, and consistent audio,” explains Raghunandan Rao, Assistant Manager – Sales, QSC. “The Intrinsic Correction™ feature & DMT™ Technology in the QSC loudspeakers provide even distribution of critical high, mid, and low frequencies in the performance hall which helped provide the desired output coverage. In addition, the TouchMix digital mixer makes effortless achievement in expected output levels/ EQs as per the artist’s and mix engineer’s requirements.”
Speaking about the partnership, Rajesh Mittal, Managing Director, QSC says, "QSC encourages the artist community and works towards providing them with solutions and support to empower them to confidently create impactful connections and memorable experiences. The new IME installation is a great example of that same vision.”
Among the first to use the space was the metal band Inner Sanctum who recorded a performance for the TouchMix Sessions online video series. Reflecting on their experience, Chintan, lead guitarist, Inner Sanctum says, "It was an absolute pleasure working with QSC and the Indian Music Experience on the TouchMix Sessions. QSC is a company we’ve respected ever since our inception because their products elevate our sound and bring out the much-needed clarity in metal music. This coupled with the amazing IME museum made for the ideal venue. Can’t wait to do this again."
