At the JZ Festival in October 2014 we saw the new Firenze series in action and it definitely made one hell of a noise. Just one month after, the Firenze series returns to action in Hong Kong at the Clockenflap 2014 to provide the sound for another spectacular music festival.

 

"The Clockenflap organisers are always looking to push the limits of sound, art and music. They have big expectations of the equipment however, we are always confident when we suggest K-array, they love the flexibility of the concert and Firenze Series. It allows them to reach their ambitious imaginations."

James Mak, Sales Manager Sennheiser Hong Kong

 

The Clockenflap is a music and arts festival in its 7th year. It is three magic days in November where music and arts come together, creating an utterly mysterious and supremely infectious universe, all set against the city's luminous skyline. It’s an event that has grown considerably over the years and continues to defy definition.

 

K-array and Sennheiser Hong Kong are so proud to have been a part of the history of this event and allowed to push the limits of new technologies. This time around the Firenze Series featured for the festival on several stages with an equipment list that boasted 30 x KH8, 22 x KS8 12 x Unannounced Speakers from the Firenze Series and 60 KH15s. Oh wait! There is more: 9 x KH4, 6 x KS4, 23 x KMT12, 13 x KR402 and 10 KR202. The festival organisers wanted to create a serious sound for the audience, one which they would remember, the team at Sennheiser Hong Kong aimed to deliver that.

Monitors and speakers were piled high on six separate stages throughout the festival, which was held at the West Kowloon Cultural District Waterfront Promenade. The main stage which was fitted with 24 x KH8 and 16 x KS8 for big names including comedic rockers Tenacious D and golden oldies Kool & the Gang, who blasted hit songs Celebration and Ladies’ Night, festival-goers were treated to the sights and sounds of the 70s, complete with glittering outfits which lit up the stage like nothing else. 8 x KH15 on either side of the stage provided front fill and side fill along with 4 x KH4 for front fill, 4 x KO70 for side fill, 2 x KO40 for drum fill and 14 x KF12MT all used for monitoring.

 

"Most bands delivered buzzing pop rock and especially Rudimental who pushed deep club beats, these powerhouse artists needed sound systems that packed a punch! The stage was fully decked out with new and unannounced K-array speakers capable of producing whopping decibels."

A little further down the field was the Replay Stage, which welcomed The Vaccines and Rudimental. This stage was fitted with 12 of the new speakers from the Firenze series which will be launched in 2015. An additional 6 x KH15 for front fill, KH4 and KS4 for side fill. 6 x KF12MT for monitoring and 6 x KO70 for additional subs. With thousands raving about the event, K-array are doing their best to live up to their promise of "the pursuit of perfect sound" and proving their new audio innovation. Let’s see what next year brings?
