World Stage: Chrisye “DeKaDe” - In Concert
A look at live sound in Indonesia

Indonesian pop star Chrisye and a team of special guests and dancers recently performed at the Plenary Hall JCC in Jakarta, which was filled to its sold-out capacity of several thousand audience members.

The music and concert industry in Indonesia is booming, with line arrays such as Electro-Voice X-line and JBL VerTec used for several recent performances.

For Chrisye’s “DeKaDe” (Decade) concert, the sound company for the event, Sumber Ria, supplied EAW KF760 line arrays, with several consoles (DiGiCo D5 Live, Soundcraft Series Five, Crest VX) required for house, monitors as well as recording and broadcast. Sumber Ria notes that the D5 Live’s snapshot capability proved handy in the recording process.

Have a look at a portion of the equipment rider and personnel list supplied by the sound company.
