Kristof Van Mensel selects Astera for Scala & Kolacny Brothers
Kristof Van Mensel from Belgium-based lighting and visual design company TCF (The Creative Factory) is the long term lighting designer for the Scala & Kolacny Brothers women’s choir. He regularly incorporates Astera fixtures into their live show designs, especially the AX3.
“I ensconce them in the set and have also used AX3s on occasions as hand-held lighting effects for the artists”, says Van Mensel, whose association with Astera started about five years ago when Controllux became the Belgian distributor and contacted him to show the range of products. Now they are one of his key creative tools.
Van Mensel and TCF also designed lighting for the opening ceremony of a new market place shopping area in the Belgian city of Sint Truiden, a show featuring dancers and interactive water fountains, where he used AX3s to enhance the motion and flow of the dancers and the water.
AX3s also provided a solution for a tour with Belgian new wave band The Arch. More recently, Van Mensel has started using Astera Titan Tubes as artist floor packages onstage and for TV productions. He has also used Titan Tubes to illuminate the drum kit of drummer and e-drummer Michael Schack, among others. Since the pandemic, Van Mensel and his colleagues at TCF have been busy lighting live streams plus AR, VR and XR broadcast events.
