The move sees Martin Audio reunite with hire director, Paul Timmins – part of a hugely experienced team that also includes MD Spencer Beard and commercial director, Alex Penn. They are joined by technical director, Simon Gladstone, operations director, Stefan Phillips and finance director, Ian Bidmead.
Driven by Timmins, who has enjoyed a long relationship with Martin Audio, 22live has confirmed a large investment in Martin Audio’s advanced control and array technology. This enabled them to make an immediate impact in 2022, supporting the Sigur Rós global tour – with the manufacturer’s Wavefront Precision system and TORUS scaled for arenas – and the Australian Pink Floyd Show UK, with Wavefront Precision and TORUS scaled for theatres up to small arenas.
Both bands have enjoyed a long relationship with Timmins, which looks set to continue under the new production company.
