British Sound Company Provides Sounds for Fuse-In Detroit
Detroit, MI â€“ May 26, 2005- The music world and the city of Detroit are eagerly awaiting the 2005 Fuse-In Detroit. With the addition of many world known musicians, the festival is also bringing in one of the worldâ€™s most renowned sound systems. Funktion One, a British based company, will supply the sounds for this yearâ€™s festival.
Funktion One has earned an enviable reputation for its unconventional, uncompromising loudspeaker system designs. Their design ethic places ultimate importance on sonic accuracy particularly in terms of lack of distortion and delivery of astonishing transient fidelity. Low-mids are dry and defined; mid is clear; and high frequencies are transparent. Combining this with their tight, solid bass and smooth upper-mids gives an enlightening experience.
Funktion One is the brainchild of sound gurus Tony Andrews and John Newsham. Tony comments: â€œWe understand sound to be the most important of our senses and in fact, the root of the structure of the entire Universe. As such, we try to pay the amazing acuity of human hearing the respect it deserves by providing products that deliver as much resolution and detail as is possible. We also pay considerable attention to the emotional effect of not just music, but the sound itself, what you might call its 'quality'. In a world where everything is 'dumbing down' and finesse and subtlety are rapidly disappearing, it is a source of pride to us that we are continually going in the opposite direction, expanding the envelope. On a spiritual level, good music and good sound has the effect of opening peoples' minds and deepening their consciousness which can only be good for the planet.â€
Last year through Chicago based rental and contracting company Sound Investment, Funktion One showcased their sounds at the Fuse-In Detroit Underground Stage. Director Kevin Saunderson was so impressed by the sound on this stage, he asked the Funktion One / Sound Investment team to come back and deliver their sounds to three of the four stages at this yearâ€™s festival. â€œI was so enthralled by their sound,â€ said Saunderson. â€œ I had to have them involved again, especially with Richie Hawtin headlining the Underground Stage.â€
Since the birth of Funktion One in 1992, the company has serviced the concert, club and theatre world with mind-boggling sound systems. Funktion One has an extensive resume including providing systems for clubs in New York, Miami, Las Vegas, Moscow, Tokyo, Jakarta, London and Ibiza, just to name a few. They have also done tours for accredited artists such as Jamiroquai, Massive Attack, and the Chemical Brothers. Their resume doesnâ€™t stop there; Funktion One has won the 2004 Best PA Manufacturer by the DJ T-Scan Awards and the 2003 BEDA Production of the Year Award for the Funktion One Dance Stack.
