Switzerland’s The Goetheanum invests in Allen & Heath iLive systems

The Goetheanum, the Switzerland-based global HQ for the Anthroposophical Movement, has upgraded its sound system with the purchase of two Allen & Heath iLive digital mixing consoles.

Located in Dornach, near Basel, the iconic building was designed by Rudolf Steiner and dedicated to Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, who founded the philosophy of anthroposophy.

An iLive system made up of two iDR-32 MixRacks configured in DualRack mode with an iLive-T80 Surface in the control room has been installed in the main 1000-seat auditorium. Meanwhile, a smaller iDR-16 MixRack has been purchased as a portable system, which can be used with a PL-10 remote controller in the venue’s smaller lecture and conference theatres, or added via the network for additional I/O duties in the main auditorium.

There is also a gallery and lecture spaces, along with a library, a bookstore, and administrative spaces for the Anthroposophical Society, while neighbouring buildings house the Society’s research and educational facilities.

The Goetheanum hosts performances by its in-house artistic community, including the eurythmy dance troupes, as well as visiting performers from across the globe. There are also conferences focusing on themes of general interest several times a year, and there are specialist conferences for teachers, farmers, doctors, therapists, and other professions held regularly.
