Sound Art Canada has purchased a Nexo Geo Tangent Array System, consisting of 14 GEO S805 5-degree array elements and two S830 30-degree array elements, plus four CD12 Controlled Directivity Sub-Bass units. The system is managed by two Nexo NX241 digital controllers and amplified by four Camco Vortex 6 digital amps.

Currently, Sound Art's new GEO System is on tour with the Shaolin Monks and the "Wheel of Life" (a martial arts theater event) in Eastern U.S.

According to co-director of Sound Art touring Jeff Berryman, "The system was originally conceived for 100 to 105dB applications: theatrical venues, clubs and small outdoor venues. But we got great behind-the-stage coverage from a single 15-element tangent array at a recent arena concert in Vancouver, a benefit that featured Sarah McLachlan, Bryan Adams, Jann Arden and the Barenaked Ladies. For that show, the GEO array was combined with larger line arrays from Electro-Voice. We were able to achieve a relatively seamless blend of all three systems, and many people remarked at the quantity and quality of sound from the GEO array."
