Diablo Sound, a production company specialized in sound design, show control and large project management, has acquired Electric Workshop, expanding the capabilities of Diablo Sound into lighting and video design and rounding out its in-house production design services.
Electric Workshop is an entertainment company focusing upon lighting and video for live events, television and streaming events. Their milieu has encompassed everything from simple dry-hire rentals to full-service production design and management. Some of Electric Workshop’s more notable clients included Nike and Fremantle — part of the RTL Group.
As part of the acquisition, Diablo Sound has hired Electric Workshop’s owner Julien V. Elstob as their new Control Programmer & Entertainment Systems Designer. Elstob has valuable experience as a lighting and projection designer for corporate events, concerts, theater and dance and has also worked as a production manager/technical director on touring projects.
“I anticipate great things for 2022,” stated Drew Dalzell, president of Diablo Sound. “Adding Julien’s skills and company assets to our own will allow Diablo Sound to grow and take on even more robust, adventurous projects.”
