Beartooth/Motionless in White - ‘Diseased and Disguised’ co-headline tour 2019

Color creates a language all its own. Cameron Birchill offered living proof of this in his work for Beartooth on the metal band’s national co-headline ‘Diseased and Disguised’ tour with Motionless in White, which ended January 30, 2020 in Fort Lauderdale and featured a collection of Chauvet Professional Rogue R2 Wash fixtures from Squeek Lights.


For many of the songs in his 60 minute show, Birchill used orange as his primary color and accented it with whites. When the band played songs from previous albums, he turned to different palettes, such as deep blues, greens and cyans. During some of the high impact songs, the lighting moved toward what Birchill calls “more hostile looks,” with primary reds accented with yellows.


In addition to deftly managing colors, Birchill relied on backlighting and silhouetting to reflect his client’s raw, edgy sound. “I like to go to backlights and silhouette,” he says. “It creates this ominous look and adds a sense of mystery to the stage, both of which fit the essence of Beartooth’s sound.”


Along with its six Rogue R2 Wash fixtures, Birchill’s rig included six Chauvet DJ Shocker panels, which were hung on four-foot pipe and base below the drum riser. These fixtures were used to set the mood during the build up to the band’s performance of their title song.


During the ‘Diseased and Disguised’ tour, Beartooth and Motionless in White alternated opening for one another. “I can’t say enough good things about Mike Null, Motionless in White’s lighting designer and the entire crew for them and Beartooth,” says Birchill. “I am Beartooth’s Tour Manager, in addition to the LD, and sometimes things got crazy, at which point Mike always covered for me during set up and tear down. The people I toured with and the people at Squeek Lights really made this a great experience.”
