P & P Lightshow Performance

 
 

P & P Lightshow Performance was formed in Northern Germany during 2005 and the name is from my initials.

In 1976 i attented a concert with Status Quo, Curved Air and Nektar. Nektar projected a lightshow on a big sail. I was suddenly infected by viewing this concert.

I made small shows at parties with only a torch, a prism and some glass objects but it was great. I did that several times for about 2 years and after that I forgot the thing.

In the year 2000 I saw a brochure with Optikinetics Solar projectors and in 2005 I bought my first Opti Solar 250 and some Oilwheels and cassettes. Two Kindermann Slide projectors and a dissolve unit from Simda completed my small equipment range. 3 more Opti Solar followed, used ones from Ebay.

I fell in love with the slide machines and the effect of dissolving. At that time I did not need more brightness than 250 watt Halogen, because I made lightshows in small venues.

I looked what other Lighshows did and loved great art shows like Single Wing Turquoise Bird but I was aware that being a oneman show I had to develop my own style.

I have worked with the following bands over the years:

The Brew, Randy Hansen, Sienna Root, The Flying Eyes, Wucan, Love Machine, Knall, Aphodyl, Bröselmaschine, Jutta Weinhold Acoustic Randale, Wedge, MAIDA VALE, Swedish Death Candy, Gomer Pyle, Hodja, Welcome inside the Brain, Causa Sui, Zen Trip, Le Mur, Crystal Palace, The Spacelords, Wolf People, Silverleaf and many more

So far I have not cooperated with other Light Shows but I plan to do so in the future.

P & P Lightshow Performance I run alone and my wife cares for taking pictures and does the financial things. She gives me very good advice about the shows.

I construct and build my rigs myself. This was the first performance with the new rig. Made from construction metal profiles and strong plywood. It is a module construction for a small table and a big one. The small one takes 5, the big one upto 9 projectors.

The table consists of 6 parts, 4 telescopic legs from 100 to 180 cm and 2 parts to be connected to a tabletop.
Easy and quick assemblimg and transporting in my small car.

When supporting a very nice party with progressive music from the 70s from LPS somebody told me it was so wonderfull that I projected several hundred slides and especially one slide with the pattern his girlfriend had bought for the party as hippiedress. Others told me that I made a timetunnel for them with my lightshow and they felt like being 17 again.

After the lightshow for Randy Hansen a rather old man came to my lightrig and told me the lightshow was wonderful. He had worked as an optician and asked what computers I use for the show. I showed him my hands and told him these 10 fingers are my computers I work totally analogue. He wouldn`t believe it but I showed him.

I started with 2 Optikinetics Solar 250 and 2 Kindermann slide projectors. This was the only lightshow equipment I could afford at that time and it was enough to start learning by doing.

When concerts I worked for got bigger I needed more brightness and I changed to Optikinetics Gobopro Projectors woth 250 watt metall Halide lamps.

Nowadays I use Optikinetcs Gobopro FX LED with 75 watt and with 120 watt LED. Very bright projectors with 3.000 and 8.000 Lumen. I changed to bigger slides 6 * 6 medium format and 6 * 7 Ideal format.

My projectors are Götschmann G 67 P with 400 watt Halogen and 6.000 Lumen, brighter compared to an Optikinetics K4.

I use 4 Götschmann and dissolve by hand. In combination with the big format slides they are very good and highly reliable. Never failed me.

I also use prisms with handmade fixtures to be used on my slide machines and handmade wheels for the Opti projectors. I build lazy susans as a stand for my slide machines to be able to rotate them at a certain degree to let images move by hand on the screen.

In total I now have 9 projectors but started with 4.

It was very important for me to go my individual way. I did not want to use only standard items you can buy. I love to morph images by dissolving with 3 slide projectors on the same screen.

I add a link to a report of a lightshow in Dortmund at a church in 2019.
