I started doing lights and decor in 1996 and I am still active today.
We organised squat parties and besides being a DJ I also took care of the spatial design and lights.
At that time I studied Architectional Design and the freedom and experimental nature of the scene was ‘the only way’ to go…
Nobody really influenced me if I am honest, we just started experimenting with everything that was laying around or we did find in the skip.
Main focus was experimental harsh electronics and in the last 10 years a band drops by once a year.
I focus on non-figurative themes and thre is ongoing research in mirror based effects and customizing my flock of overheads into Optikinetics concept projectors.
I use Optikinetics machinery, Liesegang overhead projectors, vintage Clay Paky Gobo projectors, Ektapro and Kodak slide projectors, Liesegang 6x6 slide projectors, Homebuild Sploda-domes for my OHP and Big format moire stations for my OHP.
At the very beginning it was only 1 Rank Aldis effect projector but today it is:
24 Liesgang OHP from 400W halogen to 575W discharge
Once at a big Techno festival I did host a ‘brain dance’ area.
People could sit down a reset there 'marinated minds'.
