I got into Lightshows because to start with actually Iwanted a lavalamp, but couldn't afford one.
Tried to make one myself with the junk in my storage, ended up making a lightshow with an old overheadprojector, sunfloweroil and amongst others candydye and fakeblood.
The goal was still to be entertained without doing anything myself.
That's why our shows have always predominately been very slow. Jeroen joined me when he saw the poor quality of my recordings and perfected it.
Later on we digitalized our methpd by building a Liquid Light Box.
Who was your main influence, if any?
There wasn't any. We started experimenting without to much knowledge and kept on doing that. Somehow we never tried anything someone else did, and sticked to our own style.

Can you share any amusing Lightshow related stories that wont land you in Court?
Every show is a small roadtrip to us, as we always travel by Liquid Light Bus, and overnight in it. One time after a show in Holland we searched in the dark really long for a good place to stall our bedroom. We found some place, threw our liquid light gear out on the grass and mafe our bed. At 6:00 we were rudely woken by an angry farmer who's land we just slept on. Asked us kindly to leave his premiss, or the police would force us.
What equipment you started out using, why you used it and what you changed to?
Started with an old overhaed projector. Later on build our own Liquid Light Box, so that the camera can catch the fluids perfectly.
