I starting in 1982, transforming some old slide projectors for private parties and also merchandising sales on concerts and festivals. One day the organizers asked me to put my lights on the stage.
I did lots of Techno/House events, often I used my projectors to decorate the whole space not just the stage which was often overcharged with automatic lights, so often I decorated castles and other buildings in or outside to give move and colors to the whole place.
I have worked with Hilight Tribe, Tav Falco & The Panther Burns, Big Brother & The Holding Company and worked at these Clubs/Locations:
Borealis Astropolis, Archi Crysalid, Cyberdome, Med In, Ma Galaxy Of Sound, Earth In Trance, Dragon Force, Dragonbal, Scream Bande Sonore, Cyberspace, Happyland Peace Nation, Party Zone, Robots Dream, Maoris Party, Sfr Trance, Body Express, Magic Garden, The One Mutations, La Fiesta Del Sud, Friche Belle De Mai, Electrojuicebox, Manoa Beach, Les Plages Sonores, Biomix, Clin D'oreille, Trancegoa, Le Cun, Sweet Sofa, Courants D'air La Sala Del Cel, Le Rex, Le Bikini, Le Roxstore, La Villa Rouge, Le Souleil Le Contact, Le Nautilus, Le Pulp, Le Spartacus.
Plus lots of other bands and DJ's, but almost I get hired by organizers of events, I never was hired for a band tour or something like this, sometimes for one date with one or more bands.
I've cooperated with lots of different VJs (Android Lightshow, V-Form, X-Ray, the Hybrid project,) different lasershows, also with lots of different Light and Sound companies.
Psycholights is still operational, there are periods I had lots of dates, others quite dead or nearly, at the moment dead because of Coronavirus.
For equipment I started at the beginning using second hand slide projectors, later I changed to Optikinetics Solar 250 which are better optics, better brightness etc.
There are 17 Optikinetics Solar 250's, 3 Simda Slide Projectors, 2 Overheads and recently I started to try VJ'ing but not again perfect enough...
I am active in France, Spain and Portugal.
