Liquid Light Lab is a visual expression of music. Rooted in old school psychedelic light shows, and brought into the 21st century. Based in NYC, since 2008.

Organic visuals and experimental light shows are created by hand, live in real time. Classic analog elements like colored oils and overhead projectors are blended with cutting edge digital imaging. Other psychedelic elements like video feedback, glitch, Lumia, and video manipulation are also incorporated.

LLL collaborates both live on stage, and in the studio with musicians, videographers, curators, public venues, and production houses across a variety of projects.

I also work on my own creations, author a light show history blog, and provide tools and instruction to other artists around the world.
