Yesterday's News - 20 Years Ago20 Years Ago . . . LSi August 1994

"Our news noted the end of several eras. Mark Fisher and Jonathan Park's hugely successful concert design partnership was to split: their final joint project, the Rolling Stones' Voodoo Lounge tour, kicked off this month in Washington DC. Meanwhile, Squire Light & Sound had gone into liquidation: a long-standing name in the UK industry, Squire's had been "a proving ground for many . . . who cut their teeth at the company.""

"Our cover showed Sarah Rushton-Read's moody shot of singer Anthony Kiedis emblazoned across XL Video's Barco LED screen at the Red Hot Chili Peppers' Hyde Park concerts this summer. Inside, we spoke to the team behind the show, including RHCP's LD Scott Holthaus, video and set designer Grier Govorko and sound engineer Dave 'Rat' Levine - along with Clear Channel's John Probyn, XL Video's Des Fallon, Britannia Row Productions' Roly Oliver and Star Events Group's Roger Barrett.

Phil WardThis month: Mixing It Up

"Not 'trading off' but applying know-how from one to another, bolstering weaknesses and exploiting strengths, putting a bit of 'large' into 'mid', a bit more 'broadcast' into 'large' - and so on. Plus, and here's the tricky bit, conserving brand equity at every step . . ."

ReadClassic Gear

Classic GearThis month: Donmar Reference Manual

"Does a piece of classic gear actually have to be a piece of gear? Good question. We've had examples in the past that aren't, but they've been classics in their own ways, explaining lighting or documenting its history. But a mere collection of information about gear? I'd argue yes. There's a modern term for this: meta-data - data about data. So perhaps this time we're featuring a meta-classic, a classic about classics . . ."

Crew CutsThis month: Stage manager Jem Melluish

"I started life as a money broker, then went straight into hair consultancy, followed by a stint as an advertising executive and then the obvious move to local crew at the Churchill Theatre. From there, the wonders of theatre led me directly into conference set building, before starting work with CC-Lab who put me on the path to music-based event."

"The shocked face of the driver is a picture I remember to this day. He knew there was only one 961 each day, but suddenly before him was this ghostly apparition of his own coach, full of passengers lit by a strange blue light, which was then swallowed up by the mist . . ."

EvernoteThis month: Word Lens

"Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic," the distinguished writer Arthur C. Clarke once said. The technological marvels now surrounding us make it easy to take that magic for granted; it's hard for something new to really surprise us. Word Lens is magical enough to do just that."

ReadiPix Db1: A Glimpse of the Future?

"It immediately seems packed with possibilities. Concert lighting, of course, patterns of light moving in the air. But also as a tool for stage or film lighting, perhaps genuinely providing the tool to fulfil the promise of being able to paint a stage with light, still or animated."
