Yesterday's News - 20 Years Ago20 Years Ago . . . LSi April 1995

"In the news, ETC was to end its arrangement with Arri (GB) Ltd under which Arri had successfully marketed ETC's lighting control products in Europe and most Asia. The arrangement would be replaced with a new international distribution structure . . ."

Yesterday's News - 10 Years Ago10 Years Ago . . . LSi April 2005

"Phil Ward discussed the subject of noise at work regulations and how they affected the live sound reinforcement at rock concerts . . . Steve Moles reported on the touring production for Natasha Bedingfield, which saw Dave Gibbon in the lighting designer's seat, and Anthony King at the FOH mixing position . . ."

ReadAudio File

Phil WardThis month: All That Jazz . . .

"At the Milano there's a carefully orchestrated speakeasy vibe, or perhaps the evocation of a decade or so later, after Prohibition but before Elvis - either way, it's the spirit of a time well before rock made electro-acoustics not only necessary and visible but also cool . . ."

ReadClassic Gear

Classic GearThis month: The Lil'DMXter

"It can be hard to recall now, nearly 30 years on, the fear with which many regarded DMX - the miracle of 512 dimmers down a single cable that had what looked suspiciously like audio connectors on the ends . . ."

ReadCrew Cuts

Crew CutsThis month: Lamp & Pencil's Robin Barton

Rigging CallThis month: Have Regulations Worked?

ReadVideo Matters

Richard CadenaThis month: Spreading the Canvas

""Projection isn't the only video-based medium that's escaping the tyranny of the flat rectangular prison. Video pixels have been busting out of their rigid boundaries and scattering into crowds of pixel-wearing people since at least 2010."


QandAThis month: Lee Baldock talks to visual designer Tupac Martir . . .

"By this time I'd met a lot of bands and became more and more involved with the lighting guys, watching them, talking to them, learning from them."
