Light Talk with The Lumen Brothers

LIGHT TALK is a place where lighting designers can feel free to express what really annoys them about the industry, lighting education, and the art of stage lighting design. Inspired by the beloved NPR radio show, "CAR TALK", LIGHT TALK features the musings and rantings of David Jacques, Stan Kaye, and Steve Woods. These three designers have been lighting the stages of the world for many, many decades. Burnt out and abused by the industry and the insanity of the profession, Stan, Steve, and David have escaped to the hallowed halls of academia where they wildly and fearlessly pontificate to innocent students of the art. LIGHT TALK takes these rantings to the world. Look for our weekly Pod Cast discussing the issues of our time. Nothing is Taboo, Nothing is Sacred, and very little makes sense. Welcome to LIGHT TALK!

In this episode of LIGHT TALK with The Lumen Brothers, Steve, Stan, and David welcome special guest Josh White from The Joshua Light Show. Josh discusses the early days of liquid light shows at The Fillmore East, working with The Who on Tommy, installing aircraft landing lights into overhead projectors, creating abstract lighting statements, armadillo icons, improvisational lighting and busking, accidentally inventing the lava lamp, staying out of the army, disaster at Woodstock, synesthesia, Max Headroom, using spot welders in your light show, and not losing track of your "analog side".  Nothing is Taboo, Nothing is Sacred, and very little makes sense.
