LightRiders specializes in creating unique, lightart installations and visual experiences especially suited for concerts, live shows, film and music videos and more.
Collectively, LightRiders has been involved in every avenue of entertainment and event production for over 15 years. They have worked as musicians and performers, held diverse roles in the film and video industry, managed live sound, been studio engineers, composed for film, and headed event production locally and nationally. They have also worked for businesses and non-profits outside of the entertainment field, published papers exploring the science of music (NIH) and are extensively involved in areas of community-based social justice and arts.
This year at Loop, LightRiders will set up their installation, BEAD to hang above the rooftop of the Montalbán Theatre. BEAD blends a retro feel with a futuristic art installation, consisting of approximately 2000 individually controllable RGB light beads stranded together. Starting at dusk every night of Loop, Bead will react to the musical performances and animate on its own through interesting patterns and colors.
