Kaleida Visuals with RAWLiGHT @ New Gernica. I didn't manage to record any of the Synthwave that followed. Too many button's to push

I operated Lighting, Laser's and Video on my own tonight. All programmed by Daniel Flysher. With an added tweak here and there along the way

It's good to be back behind the button's

Thanks Kaleida Visuals and New Gernica for having me :)

What a wonderful world...

We have all been through so much hell the last few years. Even before lockdown. I remember a lot of people struggling through 2019. Myself included

Yeah yeah I know. What am I doing getting personal on my business page. Well here is the thing. It's an artist page. Not a business page :)

RAWLiGHT knows what makes you tick. And RAWLiGHT knows you need a lot more outdoor energy amongst the trees

I use to be part of a strong community. And I still am. except everything has changed

We where always going to grow up. Grow together. And grow apart. It's the cycle of life.

We also knew the threat of all this happening was very real. Well before it happened.
It's done now though. Our society and communities are divided. And over what amounts to nothing more than a sick joke.
Sheesh. Covid hu?

Despite having bad blood with some of my favourite people. And despite the way everyone turns on one another out of confusion, pettiness and distrust. I have kept RAWLiGHT safe and productive.
Yes. I lost a lot of equipment. But you wouldn't know it if you saw the inventory.

I have kept a focus on 3 things. Lighting. Laser's. And. A big fat Fane sound system. Which has always been a staple of RAWLiGHT, even though it's predominantly a visual effects thing.

Can I do it like the old day's? Oh hell yeah!!!
And then some.

RAWLiGHT will be collaborating a lot through winter. Which is my pet peeve. I can't stand the cold. But our community needs and deserves fresh energy put in at the ground level. The free party and small party scene.

I watch an event like ESO happen. And I am struck by how many people that all parties together 10 years ago. Have risen to be festival staples and even headliners.
I can remember every single one of them playing through my rigs at some point or other. In a cold Forrest. Or a beautiful valley.
We all stood for something. And that was a continuation of the sound for up to 60 hours at a time ! What else we stood for is a mystery to me. But it's many little thing's. Care, spirituality, psychedelic freedom and safety. Or just a warm body to snuggle up with next to the fire.
Those are the things that wherent often discussed. But well understood and evident to anybody in attendance

The doors are open anyway. If you need help pushing that warm glow of the sound or lighting deeply enough to be felt. You can inbox me and arrange anything. I have equipment. And I have skilled peeps ready to go if more hands are needed

My housemate wears a hat that says "make doof great again". And to me. That's fine. But what we really need to do. Is make Melbourne great again. By putting aside our differences. And embracing our common bonds.

I'll see you out there. Rain hail or shine. Don't be afraid to approach me. Even if we have had our differences. I look forward to lol those long hugs and meaningful gazes that comes from a group of people who just want to pass the time by in the company of likeminded individuals who they have something bin common with. A passion for the good times

I'll see you out there Melbourne

Firstly. before this page can resume any work. share any news. or engage in the resumption of our industry.
I need to take a minute to reflect and share in the light that was the Beautiful Sandy Cam, AKA. Sands.

Sands moved on from this realm about 10 days ago. She was one of the pioneers and inventors of our scene. what she brought with her to this country. along with her family of Mutoids. got to touch nearly everyone is Australia at one time or another. an Unsung hero in 1 light. while being the true Queen of the Bohemian world.

What Sands has meant in my life reflects often in my approach and style. a huge influence who showed me things and took me places that lead me to where I am today.
If anybody has pictures of Artwork, sculptures or any of that stuff. please share it around. wherever you can. she was a guiding light. and we should all be reminded a few things with her memory.

If she where here right now she would be pointing out that it's time for a renascence :) and we all have work to do.

I have just removed the "for sale" listing for the 5 watt Lanlings.
Sorry to anybody who was excited.

At that price. If you ever see a 5 watt laser with DT30 scan set's.
Buy it!

I switched them on to do a demo vid for a client.
Then decided I was crazy. I found other ways to bridge the gap with bills.

RAWLiGHT says Covid sux!
RAWLiGHT is sad for EVERY person in the event industry that has been effected by this.

RAWLiGHT wishes thing's didn't go down this way.

RAWLiGHT will survive the crisis.
RAWLiGHT has had new facilities since Christmas. RAWLiGHT has it's rent paid up.

The new facility/warehouse is amazing. We have been settling in gently since the start of the year. It's gone from a semi construction site type place. To a very comfortable business setup. It's in the middle of a lot of renovation at the moment.b

RAWLiGHT has held onto all of it's Audio, Lighting and Laser equipment.

I'm in a position to rebuild all 10 Fane top speaker's properly (currently 7 are complete).

That would give me 4 top cabs a side mounted 2x2.

I have 6 subs to go under this. I could really use 1 more matching pair. But the rig is tough the way it is. And will be fine for bridging the gap if we lose production workers to other industries at this time.

I also have 5 full colour lasers. And a bunch of moving lights and stuff. I kept all my good equipment.

The underground is weaponised :)

*** The Images shown are random. And may include production equipment belonging to other companies.

We are sharing space with a few big players in Audio. F1 and DB system's available too. Enquire within.

Hello everyone.

I would like to announce that RAWLiGHT has survived the pandemic.
We will still be a viable solution for your technical event needs as venues and events re emerge.

The sound systems are still in great condition. With an 8k Fane rig ready to go

We still have plenty of lasers in stock for hire

And there is a lighting rig still in the warehouse as well. With moving heads and LED pars.

We have relocated to just outside the CBD on the North/West side.

We are also proud agents for Ishtar Sounds and VizFX. Stockists of great Funktion one sound and Radiant laser goodness.

At this stage. I am willing to pencil in any event bookings that are planned for when lockdown is over. I do advise event organisers be very wise and mindful about their plan's and commitments.

Winter is probably off the card's. But if winter events do go ahead. So will we. Rugged up like bunnies!

RAWLiGHT has also acquired a fat solar system and batteries. But it's only for RnD at the moment. A silent battery operated generator is a long term goal though. For quiter builds at smaller events. or for a quite site office vibe. or a gate that is too far from generators. with a little luck it will be ready to go in time for summer.

Our first load for the season is under way.
We split a truck with UE Industries for the occasion.

I don't think it's all going to fit. Hopefully we can fit the couches in at the end :)

I have spent the night servicing lasers and testing moving heads. 4:30 am Finish after starting around 9pm. I have enjoyed a good work flow now that I have practical space.

Laser and lighting equipment is ready to go for Industrial Jungle. all the is left to prep is the sound system. and I'm pretty sure there is enough ready to go. but I want to finish off the last sub for good measure.

I would have taken some photo's but my phone camera is on it's way out.
Here are some pics from a show I did at Bablyon earlier in the year. Daniel Flysher from Kalida also operated on the Saturday night. He will be joining us again at Industrial to make it one hell of a show.

Those are our moving heads in those pics too.

Thing's are firing up for me and RAWLiGHT.
I have been servicing the equipment and re stocking PAR can's. getting all the cables in order. going through clamps and accessories. It's been a long time since lighting gigs!

Over the last 2 years I have mostly had Laser and Sound bookings. with my last light show being the day the cyclone hit Darwin last year.

This season I will be offering Sound systems and crew for hire. Lasers and laserist's for bookings and events. and Lighting for dry hire. with stupid prices on the small stuff thanks to market trends. I'll have some large high res Video projectors, staging, rigging and other accessories on hand as well.

The sound system is big now. and soon it will be getting another expansion. With an entire Turbosound concert rig added to the inventory. I don't want to talk about it much more until it's in my hands. but it is ready to be booked. and will easily cover over 2,000 people in a crowd.

Here is a flashback to the Last lighting job I did in Melbourne. If you recognize this stuff then you know where you need to be in a little over a week from now ;)

IJ4. please come out and enjoy our first outing for the season with all of us. most of the old faces will be there.

A year in Darwin has come to an end.

I have been involved with so many amazing events here. It has been a real blast.

I have also had the pleasure of mentoring a few sound and laser enthusiasts throughout the year.

From the different nightclub events at Discovery, Monsoons, Bar3 and Rorkes. To the bigger doofs at Gun Point where I met the Darwin Doofers, the smaller doofs in between and of course 2 Electric Storms with E3 Production's.

Darwin has opened it's arms and it's doors to me this year more than ever before. And for that I thank you all.

My next stop is Melbourne. The lighting rig and laser rig go on a truck tomorrow. And I'll be not too far behind.

The Mighty Fane PA system is staying here in Darwin ready for next year. And I have lined up some other rigs for the season in Melbourne already.

Tanglewood festival is all locked in. With an easy shift doing Lasers and monitoring one of the Turbosound rigs.

I don't plan on being too busy during December. But if you have an event you need production for don't hesitate to get in touch. If we can't sort you out we will pass your details to somebody who can.

I don't have many pics in this phone as usual. And I am in between office's. So if you have photos of any the events we have shared this year. Please post them to this page :)

To everyone in Darwin. You have been amazing to work with and get to know. All the best until next year

A laser show I ran on the weekend in Darwin.
We also provided sub woofers and a processor for the Audio system. As well as some UV LED pars.

Big thanks to Leon Radomi for all the help and support on this one.

Next stop is Attiq nightclub. This weekend we will have it sounding much better. Plans are under way for a few laser shows and maybe a bit of RAWLIGHT style lighting.

It's been an interesting year. With lots of changes.

All the odd and spare equipment has been sold.
The shed has been packed up and the keys handed I months ago. And RAWLiGHT is only a few steps from relocating to Darwin for the season.

A pair of 5 watters arrived in Darwin this morning. Just in time for the weekend.

The PA and lighting rig should be on a truck any day now. And the rest of the lasers will travel up with me.

It's been an incredible 6 years of events. But it's time to spread the love elsewhere and stick to my original plan.

RAWLiGHT is still booked for a few sneaky events in Victoria this season. I hope to see a lot of you at them :)

I'll see you all next summer :)

07/05/2017

RAWLiGHT has relocated to the hills

we are no longer based in the western suburbs. it was perfect. but this is even better. more shed space, less overheads and better amenities on site such as a separate shed for mechanical work

we will have to lay a concrete slab or two over winter. and build some decked flooring as well. as our main shed floor isn't sealed yet

RAWLiGHT will not be available for gig's in Victoria between the months of June and July. as I plan to head up to the N.T. for Territory day and stay a few weeks

an update is well overdue

unfortunately I don't have pics from any of the events we attended this season. not sure why or where they are. but they will emerge for you all to see over winter

We lit The Band stage at Tanglewood, then we headed over to Adelaide for Summer VIbes where we provided and ran lighting and lasers on 2 stages. after that is was straight back for Rainbow Serpent Festival chill stage.

February saw us take 2 of our Fane PA systems out for Orikies Landing. as well as some lighting and a laser rig. along with a smaller private party in the hills that saw quite a lot of damage to the kit. whoops! a broken horn flare on a speaker. a dropped laser leading to internal wiring repairs. and the steering on the Falcon requiring a new boot and a good service

March was anything but quiet. even without a booking. a lot of our friends were on the Mandala stage production for Babylon festival. so I tagged along for fun.

for now. I am prepping for the Renegade in lew of a popular event that has been postponed. details are limited if any

We have purchased a bunch of atmospheric machines just in time for what should be a great laser and light show. although rigging has been pulled back to a minimum which is unexciting.

We have also fixed ALL 6 of our 575 moving heads. it took a while. and was a big job. but it's finally finished and they are ready for action

we also boughtt another pair of 5 watt lasers. 1 needs a bit of tinkering though before it's ready to go out

I also recently connected with an excellent fixture repairman. so equipment going down won't be so much trouble anymore. I dealt with most repairs up until now. something I always enjoy but am not always skilled enough for

here are some boring equipment photo's for you of equipment that's just been added to the inventory
