LANY, The Make Out Tour – Lighting and Video Design
Spring 2016

LANY is a dreampop band based in Los Angeles, California. Their music is minimal, synth driven, intimate, and hella catchy.

This was LANY’s first headlining run, and they were mostly playing intimate rooms. For the technical requirements, we had to make sure that the setup was easy to setup, compact, and low on power draw. For the design, the band wanted a minimal & mostly backlit design. They also wanted some kind of centerpiece to make the show unique.

After several different design revisions, the band loved the idea of having a square video wall that was used with predominantly scenic still images. Accompanied with moving spots behind each band member and some moving led washes for some additional stage light, the rig was minimal yet effective.

Duck Lights designed & programmed the lighting and video content. The show was synchronized with Ableton Live using Timecode. Duck Lights provided a touring lighting tech & operator to set up, integrate venue lighting, and oversee the performance.
