The record label contacted Graetzmedia director Dan wanting “lights and pyro” but only had budget to cover a single flame canon.
So I got to work designing, inventing and fabricating on 3 different setups:
Audio-controlled lighting: With the song stems controlling stage lights.
Flame Tubes: My versions of the classic “Reubens Tube” science experiment, with audio controlling 6 separate channels of propane-tubes.
Sparkler Cannons: To enable model rocket igniters to trigger the difficult-to-burn sparklers, I had to come up with my own mixture of gunpowder.
