The fine folks at iSquint talked to Jim for their Where is the Industry Heading? series. Check it out for some insight into Jim’s thoughts on the future of LEDs, his methods, advice for beginners in the industry, and more.
The third installment of four parts of my interview with Chris Kuroda – Chris talks about the use of video in the future, the gear in his current rig, getting used to new gear, making less look like more, and just being a guy in FOH who’s designing a light show.
One of my favorite parts of the interview was Chris’ belief in shedding the mentality that he’s the fifth member of the band. “I just want to be a guy who’s out there doing my job; I take a lot of pride in my work. I’m trying to do the best I can. I’m trying to become a bit more low-key – I don’t believe in the whole “CK5,” I believe in the four members of Phish and they are Phish. I’m just trying to do my best to complement what they’re doing.”
