Interview with Chris Kuroda, Lighting Designer for Phish – Part Three

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.
