Shiva Photonics, Dancing Shiva Lights

 

Personnel:
Tim Hodgson
Jon Brodel.

 

SHIVA PHOTONICS original influences stem from American late 60's west coast events particularly Kesey's "Acid Tests" and arts happenings like Andy Warhol's Exploding Plastic Inevitable

More directly, the liquid lightshow techniques derive from early Pink Floyd lightshows & "wet shows" such as Sahara farm and Cosmic circus liquid cinema in 1969/70.
The slide art collection has grown continuously since 1982, when it reformed as the Dancing Shiva Lightshow to launch the Magic Mushroom Band. It performed at Stonehenge festivals, usually in the Tibet tent and has accompanied various bands including Underworld, Ozric Tentacles, Nik Turner's Inner City Unit and Dr.& The Medics.
It was also a central feature of the Alice in Wonderland Psychedelic Film Festivals and Magical Mystery Trips.

Shows have been performed for Quintessence the 60's Psychedelic club in Piccadilly, and the now legendary performance of the Experimental Sound Field at Glastonbury Festival 1992.

SHIVA PHOTONICS combine multi~imaging, Kaleidoscopics, stereoscopics, live liquid lightshow, multiple effects and sequencing methods, Digital, video and laser Technologies and other more archaic methods with a very highly developed sense of positive psychedelic visual stimulation.
