MS106: Highlight On Lighting with guest Chris Lisle

This episode sheds some light behind the scenes of concert lighting with a discussion with lighting designer, Chris Lisle, who has designed shows for Miranda Lambert, Robert Plant, Jason Aldean, Quincy Jones, and Keith Urban just to name a few.

I’m pretty fortunate to have worked with so many wonderful people in the music world. However, my guest on this episode is truly one of my favorite human beings. Chris Lisle, owner of Chris Lisle Lighting Design (CLLD), is one of those rare talents that is not only a master at what he does, but he is extremely passionate about it. You can hear it in the way he talks about his craft and business. You will also quickly discover what a genuine soul he is. It won’t be a mystery as you listen through our laughter how much fun we both had with this episode.

Examples of Chris’ Work

I mentioned in the episode that I would post some pictures here of Chris’ lighting work, including a rendering from the WYSIWYG software. Here’s an example from a Miranda Lambert tour that CLLD designed:
