Enhance the Mood in an Environment
Lighting is one of the biggest ways to enhance the mood in an environment. While most of the lighting will be determined by the customer and the place where the event is being held, you will need to decide what type of lighting you will be using in conjunction with the music. To some extent, lighting will be used to enhance the music, but you don’t want to overdo it. Remember the caution about blending in where clothing is concerned? That same principle holds true for lighting. More isn’t always better.
We like to do what we call the “casino test” when we think about music. Think about walking down a street in Atlantic City. The lights are constant and bright. Every building looks like a male peacock appearing as flashy as possible.
