Our diverse experience, technical skill, and artistic vision puts us in a position to understand and translate the needs of the artists we work with and the event promoters, producers, and visionaries we collaborate with.

What We Do

LightRiders specializes in creating unique, LED-based light installations and visual experiences for concerts, live shows, parties, events, site-based locations and businesses, film/music videos, and any other creative situation fit to stimulate the visual senses.

How We Do

We are not your typical lighting crew. Each project is based on a creative strategy to fit the experience. Our approach combines technology, art, and science to engage people and communities in interesting ways that spark emotion and action around a concept. Much of what we do invokes a new approach to a nostalgic theme, cultural identity, scientific exploration, or simply creating a memorable moment.

Music

 Started by musicians, we specialize in custom live presentations, performing alongside DJs and musical artists for enhanced audiovisual integration at concerts and special events. We often “play the lights” live in addition to programming audioreactive elements that allow us to improvise to make each project a unique experience. Without accompanying music, our installations still embrace a musical quality based on rhythm, tone, and feeling.

Technology

 We use unique tools and rarely, if ever, utilize out-of-the box lighting systems and materials. Instead, we handcraft custom installations and utilize specialized software coding. The result: dynamic, one-of-a-kind art installations with eye-catching visual brilliance that you simply cannot find anywhere else!

Art Installations

 Our installations impart cutting edge technology and are only limited by imagination. They are equally impactful whether inside or outside, be it standalone or embedded within a larger visual experience. Each installation can involve audience participation, interactivity, audio, and/or environmental reactivity, and, of course, captivating designs and structural elements.

About The Artists

Collectively, LightRiders has been involved in every avenue of entertainment and event production for over 15 years. We’ve worked as musicians and performers, film/video producers/executive producers, managed live sound and studio mixing, music composition for film, and headed event production locally and nationally. We have also worked for businesses and non-profits outside of the entertainment field, been published in major publications as authors exploring the science of music (NIH), and have worked extensively in areas of community-based social justice and arts.

Los Angeles is home. 

 

David Howe is an audiovisual artist and musician from Los Angeles.  He has a BFA and MFA in Music, Technology and Art (CalArts). Originally an electric/upright bassist, turned electronic performer, producer, and dj, turned digital visual artist and curator, David is a creative jack of many trades, fresh out of "art school" with a Masters in Music Technology from California Institute of the Arts. Most of his work is inspired by that improvisational whim of the moment, and driven by an attempt to bridge that dividing line where creativity and logic intersect. 

Daniel Rizik-Baer is a nonprofit professional and artist raised in LA. He has a BA in Sociology/minor in Electronic Music (UC Santa Cruz), and a Masters in Social Welfare (UC Berkeley). He began his artistic avenue  as a hip hop/instrumental producer (Silencio). This led him to work with a slew of Los Angeles heavyweights, including Open Mike Eagle, Cadalack Ron, NoCanDo, Mister CR, and Choize Areef. Daniel's passion for music production was easily translated to the light art collectively created by LightRiders.
