Mass MoCA, North Adams, Mass.

As a DJ and master of ceremonies, I excell at private events held at Mass MoCA not just because of the mounds of sound equipment I haul in to make it all happen, but because of the experience I have there seeing how all of the spaces can be used and the many ways an event there can flow. Let's take a closer look at the work I've done and what I've seen.

Here, I hid a tall light pole behind this white structural column. The lights require no electricity, eliminating the need for messy wires and are fully controlled from a small portable lighting board.

My completely wireless uplights are easy to space evenly without worry of the number or location of electrical outlets. Best of all, there's never any messy wires on the floor.

This is no time for taking more pictures; I've got to keep this dance floor packed!

While amber uplighting was used throughout the seating areas, color-changing uplights surround the dance floor in building 6 at Mass MoCA. Bright pin spots were used on the table surfaces for a dose of functional light.

Music and sound support in multiple spaces and galleries within Mass MoCA at the same event are par for the course. Here am I set up for a cocktail hour in the Prow in building 6, where I also provided uplighting.

Music and sound support in multiple spaces and galleries within Mass MoCA at the same event are par for the course. Here am I set up for a ceremony in one of my favorite spots--the Spencer Finch gallery. Notice the speakers at both far ends of the room. This makes for nice, even sound at the center where all the action usually happens. Plus, it keeps my gear out of your photos.

Even a simple glassware display looks way better with some pinspotting.
