ABOUT

ME

Simon Horn- Lighting Design

I have spent most my time touring at the last few years but I also work closley for several lighting companies and production houses (GLS, HSL, Production North, MCL, Electric Fly Productions, Kaotic Noise.....). Primarily as a Designer and or Programmer/Operator, but still taking on some tech work.

I have Designed and/or Programmed/Operated for acts such as Anastacia O lly Murs, Westlife, Alison Moyet, The Pouges, Peter Andre, 5ive, B*Witched, Blue, 911, The Honeys, A1, Liberty X and at Festivals such as IOW Festival, Global Gathering, Beautiful Days, Hop Farm, Larmer Tree Festival, End of the Road, Big Chill...to creating Full Design, Pre Production Data and show Programming/Operation for corporate events such as banquets and conferences from a few hundred to several thousand delegates.

Currently my desk of choice is a Chamsys MagicQ of which I own a MQ200 and the compact range MQ70 and MQ40, the brilliant thing about the compact range is that they are a complete console that I can take on as plane hand luggage, thus I can make sure I always have my desk of choice with . MagicQ is a very powerful desk that takes the best of Avo, Hog and Grandma and puts it into a very stable and quick access environment. However I am also no stranger to Hog or Avolites Titan desks.

I am highly competent with other technologies, such as : Media servers (Hippo and Ai,) Robe DigiSpots and RGB Colour LASER Systems. All of wich I am skilled at fully integrating together.

PERSONALITY

I pride myself on being friendly, reliable, trustworthy, calm & collected with strong time management and direction skills, this making me a prime candidate for both corporate and touring/concert/festival work. I work hard and play just as hard.

TRAINING

Over the years I have picked up many tickets and completed plenty of training courses including the following :

- Health & Safety Passport

- IPAF MEWP

-PASMA Scaff Tower

- Total Fabrications Rigging for the Entertainment Industry

- Class C Driving Licence

HUMBLE BEGININGS

I joined this industry back in 2000, my first paid gig being at a local festival (Chichester Real Ale & Jazz Festival) as house LD with the late James Brown as headliner. I have now supported that festival ever since.

I continued only working part time as at the time I was working in IT as a consultant for the education sector, this progressed up to managing large networks and teams of technicians along with full design & project management.....in 2006 I woke up and decided I just didn’t want to do that anymore, so I left and began to work on my freelance career as a lampy.
