What is Performance Mesh?

PerformanceMesh was developed for Live Performance/show control where multiple performers and Artists needed realtime control of Pyrotechnics, lasers, lighting, sound,video control and other special effects. Each artist can move freely around a stage utilising camera motion sensing, sonar range distancing and hand control of his or her part of the show. Open sound control an industry standard is used for sending data around the wireless network. This robust protocol is used throughout the industry. We will continue to add wireless sensors to the Performance family but if you have any custom requests or requirements or a tailor made performance mesh please contact us.

About Us

David Hickford


From developing MIDI Products in the 1980’s David was Contracted to build the first working Laser Harp for Jean-Michel Jarre's Docklands concert. David went on to form and run Laser Innovations for over 20 years; a hugely successful company designing laser control systems. Laser Innovations sold to regions across the globe. They were asked to supply high power laser systems, specially modified to work in the Forensic sector. This led to an ongoing relationship with UK and worldwide Police forces. After a number of successful years David then decided to sell the business and retire. A year later David then formed Laser Technology. One of Laser Technology’s first orders came from Blackpool Council to provide a fully automated long range wireless laser system. However David's real love was pioneering interactive technology for the music and performing arts industry. Coincidentally David was introduced to Iskender Paydas and Ferman Akgul, hugely talented musicians in the Turkish music industry. They have collaborated on several projects including a 13 string laser harp and is currently working on a MIDI laser guitar. For the past 2 years David has been working on PerformanceMesh, a fully interactive control system.
