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.

PerformanceMesh To Pangolin Beyond is a completely free program. It is an OSC message translation tool that translates incoming Multicast messages and redirects them over local address to a format that the Pangolin Beyond laser program can easily process.

These are messages that are being sent from our range of sensor modules. These include DataGlove, IRCamTrack, ColorTrack, DataShoe, PressureTrack, BeaconTrack, SkeleTrack and PerformanceLED.

In order for these messages to control laser functions, customer servers must be created inside Beyond. We have made this an easy process by providing example scripts in Beyond loadable format.

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.
