  • Setting the Stage

    giglightsIn the past few years I have developed a passion for attending live music events. There is something about the mass of people gathering with an appreciation for a particular artist or style of music that is exhilarating. While live albums and DVDs are a tolerable substitute, they can’t compare to actually being there.

    For me, there are two aspects that can either make or break a concert: the sound quality and the stage show. One of the perks of witnessing a larger act is that they have the resources to use state of the art sound equipment and put on a spectacular show. The best shows, in my opinion, combine creative lighting and smoke machines to create a unique ambiance.

  • Manmade Phenomena

    fogAs I was driving to work today, a thick layer of fog suddenly descended upon me. After a few minutes of fighting to gain visibility, the fog suddenly lifted and revealed a majestic sun rise with shades of orange, pink and lavender. While I pondered the miraculous nature of Mother Nature, I realized that humans have been ingenious enough to recreate many of these amazing phenomena.

    Creating any sort of weather used to be a thing of science fiction, but today it is a reality. Making fog for stage shows and home parties is commonplace and simple for anyone with a basic machine. With the help of crystals and other reflective elements, we can even recreate the stunning colors of the rainbow.

  • Keep It Cold

    fog_chiller_intakeEveryone has seen or been in the midst of a fog machine, but many people don’t know how they work. Fog machines combine boiling water with some form of cooling agent to create steam, which the machine then emits. There are several types of fog machines, but if you want low-hanging fog, you’ll need to use a fog chiller.

    Chilling the fog prevents it from rising and ensures that it lingers low to the ground. Old style machines had to use dry ice or liquid nitrogen to create this effect, but now there are models that run on simple ice cubes. These new innovations have made fog machines safer and more user-friendly.

  • Setting the Part Mood

    partyThere is something about fog that creates the perfect atmosphere for a party, particularly in the fall season. Party fog helps create an eerie ambiance for a Halloween bash or a haunted house. There are multiple options to choose from when implementing fog at your party.

    The most traditional option for fog is dry ice, which is a solid form of carbon dioxide. Although this method works, it can be dangerous and takes a lot of effort. A more practical option is fog machine. This will ensure that you have fog throughout your party, and gives you more control is choosing where to disperse it.

  • Last-Minute Party Plans

    fog-halloweenIn previous weeks we’ve discussed the spooky ambience that a fog machine can lend to your Halloween festivities. It’s always a good idea to keep your guests on edge with some low-lying fog and a soundtrack that’s suitable for the season. But we neglected to mention one of the most popular visual effects that can take your Halloween party to the next level.

    Think about the way witches’ cauldrons are depicted on TV and in the movies. They’re always bubbling with slightly menacing liquids, and there’s a disturbing green fog emanating from within. Why not replicate this eerie effect for your own devilish ends? You can use fog Halloween trickery to turn your punchbowl into an authentic witches’ brew. The contents might not be lethal, but they should certainly be potent.
