1. In the early '70s, Disco lighting had moved on from rotating mirror globes and static ultra violet tubes (which caused anything white to glow radiantly) to sound to light units, pulsating with the music.
    As most underwear was white in those days, often worn under dark clothing, many males (including D.J.s) regretted the passing of the ultra violet fashion.
    Some D.J.s decided that sound to light units were rather brash and moved in the direction pioneered in the late '60s by Peter Wynne Wilson, the man behind Pink Floyd's Lightshow, turning manual agitation of the oil into mechanical momentum, the oil sealed in liquid wheels.
    This moves a little further forward, with the graphic wheel. A sight that adorned many a wall in the '70s.

In the early '70s, Disco lighting had moved on from rotating mirror globes and static ultra violet tubes (which caused anything white to glow radiantly) to sound to light units, pulsating with the music.
As most underwear was white in those days, often worn under dark clothing, many males (including D.J.s) regretted the passing of the ultra violet fashion.
Some D.J.s decided that sound to light units were rather brash and moved in the direction of Kinetic Projection lighting, as shown here. Looks good on the small screen, but looked much better projected over a dancing audience, or around the walls of the venue.
