Over thirty years of experience in the entertainment industry as a professional musician, laserist, and freelance film lighting technician alone have earned Chris Lugar the credentials to be a dreamer. With a background in engineering, stage lighting, live sound reinforcement, and production, bringing dreams to life has somehow always added to those credentials.
His ongoing Incredible Dream Experiment has sometimes been the cause of those dreams, and often, their resulting natural course. "Dreamsongs," included in this book, is one of those results. Some of his other original works can be heard on his solo album, "Through The Eyes Of A Stranger" (1997), and a collaborative acoustic effort, "Two Live Dogs-S.O.S." (2002).
Chris began his career in the 1970's as a rock musician, eventually growing into working sound and lighting stages for professional touring bands.
In the 1980's, he performed hundreds of Laserium shows, the ultimate dream art form, both in Pennsylvania and California. At the world's first IMAX dome theater in San Diego, he first began exploring the concepts of dream recovery and control. Engineering and building giant inflatables for advertising and Hollywood led him to cinematography, with film credits including Tim Robbins' political cult classic Bob Roberts (1992), Steven King's The Dark Half (1993), August Wilson's The Piano Lesson (1995), The Mothman Prophecies (2002), and dozens of local and national television commercials, movies, and shows.
When not involved with professional projects, Chris's time is devoted to his family, gardening, and developing new vegetarian recipes for everyone to enjoy.
