Hey folks! So, a friend of a friend has some private land and is doing a small festival/dance party. He asked me to make some kind of lighting for the stage. I’ve never built a permanent installation (mostly wearables in the past), and this was super fun to build.
The build is fairly simple - a 40’x48’ piece of plywood, muzaca led diffuser channels cut at 45 degree angles, a few pieces of 1x2 pine as spacers, 430 ws2815 leds, a 300 watt power supply (overkill, I know), and a pixelblaze with sensor board attachment.
Huge shout out to the sound sequencer pattern. It makes this thing come alive, and I’m super excited to see how this runs with a proper dj setup and 3.5mm sound inputs rather than the basic mic.
I’ll upload some pics of the build process when I get another minute.
That is so cool. I have a piece that is going to a party at the end of this month, i would love to be able to do this with it! i wonder if that sensor board attachment would work with the ws2812b’s or how you even mapped it with a google sheet?! i have been trying to map one of my pieces forever. that is next level man i love it
I think I want to build some fixtures that sit behind the DJ and are activated just by different frequency bands, but I also have to figure out how to get the sound inputs to reach both (probably just use a 3.5mm splitter, but you know… that distributed inputs via firestorm is looking really really nice right about now).
