A couple of Holiday Videos
We had fun doing a Foxtrot Performance for the USA Dance Holiday Ball. Amy Maneval was kind enough to video and post it. You can view it here:
I have been working on a Synchronized Christmas Music / Light display. If you are in the area, we would love for you to stop by to see it. For those out of the area I was asked if I could video it. I did try but it is difficult due to the camera's inability to capture detail of bright images in the dark. I did record it but it is not quite the same as seeing it live. Much of the detail of the light show is lost. But, here is my best shot at recording this year’s installation.

This is the 1st year and I have sequenced 4 songs. This video is of one of the songs: "Carol of the Bells by the Tran Siberian Orchestra."
What it is 
A number of years ago I wrote a program called Ballroom DJ to provide music at dances. I recently expanded the program to act as a lighting effects sequencer. This program sends commands to a number of Wifi microcomputer modules I have built and distributed in the yard. Each of these modules controls a string, strip or panel of LEDs. Each of these LEDs is individually addressable and is capable of producing over 16 thousand colors. This is the first year of this project and I have approximately 800 of the LEDs in place. I intend to significantly expand this each year.
