Putting It All Together
Let's start with Quixotic Fusion performing live with the LED wall they've created for the show ONE. The wall is composed of over 1100 RGB LED fixtures. The content is synced with the music using the MIDI input feature of Lightjams. Lighting design by Daniel Parks. The lighting software used to control the LED wall is Lightjams.
Lighting Designer, Nick Foligno from Union Garage Audio designed and ran this light show live to the music of Brooklyn band, The Vandelles. He used a MIDI controller (Akai APC40) to activate cues and designated 'hot' keys for special effects like strobes, floods and fog. Everything is controlled via Lightjams.
Interactive stage design blending video and lighting. Many techs are used, including MIDI launchpads, real time music analysis and multiple DMX universes transmitted wirelessly with ArtNET. Some effects are even controlled via live Wiimote movements.
Effect triggering with wiimotes and music analysis. 27 par cans behind the screen, 18 Colorado 3s, 4 Martin Mac500s, 7 Elation 250 Designspots and 16 LED Blinders.
Up-lighting activated by the music beats. The DJ is also using a MIDI launchpad to trigger effects.
Here's a video from Mark Anderson (AndersonLights) using TouchOSC to "play" lights live along with musicians. He has created multiple effects in Lightjams which are triggered in real-time, remotely from his iPad.
MIDI - Lighting with Music Instruments and MIDI sequencers
A wall full of parcans with a smooth effect running on it and live control via a Behringer BCF2000.
Special underwater LED installation designed by Michael Clive using multiple MIDI controllers.
A keytar and pre-recorded MIDI tracks are used to control the intensity of incandescent lamps.
A bass player with an advanced MIDI pedal is generating lighting effects.
Lights are following a keyboard player. This is a one-to-one mapping between MIDI notes and lights.
Lighting Control with the Kinect via OSC Input
Experimentation with a Kinect to control the pan of a moving light. A wiimote is used to change the tilt, color and intensity.
