Sound and Lights

Created on 27 Oct 2019

Sound activated lights! Clap to make lights change color or input MIDI to make a light show

We're building lights that are activated by sound. We'll probably be using a LED matrix and a teensy/arduino for sound activation and MIDI-input. Essentially it'll be a music visualizer with colors and shaping effects
