One of my colleagues is a member of the Adelaide Samba drumming club – SaSamba. I guess he was a bit jealous of the feathered samba dancers getting all the attention during a gig. So he brought up the idea of a sound/drumming activated light system for the band.
We aimed to get the set-up ready for the Adelaide Fringe parade. The parade takes place at night with plenty of opportunity to show off different sorts of lights.
