May The 4th Be With You

Star Wars day theme lighting show

Ran my first ever lighting show on 4th May, using only 12 of the 16 Channel LOR AC controller.

  • 1 Minute filler (test each light and function)
  • Star Wars Medley (apologies, but forgot who I got original sequence from)
  • I am your Father
  • Star Wars Medley violin version – see the amazing Taylor Davis youtube video

Didn’t take a video but my visualizer, sequence and audio files are available from the Downloads page

Fairly happy, but obviously I’ve got a lot of work ahead.

Next light show is planned for Halloween, this will be the same 12 props plus 1 singing christmas tree disguised as a ghost. I’ll document construction and post in the How To page.

So whats’ been happening lately?

Built several props – mini trees and ‘spirals’.

Finally got around to mounting the rope light clips to the walls for the ‘house outline’.

Finished sequencing the 3 tunes for the upcoming display.

Had to come up with different idea for some of the rope lights, so made 4 more mini trees.

Played around with a few sequences I found / was given / stole 🙂  to get a better idea of how sequences work.

Refined (using the term loosely) plan for lights shows this year and what lights and props I’ll use.

Scoured the internet, especially all the forums, for ideas, tips, designs.

Went to Bunnings and Masters way too many times and spent way too much money.

Came across an awesome version of Bohemian Rhapsody I can use for Christmas. So here’s to learning how to sequence singing trees. 🙁
