Computer-controlled Lights and Music Synced into Christmas Rock Spectacular

This spectacular computer controlled and synchronized lighting display combines thousands of feet of LED lighting, multiple controllers, and a rock medley to great effect.

The above display started life as the personal Christmas light display of Sioux Falls, ND resident Joe Noe. When Noe moved, he donated his display to a local mall in order to preserve the tradition of people stopping by to see it and making donations to the Make-A-Wish foundation. The local mall, Western Mall, expanded the display and added in even more LEDs and controllers. The end result is an impressive display synced to a Christmas rock medley by UK musician Richard Campbell.

If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.

    Sioux Falls is in South Dakota, not North Dakota.

    It’s very impressive, (and very time consuming to program… as someone who works with intelligent lighting quite a bit, I can say that from personal experience even though these aren’t intelligent); however, I prefer this one even though it isn’t a Christmas song. :) (But thanks for sharing HTG… I always love these displays)
