MNDR’s MIDI Synced Rainbow Box

Electronic musician MNDR used an Arduino-powered light show for her month-long North American tour in early 2012. Creators Reid and Sean lit up audiences by putting 72 RGB LEDs inside a clear acrylic case that held MNDR’s gear. This poster will outline an inexpensive electronics LED project in the context of a touring musician (making it road-worthy) and programming the Arduino to make an MIDI-controlled visual instrument that’s easy to use.
