Description

This is a MUST see traditional Christmas light show that has been fully synchronized to music, designed and built by an 18 year old to help benefit the mission of Make-A-Wish Metro New York.

Additional Information:
We're planning on expanding to more stage equipment like DMX to make this show super unique and stand out! But that is for 2021, we hope. This year we kept it simple with just your average traditional Christmas lights you can find anywhere in the stores. Soon to be RGB. This show is all controlled by a Renard and a $35 computer called a raspberry pi.
 
This is the third light show I made outside! The first year I was synchronizing lights on my Christmas tree to music but I wanted to go bigger and better. Next year I want to go RGB but that's a big step so I may just have a little bit and still use my Renard.
 
My first controller was 12 channels strictly on and off and I did not like that. (Now I am using it for the mega tree and the mini trees.) It was just boring. I wanted it to dim/fade. So I researched and found that the best and cheapest way was to use a Renard.
 
TUNE TO 89.7 FM TO LISTEN TO THE LIGHTS!!!
