Live Guitar Audio to MIDI to DMX Light Control Mapping

From vjmedia

This project is the work of Landon Airey in Professor V. J. Manzo’s seminar course, C Term 2013 at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. The lighting demo setup was prepared in conjunction with Rayce Stipanovich. This project focuses on creating interactive music systems to aid in composition and performance. As an engineer I am inspired by visual representations of media in the form of lights. The ultimate goal is to represent a real time digital form of a guitar audio signal and drive DMX lighting commands. The final form of the lighting system should map each note/fret played on any string to a large array of lights to visualize the individual notes played.

This is a series of test videos with slightly different lighting controls.
