Light Show In Your Pocket
A massive video wall blasts mesmerizing patterns over a crowd of hyped-up fans. Perfectly synchronized graphics respond to every nuance. Bass thumps, snare cracks, hi-hats hiss, all alive with the music.

If you're wondering... Is it beat detection? Artificial Intelligence? How can I do that? This is the workshop for you!

Light Show In Your Pocket gives you the foundation to build your own mesmerizing video displays that can run anywhere, even your phone. Having a party this weekend? Is your friend’s band playing a show? Are you decorating a storefront? Creating a piece of public art? Why not create a unique, interactive display that can respond in real-time to sounds and music.

Light Show In Your Pocket is presented in three jam-packed parts:
  • Part 1 - It starts with a presentation about music and how we interact with it visually. A bag of eye candy will be dumped into your eye. We cover dance, light shows, sound design for film, video games, composition, the humble fog machine, and even hallucinations. This lays the groundwork for your visualizer with the visual language of music.
  • Part 2 - We explore the technical side of music visualization. We cover the science of audio signals, computer code, and physics. Breaking music down into its physical essences, distilling it, and demonstrating how these various forces can be combined to control visual properties.
  • Part 3 - We make a visualizer! We’ll start with a raw, working visualizer and pump it up to the max.

Can I do this?


If you’re a developer, creative coder, web designer, or technical artist, you’ll be right at home. We’ll be coding in React-Three-Fiber. All source code is provided.
But don’t shy away if you’re not technical. If you’re a band, designer, or artist interested in meeting people who create visualizers, please join in. There is a lot to learn!

Let’s work together to create some stunning visual experiences.

See you there!
