Ra Ra Riot Beta Love Tour Lighting Design
Lighting Design for Ra Ra Riot’s North American BETA LOVE tour
All of the technology was built off of open source elements and the circuits were all Arduino platform, with each unit operating its own dedicated Arduino. Each Arduino has its own internal address and receives 14 byte packets of data telling it what to do (rate, pattern, color, brightness). All patterns are baked into the Arduino code- so that in the case of a signal disconnect, the lights will continue to run. In addition to the pattern data, the computer sends a heartbeat ten times per second, insuring they stay in sync for patterns like color fading and strobing.
A processing sketch running on the computer controls everything, and is extended using an iPad for wireless control via touchOSC and oscP5.
