If you need something similar, do get in touch as we now have a particularly excellent method of controlling many billions of RGB LEDs.
This was a nice commission from James LeBaigue - a device that responds visually to music during live performances. Initially we talked about making an 8X8 cube, but then James asked if it could be a trapezoidal prism instead.
Programming was taken care of by the legendary Will Gallia, who developed an amazing system to generate the light patterns. The software even provides a 3D preview, which can be used to test new patterns before connecting to the sculpture.
