What's made of 600 lights bulbs and music?

It's Light House, a new light and sound installation debuting this Thursday at music and technology art space Sonos Studio. Designed by New York City-based design firm Softlab, Light House is a high tech art project comprised of rows of tube lights hanging from the ceiling. These bulbs are connected to a laptop and programmed to react to various sounds. Basically, when music is played through the structure, the bulbs make a dazzling synesthesia-style spectacle.
It is, perhaps, the future of EDM stage production. Light House debuts on Thursday evening with a private performance by The Crystal Method. The electronic duo will play new music from their eponymous forthcoming album -- through the installation. (The release on this album, the duo's fifth studio LP, was delayed because Crystal Method member Scott Kirkland had surgery for brain cancer this past May.) Sonos will host additional Light House collaborations from Washed Out and Bleached on July 29 and August 22, respectively.More »
