Ocean’s Edge School of Worship is getting ready to have it’s annual Not So Silent Night Christmas show. It’s a good time for the students and staff to push themselves to put together a great event that will be enjoyed by hundreds of people. While the goal is a to have a great time of worship with the body we also want the students to feel the pressure of an event like this so they can learn and grow in their skills.
While getting ready for this show we came up with a cool plan for triggering lights. Basically we’re triggering all of our lighting cues from Ableton Live using MIDI and MIDI Show Control. So far it’s working very well for the first attempt at something of this scale. I’ll be sure to get some video of the setup in action as well as go into some more details on how we’re making this happen.
The show is this coming Friday and Saturday in our theatre. There’s still a lot left to do but we’re in good shape for being this far out. For now that picture is my view of the show as we finish up lighting cues. Always behind some kinda gadget at work, ha ha.
