I'm a musician and I'm trying to make our live shows a bit more entertaining. As the lead vocals and synth, I want to show the audience what I'm playing when I'm "hidden" behind my keyboard.
I've thought of putting a LED Bar on the front (audience wise) side of the keyboard and triggering different parts of the LED Bar depending on the note I hit on my keyboard. I'd basically like to render a simple piano animation on these leds whenever I hit a key. For example, when I hit a note on the left of my keyboard, a rectangle shape will light up on the left side of the LED Bar, letting the audience see which key I just hit.
Do you think it's possible ? I'm quite new to the RPI / Midi abilities so I don't really know where to start ...
Thanks for your help, and don't hesitate to tell me if it isn't clear enough, my english isn't quite perfect
Thanks a lot
