Dan Deacon released this app to be used as a crowd sourcing experiment.
From Dan Deacon: “Six months ago, I created the Dan Deacon app (powered by Wham City Lights) to turn my audience’s smartphones into a synchronized light show. Since it’s a brand new technology and a new way to think about lighting, each night was a trial and error learning experience. In that time I’ve really begun to learn the strengths of the app and what it can do — but I only see it from the stage.
The app is made for the audience to interact with. So the developers and I thought it would be awesome to call on you, my fans, to experiment with the light show itself. For my upcoming US tour with Animal Collective, we will be using light shows generated by fans themselves. ”
