Christmas Canon (Children's Choir) CCR Sequence

Recommended Posts

I took a break from working on my software and wrote a sequence to Trans-Siberian Orchestra's "Christmas Canon Rock." This is the version using a children's choir. This is one of my favorites, it still makes me teary eyed to listen to it. It is on youtube at:

Thanks for the comment. I really laughed, not at the comment, but at your avatar animation, looks like you've had some bad experiences with a computer!! I think we can all relate.

My wife is pretty supportive, but she admits she was a little peaved at me when I bought the 12 CCRs, she was thinking, "why can't he be happy with the lights he already has." But she says she didn't realize how cool they would be and she has no regrets now.

I was talking to Dennis Cherry, he has 4 CCRs, and in his case his wife is the one that wants more!

Well, you did such a great job! My wife even said that. She told me to save up my pennies and maybe next year! Thanks for your good work on the sequencing and the video.

Have you tried your software with Lynx controllers? I am planning on using a mix of LOR and Lynx. I will have 16 CCR type ribbons. using RJ's (Lynx creator) Pixel net set up using about 4800 channels. Just wondering.

I have only tested with LOR CCR controllers. What my software does is export a file that the LOR Sequence editor can read and then you play that file using the LOR Sequence editor. So if the LOR Sequence editor will play to your ribbons, then my software should work with them.

Brian,

Can you post of some pictures how you mount your CCR's. Does the wind ever mess them up so you can't see them. I am trying to do something similar.

Thanks
Brandon

Brian,

That is by far the best "new" sequencing execution I have seen. I thought that it was exceptionally done. Very creative. Thanks for sharing. I too love that version of Christmas Canon Rock.

The ribbons are attached to ropes with aluminum wire going crossways in four places. It is not a ridgid structure so there is some movement in high winds. But if you look at my first "Carol of the Bells" video you can see it is fairly wind from the trees in the background yet there is no movement in the ribbons. However, since I have my ribbons up against my house, the house helps block the wind. If you had the ribbons coming down from a pole out away from the house I'm sure you would have movement from the wind more often.

This is a youtube link to the video that shows it is windy yet there is no movement of the ribbons


Attached is a close up picture of the CCRs at the bottom of the star.

Looks like attachments automatically get displayed in the message, so I will attach another picture, I don't see a way to attach more than one image at a time.

Each ribbon is zip tied to the top of two 3/8 inch polyester ropes. This is a close up showing where I have aluminum wire going crossways to keep the ribbons facing forward.

This is the bottom of the ropes where they are staked into the ground.

Here is a picture from a fellow named Jeffrey Frank in Wisconsin. He made a superstar similar to mine. He used steel cable, and added some rope to the back of the cables so the zip ties would not slip. The other thing to do is attach the CCRs to PVC pipe, but i do not have any pictures of that.

Just left your web page!! Impressive to say the least. Looks like you are a programmer for a sign company. The star itself is a work of art.
