You will find a reference to the xLights Around The World project at the top of our page. Our participation in this project was the inspiration for creating this site. 

What is the xLights Around The World Project?

The xLights Around the World project is a collaborative effort involving lighting enthusiasts from all over the globe. The core idea of this project is to create a synchronized light show, made from sequences in the xLights software, where each participant designs and programs a segment of a song. These individual parts are then combined to form a complete, coordinated light show.

Key aspects of the project include:

  1. Global Participation: Hobbyists and professionals in the field of lighting and display artistry contribute from various parts of the world, bringing a diverse range of styles and techniques to the project.
  2. Song Selection and Segmentation: A specific song is chosen for the project. This song is divided into segments, and each participant is responsible for one segment. They design the light show for their assigned part using xLights, a popular software used for sequencing light shows.
  3. Coordination and Collaboration: Despite the geographical spread of the participants, the project requires a high level of coordination. This is often facilitated through online platforms where participants can share ideas, progress, and receive feedback.
  4. Creativity and Innovation: Participants use a combination of lights, controllers, and software to create their segments. This encourages innovation and creativity, as each participant brings their unique touch to the project.
  5. Final Compilation and Sharing: After all segments are completed, they are compiled into one continuous show. The final product is then shared online for the wider community to enjoy. It showcases the collective creativity and effort of all the participants.
  6. Community and Learning: Beyond the creation of a light show, the project fosters a sense of community among participants. It also serves as a learning experience for many, as they get to interact with and learn from fellow enthusiasts with varying levels of expertise.

The xLights Around the World project is a testament to the power of collaboration and community in the digital age, bringing together people from around the world to create something beautiful and unique in the realm of light displays.
