Audience Participation

Electronic musician Dan Deacon likes to get his audience involved in his live shows, including using their phones.

For his 2012 America tour developers, Wham City created the Dan Deacon App, which syncs with the live music using the phone's microphone. The audience hold up their phones as the music is playing to create a light show, with bright sequences of colour from the screen and the camera's flash on the back. No cellular data or WiFi connection is required.

Wham City and Dan have taken it a step further, allowing the audience to design their own light show from Dan Deacon's website to be used on his 2013 tour with Animal Collective. The website also lets fans see other user-submitted light shows.
