looking for blueprint or schdmatic for Christmas light display with music to control the lights?

I have looked on you tube for christmas light displays with music and want to build one with 30 to 35 plugs for the lights with music. I don't have $800. to $ 3,000. to buy from a store. Would like to put together this summer and put in the local paper for people to see and collect canned food for the local food bank. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Bill

mayber u could put a wire on the speaker so that it moves with thespeaker and touchs another wire to act like a switch. i did somethinglike this with a speaker and batteries once to see if i could make thespeaker make noise and it worked
