This is a project that I created for a Digital Multi Media class that I'm taking. I did it in hopes to notify my dad when he is being too loud. He's been a musician all of his life and due to this he can no longer hear as good as he used to. So hopefully now he can see how loud he is!

Step 1: Materials and Tools
-Electret Microphone Amplifier -http://www.adafruit.com/products/1063
-Adafruit NeoPixel Digital RGB LD Weatherproof Strip 30 LED (1 meter) -http://www.adafruit.com/products/1376
-6x AA Battery Holder
- 20 in Paper Lantern
Step 2: LET'S DO IT! (wiring)-microphone
Step 3: LET'S DO IT (cont.)-LED
Step 4: GO To Your HOME!
I connected my 6x AA battery pack to the bottom of the farm and placed my Arduino on top of that. I also attached my Arduino with a zip tie.
Step 5: All of the Wires!
For the LED's I connected GND to GND. DIN was connected to pin 6 and 5v to the 5v pin.
DIN on the LEDS shows which way the flow is going. You can alter the pin number in the code. It's worked fine for me.
