    I am a drummer at Florida State University, and my bands will be playing
    around town soon. I would like to create an effect like the one found at

    Specific instances are found here:

    I have a few questions:

    1.) What kind of sensor would one use to trigger an LED light to illuminate
    for a brief moment whenever, say, the bass drum is played.

    2.) I am also thinking about setting up several small strobe lights around
    the drum set,
    --similar to the one found here:
    and I would like to have a single switch control all of the lights. While
    keeping this as simple as possible -- I have never built electronics like
    this before --, I would like the lights to go off at different speeds so the
    lights would look more random and jittery, rather than the entire drum set
    lighting up at one time. The timing is less of a concern though.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
