FORGET static Christmas light displays, "dancing" lights that flicker to music are the way of the future - and this Brassall family has mastered the trend.
Brady Gray, together with partner Rebecca Miles and three very enthusiastic kids, has put together an impressive display of lights that "dance" to six hit songs, including the Korean pop hit Gangnam Style by Psy, and a dubstep track by Skrillex.
Mr Gray said he picked up on the trend last year in Brisbane.
"We see a lot of static displays and after a while they all start to look the same," Mr Gray said.
"The kids love them, but when we saw a few synchronised displays we found we were the ones more excited by them; they appeal to more than just the kids."
Mr Gray said this theory rang true at their Brassall home.
"We get a lot of good reactions from kids, but a lot of adults have questions and are blown away by it," he said.
"The kids also get a lot of comments at school, and we have friends in north Brisbane who have heard stories of our lights being shared at school pick-ups, so they've definitely been popular."
Mr Gray said he used 25,000 bulbs and 2.5km of string lights to create the display, so organising the show was no easy feat.
"We needed specific controllers and special software that runs the lights," he said.
"We use three controllers that have 16 channels each, so that's 48 channels.
"In the past six months I've had to get my head around the software, and we put the lights up early to sort out any problems with getting the shows aligned."
You can see the display at 10 Calder Court, Brassall.
