Fun with LEDs

I want to start messing with LEDs; I have two (similar) projects in mind. I want a strip of multi-colored LEDs to respond to music. And second, inspired in part by this thread, I'm interested in learning about turning sound-responsive LEDs into a costume. I imagine those two projects are pretty similar, other than needing a portable power supply for the latter, right? So, can anyone help me figure out what I should get to start with? [more inside]

Help me find a light graffiti machine

While in various locales I have seen what what appear to be advertisments or graffiti that appears to be light generated that is projected onto a wall. I would like to use this technology for a sign for my business. I am not able to find anything with my google talents. Can someone point me in the right direction to locate and price this technology?
