Possible to send midi when changing scenes to an LED strip to change colors?

Hi all,

I’m in the middle of a DIY amp head enclosure to house a power amp and would love to be able to throw in some controllable LEDs inside that respond to scene changes from the Quad Cortex via MIDI. Is this possible? Or is this ridiculous? Basically would be a DIY hughes & ketner amp head, but the LEDs respond to scene changes - for example, a clean scene would light up the enclosure blue and a heavy distortion scene would light up red.

Not sure if this would be possible with something like an arduino where a strip of leds are connected to it and listen for midi input from the scene changes of qc to change colors.
