Simple circuit for light show

I am trying to improve the brightness of LED's, so I found out

that adding this piece of circuit:

increases brightness, beacuse LED's dont turn on and off fast with 20Hz (Lowest bass), but stay on more time. This is beacuse capacitor gets charged, and then discharged through resistor slower. (see picture). I didn't succesfuly integrated this in my circuit yet.
