Wii like to make beats…

Wii remote

Nerds are killing it right now. This dude The Amazing Rolo has created a loop machine that controls loops in Garage Band using a Nintendo Wii remote. Check the video and if you think you have the skills you can actually download the software here. Unfortunately for me (or do I mean fortunately?) I don’t have a Wii and I haven’t even played regular games on one, but if this software is any indication, Nintendo has done a lot more than just revolutionize the gaming industry.

I Love Nerds!

I went to Siggraph when it was in Boston last year and saw some amazing art/music/technology pieces, but non impressed me more than reactable, “a multi-user electro-acoustic music instrument with a tabletop tangible user interface” developed by a group of Spaniards. When Cnyce found this demo, this demo and this improvisation on YouTube I had to post them. Probably the coolest thing about this instrument is the ability to collaborate/perform simultaneously at multiple locations, which basically leads to endless possibilities.

But, enough nerding around. If you want to party tonight we are playing and GoodLife as a trial run for our upcoming Future Sound Of Boston weekly. The idea here is to combine past influences with future sounds and we’re going to have a ridic lineup of local talent plus monthly out-of-town guests. More info on that soon…
