The Wii Remote as a Musical Instrument: Technology and Case Studies

Document Thumbnail

The inexpensive and ubiquitous Remote for the Nintendo Wii game system uses a combination of technologies that are highly suited for music generation and control. These include position tracking, tilt and motion measurement in three dimensions, a two-dimensional joystick (with its companion "Nunchuk"), and multiple buttons. A new accessory, the "MotionPlus", adds gyroscopic sensing and another, the "Balance Board" adds body-position sensing. Use of the system in several musical performance contexts is examined including conducting a synthetic orchestra and playing expressive single and multi-user instruments.
