Four Dimensions is a work for a live orchestra (including EWI in the ‘winds’) and electronics. The electronics are pre-recorded. How will the electronics synch up to the orchestra during the performance?

I asked Marc Pinsky, the Max Engineer, to develop our use of a Nintendo Wii game controller (called a Wii-mote) to be used by the conductor, Dirk Meyer as a conducting baton – doubling as a baton for the orchestra and at the same time providing a useable pulse to control the electronics playback. Some of the movement data generated by the Wii baton is also used by our Visual Artist, Nathan Selikoff.

On Monday March 12, Maestro Meyer and I finally got together for him to try out the device. Marc Pinsky and Nathan Selikoff both ‘attended’ the meeting via an iChat video conference. We made some important decisions, explained in the video.——
