Wii Will Rock You - Make Article

An article I recently wrote on using the Nintendo Wiimote as a music controller is now published in issue #14 of Make Magazine.

It's on page 145. I take readers through various set-ups for using the Wiimote to control music software, soft-synths, and even MIDI retrofits of some of my favorite circuit bends. Make was kind enough to give spot on their site for links to the freeware, software, videos, and other bits of associated information, click here to read more.

Also, if you'd like to hear the results of musical experiments with the Wiimote, my band the Painful Leg Injuries have released a free download album called The Rich Man's Godforesaken Driver's Seat, with 13 tracks of Wiimote-controllled music.
