Lum by Alfred Duarte
Alfred Duarte brings us another beautiful “wiimote instrument.” This one is built using Sony’s gesture controller, but the basic gestural control remains the same. In fact, this particular instrument bears a striking resemblance to gestural instruments from the 1980s, in the way that the distance between the two controllers acts as a sound parameter. Specifically, it resembles Buchla’s Lightning MIDI Controller and Max Mathews’ Radio Baton. Duarte calls his instrument LUM, and the video is a pretty demonstration of its capabilities.
