You may remember an interview I did with live controller whiz-kid Gustavo Bravetti where he explained how he’s rigged up alternative controllers to Ableton Live, namely a “powerglove,” electronic drum kit, and LED lights. This time he’s hacked Wii-motes into a Live controller and drives the crowd at Tribaltech 2009 into a fury of nerdery.
Friend of the Site Gustavo Bravetti is back, getting the young Brazilian boys and girls on their feet with his virtual reality glove and Wiimotes and gesturally-controlled electronica. Gustavo sends us this video from the 2009 Tribaltech SC Edition in Campinas. Having seen a lot of DJs take the easy way out at festivals in front of throngs of people, it’s great to see someone really play his laptop – and while some of us, ahem, look goofy waving Wiimotes around, Gustavo makes it look good.
