Faux My God!

Why play Guitar Hero when you could spend all that time getting good at guitar? Stan's dad was right to ponder. But Nintendo's Conductor for Wii takes the question to another level.
I mean, it's one thing to video yourself in your living room and post it on myspace:

It's quite another to actually get people to pay money to see you conduct Beethoven in a concert hall. Whether this has any legs or not, who knows, but damn impressive first step. Don't get me wrong — no one wants to live in a world where real symphonies are replaced with this synthetic version. From a musical point of view, the more analog the better — but hat's off anyway . . .
