Organ Hero?

My oldest son, MJ, is big-time into the video game Guitar Hero. From what I understand, the object of this game is to play the guitar part various rock tunes as they are displayed on the screen, using this guitar-shaped controller with colored buttons instead of strings. The more accurate you are, the better you score. Rather much like Dance Dance Revolution, except for your fingers.

Last night, I was made privy to (thanks to a discussion on the Utata group on Flickr), a really cool YouTube video of what would appear to be a graphical representation of the classical (and classic) Toccata and Fugue in D Minor by J. S. Bach. It sounded cool and looked even better. My first thought is that it was kinda reminiscent of a round of Guitar Hero.

What do you think? Is the world ready for Organ Hero?


  1. I had the exact same idea when I just watched the exact same video (and therefore did a google search to see if others had too, which apperently is the case).
