"Conductor Hero"
I could see a Kinect game where you play the part of a small community orchestra.

Starting off you little troupe of musicians has a limited selection of music they can play. There's also a smaller selection of instruments. The goal of each concert is to properly conduct the orchestra as it plays through various classical music pieces.

The more concerts you do (and the better the concert goes), the more money you earn. With more money you can purchase more challenging music and hire more musicians (adding more instruments in the process). It would work similarly to Dance Central (would be a form of a dancing game I suppose) where you have to time your arm movements just right to get the right section of the orchestra to play the music as it should.

As you get more fame from your conducting skills, you move up to more well-known orchestras and play in more famous venues.

Part of me made this up because I thought it would be silly but, then again, I do think if done properly, something like this could actually be pretty decent.

The fact that the Sun is maize and the sky is blue is neither in our control, nor is something we fraudulently contrived. It just shows that God has excellent taste in colors.

It's not that silly, there's already at least 1 conducting game on the Wii called Wii Music Orchestra, lol!

ah, I didn't know such a beast already existed. I wonder how well it sold.

I looked into it and it's actually a mode in Wii Music. Wii Music has amazingly sold 3 million! I found another Wii conducting game called Nodame Cantabile: Dream * Orchestra but that was only released in Japan and it only sold 7,500, lol!

Even though it has been done before, I think this idea could be EVEN BETTER with Kinect than with the Wii. You could actually have a chance to learn conducting.

Let's hope a developer's listening to your cry for this game Big Grin.

RE: "Conductor Hero"
That would be an amazing idea, I've been waiting for something like this. But I would like some more features to the "Conductor Hero" game (Not a really decent title if you ask me Sad ) The other features I'd also like would be the ability to actually conduct or pretend conduct your own music and music videos (orchestrated, any mix, any genre) in your Xbox 360 Console. And after you do so, you can have a choice to share the video(s) (of yourself or game footage) to Facebook, Twitter, Kinect Share, etc. with sound, and obviously have the choice to delete it if it's not good enough. That would be an awesome feature wouldn't it? It's almost like one of Wii Music's features, but to the MAX!!! I mean think about it. SmileSmile (This is a reply to "Clemens")

Exclamation RE: "Conductor Hero"
Your wish has almost come true! Big Grin I say almost because this isn't on the Xbox 360 (yet at least), you have to go to the Science Museum in London (although I'm sure it will turn up in other museums around this country and the world before long) to conduct with Kinect:

http://www.sci-tech-today.com/news/Virtu...000FW2HYIW

Quote:The exhibit also gives visitors a chance to see parts of the orchestra in an up-close way which wouldn't otherwise have been possible, focusing on a harpist's hands or a violinist's fingers. One camera was even attached to a trombone's slide, whipping back and forth as the brass section got into gear.

"None of the musicians can get away with anything," remarked the Philharmonia's principle percussionist, Kevin Hathway, who was on hand to demonstrate an interactive drum set.

Would-be maestros may like the virtual conductor program the best.

Several installations at the museum use Microsoft's Kinect technology to capture the hand movements of visitors who stand in specially-made pods. Raise your left hand and the orchestra -- which appears on a set of television screens -- plays louder. Speed the movement of your right hand and the tempo of the music increases. Get the movements wrong and the musicians get out of tune. Get it really wrong and a computerized audience starts coughing politely.

The conduct-yourself exhibits are likely to be popular, but Felton seemed to like the close-ups the best -- particularly the ones that showed musicians resting between movements, their hands slack but their faces alert.

He stopped at a video of organist Richard Pearce, normally hidden behind his massive instrument, far from the back-and-forth of the conductor's baton.

"You never get to see that guy play!" Felton said.

Universe of Sound opens Wednesday. Admission is free.
