Ligeti Hero

In Rock Band 3, the player can use a 25-key wireless piano keyboard as a controller, which is what is going on in the video above. Though I could never get into the Rock Band games, the idea of a 20th century composer game pack intrigues me . How about a collection of Morton Feldman tunes for Rock Band?

Here's a tangential free idea: Gamification of practice for musicians (on real instruments). You could draw from Rock Band's Skittles-ish display, Organ Muse's MIDI pageturning, and some sort of time management software, to create a program that actually boosts practice productivity. Of course, it would probably have to block Wi-Fi to actually get anything done...
