In Offworld’s effort to become the official repository for every oddball Super Mario Bros hack in existence: inconceivably named artists Marc Sciglimpaglia and Phoenix Toews created this Mario remix that lets you control on-screen action with “claps, singing, guitar and drums.”
The hack was made with Sciglimpaglia’s “nin.reflux” software that can manipulate NES roms as a Max/MSP plugin, and apparently (though I couldn’t dig up any video footage!) was also used at Sciglimpaglia’s 2008 exhibit for:
“Marble Meditation”, an installation where participants can control the game Marble Madness collectively with sound, and “Nightmare Mario”, a fully playable version of Super Mario Brothers with a reworked audiovisual structure, portraying the game world filtered through a vivid post-apocalyptic nightmare.
