Six Pacmen turns Pac-Man into a musical conductor (sort of)


"Six Pacmen" is a performance piece from Tacit Group that fuses the arcade game Pac-Man with the 1973 musical composition "Six Pianos" by Steve Reich. In this twist on the Namco classic, the song "Six Pianos" is played one measure at a time. Players must move their Pac-Man character around a shared level with five other players, each working to collect an object in the maze. Once a set of objects has been collected, the song advances to the next measure of the song.

And who still says video games can't be art?
