In "You Saw Me Tomorrow" Sachiko performs what she calls "WiiSight", a real-time moving image improvisation technique she has developed using Nintendo Wii remote controller and Apple's webcam iSight. All visual information in "WiiSight" is taken live through built-in iSight on her laptop and processed live via Max/Jitter. No recorded material is used in "WiiSight". The combination of "live video" and "remote controller" creates a true junction between real-time physical movements and visual manipulation in a live performance, where the two elements invoke, affect and merge in a confluence.


To Sachiko's "WiiSight" visual improvisation, Magnus creates EAM soundscape based on a loop technique with pre-composed sounds. The structure of the soundscape creation in real-time in relation to the "WiiSight" visual will be the focus of his performance.

"WiiSight" was developed in 2010 at USF in Bergen, where Sachiko was an artist-in-residence during the autumn.
