SONIC TALK 092 A sultry afternoon in Bath and one of the rare occasions when I'm joined in the studio - this weeks guest on the spare chair is Richard Evans who's had a long affiliation with Peter Gabriel and Real World studios - just back from a stint recording at a Serbian monastery. Staying very much in the UK this week, on the line we have Mark Tinley who's worked with Duran Duran and Nick Rhodes for many years and Dave Spiers from GForce Software, who's recovering from Labrinthitis by playing tennis, both real and virtual. Speaking of virtual tennis, we take a look at the new Wii MotionPlus addition for the WiiMote which allegedly ads true 1:1 motion control and increases the accuracy of the 3D positioning and it's musical possibilities - it's demonstrated by the new WiiMusic titles with people "playing" various instruments at the recent E3 demo. Then we talk about virtuoso drummers - with plenty of drummer jokes, then on to famous sounds, green technology and finally David Beckham in the Sharpies ad. Remember...
