Six Pacmen is a musical rendition of a classic game


Tacit Group, an audio-visual performance group, created a massive, musical version of Pac-Man using six performers.

"Six Pacmen" features "Six Pianos" by Steve Reich, composed in 1973, set to the digital wanderings of six iconic, yellow figures. Performers travel around the level to collect specific items.

"One level is complete once six performers collect all the items, thereby going to the next measure of the piece," the video description reads. "In some levels (or measures) appears a ghost that disturbs the performer. Performers can finish the game by playing all measures."

Check out the video above to see "Six Pacmen." More of Tacit Group's work is available on its official site.
