Playing with the orchestra

1 August 2014

………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Imagine standing on stage during a live performance by the Australian Chamber Orchestra.

Cutting-edge audio-visual installation ACO VIRTUAL takes you there. Built using state-of-the-art technology, ACO VIRTUAL features projections of 13 musicians surrounding you on all sides, with the sound of each player coming from the direction of their projection. It’s like standing in the middle of the Orchestra during a concert. Immerse yourself in performances of music by Bach, Grieg, Smalley and Piazzolla or take charge of the band via a controller inside the installation. You can choose to spotlight one musician or many; listen to just the violins; or just the bass – the possibilities are endless.

The installation is currently open to the public at the eMerge Gallery at James Cook University’s Townsville Campus. Admission is free.
