If you’re not sure about orchestral music, or about going to a classical concert, the the Philharmonia Orchestra’s Digital Residency is FOR YOU 🙂 Opening at the Bargehouse on London’s Southbank on 03.11.2009, the Re-rite project will:
“reveal every section of the orchestra performing The Rite of Spring simultaneously “as Live” thoughout a four-storey warehouse building. The public will be able to sit amongst the horn players, perform in the percussion section and take up the baton and control sections of the Orchestra as they play”.
Says the Philharmonia’s Principal Consuctor Esa-Pekka Salonen, who developed the concept with AmbITion champion Richard Slaney – also the Philharmonia Orchestra’s Digital Department boss:
“Being inside an orchestra, experiencing the sensation of 101 players taking on this iconic music is one of the biggest adrenalin rushes and one that I want to share with the world. Now we’re doing just that.”
Re-Rite will be open 3-15 November from 10am – 6pm (8pm Thurs & Fri).
You’ll also be able to experience it online from 3rd November onwards!!
