Imagine standing on stage surrounded by the Australian Chamber Orchestra’s virtuoso musicians, watching bows and fingers fly, feeling the power of the bass line, or hearing the exquisite tones of Artistic Director Richard Tognetti’s Guarneri del Gesù violin up close.
ACO Virtual, the Australian Chamber Orchestra’s ground-breaking virtual orchestra installation offers this, and more. It is an interactive, immersive experience of sublime music by Bach, Grieg, Roger Smalley and Astor Piazzolla, running on a loop.
Stand right in among thirteen projections of individual musicians and, with a touch-screen device, choose how you want to hear and see them play, hearing the separate musicians or all of them, and seeing how they all fit together. You can even bring your own instrument and play along.
Audiences of all ages across Australia have been blown away by the experience.
