Orchestra Volante

E-mail Print

Dedicated to the celebration of Santa Cecilia symphonic orchestra centenary, an innovative piece of interactive art, projected and realized by Studio Azzurro, has been presented at the Spazio Risonanze of the Auditorium Parco della Musica, 11 October 2008, in Rome.
Flying musicians, free entities in the space, fluctuating bodies with sounds, overcame all constraints of the force of gravity. Virtual players performed acrobatics of ethereal beauty with other musicians. The public interacted with each musician as an orchestra director does by recalling musician attention through a sensible wand, piloting exit points, musical and physical trajectories of flying musicians.

The multimedia path, called "Orchestra Volante", paid homage to the music as an emotional evocative experience elevating musicians and audience to an hyperspace whose magic starts from the hands of improvised directors. This has been a perfect example of how CALLAS technology is able to support specific performance features.
