The Open Symphony project reimagines the music experience for a digital age, fostering alliances between performer and audience and our digital selves. It has been developped recently by Mathieu Barthet (QMUL) with musician Kate Hayes and QMUL Media and Art Technology (MAT) students Yongmeng Wu and Leshao Zhang.
We are glad to announce that the project has just been selected as one of six UK projects to join the Audience Labs programme which is an audience development programme designed to test new ways of communicating and presenting new music to audiences.
Open Symphony is also part of the FAST project (see Demonstrator description). It investigates how to embrace digital technology in the live music environment to engage both audience and performers and develop new platforms for music composition, performance and listening.
