Re-rite. Be the orchestra.

Some days ago I’ve visited the powerful experience ‘Re-rite. Be the Orchestra’, by Esa-Pekka Salonen in collaboration with the Philharmonic Orchestra London.

The installation allows members of the public to conduct, play and step inside the Philharmonia Orchestra with Esa-Pekka Salonen through audio and video projections of musicians performing Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring.
The orchestra experience is exhibited till 20 november in the ‘Dortmunder U’, the former brewery of Unions Bier in Dortmund, Germany.

Esa-Pekka Salonen, Principal Conductor and Artistic Advisor about the project:

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.’
