ABOUT ACO VIRTUAL
In 2012, the Australian Chamber Orchestra was filmed against green-screens, capturing audio and three-dimensional images of each individual musician. The result is this world-first interactive installation.
ACO VIRTUAL provides a unique understanding of how music is constructed. Built using state-of-the-art video technology, it features projected performance footage of 13 ACO musicians, with the sound of each coming from the direction of their projection. You are surrounded on all sides, with a touch-screen music stand and spotlight allowing you to spotlight the sound and visuals of the ensemble. You can highlight one particular musician, a section of instruments or your own desired selection of players.
The installation will be exhibited at galleries and museums in Australia and around the globe, offering audiences who otherwise wouldn’t have the opportunity a chance to get up close to Australia’s most dynamic and critically acclaimed orchestra.
