Virtual Konzerthaus

In cooperation with the University of Applied Sciences Berlin (HTW), the Konzerthaus has been developing innovative music mediation concepts for classical music in the digital realm since August 2016. The focus is on immersion in virtual worlds, virtual reality (VR), as well as expanding reality through virtual elements, also known as augmented reality (AR). 

Interactive Composition

In 2021, our concert hall will have been standing on Gendarmenmarkt for two full centuries – the perfect reason to celebrate with an interactive commissioned work. The aim here is an interactive installation that explores design possibilities along the interfaces of new music, visual art, virtual reality and augmented reality. The jury has reached a decision: Mark Barden (composition) and Julian Bonequi (visual design).

Awards

Our AR App "Konzerthaus Plus" won silver in the category Special Genre at the Annual Multimedia Award. Congratulations!

The Digital Exhibition

Would you like to stand in the middle of the orchestra and look over the conductor’s shoulder? Or switch halls with a single click? This is hardly possible in reality, but it is in the digital world! After months of joint conceptualisation and programming with the University of Applied Sciences Berlin (HTW), the Konzerthaus opened a digital exhibition in the vestibule in spring 2018. Seven installations convey the magic and precision of musical interplay, as well as the architecture and history of the Konzerthaus. From spring 2019 the exhibition will be accessible at top of our staircase during the daily opening hours of „EinBlick frei“. Admittance is free. During the winter months, the exhibition will be traveling through various libraries in Spandau, Friedrichshain and Neukölln.

Orchestra game

Where does the bassoon sit? And where are the double basses? Our orchestra game introduces younger visitors in particular to the instruments and the structure of a large symphony orchestra, which is not always easy to get a grasp on.
