Konzerthausorchester Berlin, Jörg Widmann
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).
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).
With the interactive AR app “Konzerthaus Plus”, you can also enjoy our digital applications in the comfort of your own home. Simply download the app to your smartphone and discover digitally enhanced spaces with the Virtual Quartet, in the new season brochure or on special postcards. Experience, hear and discover even more of the Konzerthaus!
In the app and at the following links, you’ll find “download packages” which you can download, print at home and then scan with the app:
Our AR App "Konzerthaus Plus" won silver in the category Special Genre at the Annual Multimedia Award. Congratulations!
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.
The exhibition remains closed until further notice due to the current pandemic.
The project is funded by the European Union.
The project "Interactive Composition" is supported by “experimente#digital” – a cultural initiative of the Aventis Foundation.
