Be amongst the musicians, with WalkThruMusic

A JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE ORCHESTRA, FROM REAL TO VIRTUAL

Have you ever dreamed of one day crossing to the other side of the mirror and hearing music played by a symphony orchestra from in the very midst of the musicians, at the heart of the musical score? Now, with the interactive 3D Walkthrumusic* application, your dream can be reality! Equipped with a smartphone/tablet and headphones (supplied by the Festival), you will physically wander about in an immersive sonic and visual environment, watching individual instruments appear, in augmented reality, on your screen. You experience differences in distance, volume and acoustic reverberation depending on your changing position in space.

*Walkthrumusic is available free on AppStore (IOS) and Google Play (Android)

Discover virtual dance!

DANCE PERFORMANCE

The opening of Idem Altera falls within the familiar context of a dance performance – but this proves to be just the starting point for the spectators. Audience members are soon invited to literally “join the performance” and participate actively, as players in the creation of a unique, collective encounter with sound, movement, music and dance.
