Background info

On August 15, 2014, Thorsten Karrer, Leonhard Lichtschlag and Jan Borchers set up a permanent ready-to-run version of the Personal Orchestra exhibit. It’s in the project space where the large multitouch table used to be. Instructions how to demo it are above, and on a printed sheet on the exhibit.

If you like, give it a shot and try conducting the Vienna Philharmonic! This is the same system we installed in the House of Music Vienna in 2000, and updated in 2009. It’s been running there as a successful exhibit since 2000.

This exhibit must always be ready to demo. Because of this, please ask Jan Borchers before removing any hardware from the exhibit. Thanks!
