Sensory Concerts

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperResearchpeer-review

During the pandemic musicians have struggled to reach their audiences in new ways, when normal concerts are not possible. The "Sensory Concert" experiment investigates this dilemma through addressing two questions:

1) when the physical closeness at normal concerts are impossible, how can alternative concert-formats present the audience to other "touching" sensory experiences with music?

2) how might we use this situation to re-think ways of engaging vulnerable audience-groups that normally would not be able to attend a normal concert, into the concert hall through VR-technology?

During the workshop I will introduce the project, show the VR-experience (16 minutes long) and open for a discussion about sensory-closeness through technology.
