Interactive installation which allows the visitor to conduct a virtual orchestra, made up of the conductor's desk and thirteen audio-visual panels. Main attraction of the Mendelssohn Museum in Leipzig, Germany.
At the conductor's desk, visitors can choose from a range of compositions, conduct the orchestra in real time using a wooden baton, put together a
personalised orchestra by changing the instrumentation, scroll through the score, change the acoustics of the concert space, decide on a modern or historical tuning of the instruments, control
the visualization of the music on the panels, and set the lighting of the room.
