Mendelssohn Effektorium - Virtual Orchestra for Mendelssohn-Bartholdy Museum Leipzig
The museum visitor enters the room to find himself at the conductors stand with digital music notes and an orchestra of 13 speakers in front of him. Each speaker represents a different group of instruments. The visitor is given a conductors´ stick, and the concert may begin. On the repertoire are works of Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy. By browsing the electronic note-pad the visitor freely chooses which work he/she wishes to conduct, and by swinging the conductors stick decides upon the tempo.
