re-rite: Audience Response in Dortmund
RE-RITE is the Philharmonia Orchestra's digital residency. With the guidance of Principal Conductor and Artistic Advisor Esa-Pekka Salonen, and through the innovative use of audio and video projections RE-RITE allows you to conduct, play and step inside a virtual orchestra. This ground-breaking project shows the Philharmonia's musicians performing every section of The Rite of Spring ‘as live’. You can sit amongst the horn players, perform in the percussion section or take up the baton and control sections of the Orchestra as they play.
Since its conception in 2009, RE-RITE has toured to Leicester, Lisbon in Portugal, Dortmund in Germany, Tianjin in China, Izmir in Turkey, Salzburg in Austria and Hamburg in Germany.
"Being inside an orchestra, experiencing the sensation of 101 players taking on this iconic music is one of the biggest adrenalin rushes, and one that I want to share with the world. Now we're doing just that."
Esa-Pekka Salonen, Principal Conductor and Artistic Advisor
