Beethoven Recomposed - Live Excerpts

Watch on Vimeo

The audiovisual project Beethoven recomposed commissioned by german broadcasting company WDR is a unique approach to make the music of Ludwig van Beethoven tangible for people with and without hearing impairment.

In order to let the whole audience experience a classical concert with their eyes, the symphony was translated into a visual journey through three generative worlds following the melodic motion, rhythm and changes of mood. These visuals were projected on a large monolitic canvas hanging above the orchestra. On each side of the canvas three LED strips were added to open up the stage scenery in form of the orchestral pit. While the projection aimed at telling a coherent story and reflect the narrative and emotional aspects of the music, the lower resolution and different light intensity of the led strips was used to convey the music in a rather didactive way.
