How people feel about classical music now


late at night driving in your car

to a destionation you've never been too

you're tired and cold

no idea how to get to the place of town you need to get to

you yearn for orientaton

this is how people feel about classical music now

declining and aging adience

avg age 56-70 years old


younger people feel distant to the heroic situations of classical music

sitting uncofmrtable for hours without a visual treat

feeling lost, in the outskirts of big peice of music, hard to grasp, so many languagues in music, need to find orientation

how to find the gems

that take your breath away

in 2013

pull out your cellphone to find your way

phone filters out a lot of information

the gps comes to pick us up

in music, the score is the map

contains tons of information for artists and experts

we would like an artistic GPS

"the GPS for music"

the music animation machine

""Music Worth Watching""

how it works

in 3D!

for example, sonata for keyboard from Johan Sebastian Bach using MAM, beginning of the first arabesk by claude debussy, as a score, as MAM visual

syncing the visuals using a human device, music needs to breathe, old VW window crank

only the beginning?

we're living on a creative goldmine

how about...

condutor visualzing a piece

integraton with Google Glass

enjoying creativity and vision of extraordinary and fellow humans is in reach of a new generation
