Universe of Sound - Science Museum

The concept behind this piece is similar to the approach i wish to take with my own, the idea was to make the viewer feel the experience of being a conductor, being in control of an orchestra. To do this they filmed an orchestra using a large amount of cameras for various angles, close up on instruments or musicians and distant shots. However the experience you left with was that of third part person who has wandered through an orchestra rather than that of a conductor (also as one was also included in the footage). All of the videos were poster on various walls with information plaques. The concept of the piece became lost as the focus was taken away from the participator and given to the orchestra themselves.
