AN IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCE – IN THE HEART OF THE ORCHESTRA

With its 360-degree video the Orchestre des Pays de Savoie offers a unique experience.

In an innovative, experimental approach, the Orchestre des Pays de Savoie called on the agency Alpium to film the orchestra in 360-degree video during the Beethoven-Schumann concert given in Annecy on 25 November 2017.

Recent technology has enabled video recordings where a view in every direction is recorded at the same time, shot using an omnidirectional camera. During playback the viewer has control of the viewing direction using a mouse or a viewing device such as a headset.

The Orchestre des Pays de Savoie is one of the first orchestras to make a 360-degree video, thus enabling viewers to listen to an excerpt from the second movement of Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony as if they were on stage during the concert. An amazing immersive experience!
