Conduct, play and step inside a virtual Philharmonia Orchestra, joining 132 musicians and Esa-Pekka Salonen, the Orchestra's Principal Conductor and Artistic Advisor, performing one of the most spectacular pieces of music ever written. Universe of Sound is an extraordinary free interactive digital installation, allowing you to explore an orchestra from the inside out as they perform Holst's The Planets. Using giant visual displays, touch screens, unconventional projecting surfaces, movement-based interaction and planetarium-style projections, you can take part as musicians, conductors, arrangers and composers.
Universe of Sound has been created by Esa-Pekka Salonen and the Philharmonia Orchestra. Its première will be presented in partnership with the Science Museum in London from 23 May-8 July and will then tour to UK cities including Birmingham and Canterbury in 2013, before being developed for international touring.
