B-IT co-operates with Beethovenfest Bonn 2006 with the presentation of "Personal Orchestra". "Personal Orchestra" is a computer-based, interactive conducting system, giving you the opportunity to conduct the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. It has been developed by B-IT Professor Dr. Jan Oliver Borchers, chair of the Media Computing Group Media Computing Group at B-IT. Professor Borchers will explain the system first. Then the audience will be invited to try "Personal Orchestra". The system user will get a baton fitted with an infrared sensor with which he can conduct the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, which is projected with a beamer on a large screen. The Orchestra plays the music according to how they are conducted: faster, slower, louder or quieter. But be aware: If you do not conduct the Orchestra properly, the musicians will complain... Where and when can you make this conducting experience?
