Insights in the real-time visualisation of Le Sacre du Printemps
Following the successful virtual staging of Richard Wagner’s Das Rheingold (2004) and Gustav Mahler’s Symphony Nr. 2 in C Minor (2006), the series of projects is now carried on by a collaborative effort of Ars Electronica Futurelab and the Brucknerfest with a performance of Le Sacre du Printemps (“The Rite of Spring”).
Susanne Scheel, curator and organizer of the VJ contest at the International Video Festival in Bochum, Germany, will briefly discuss the history and modern forms of music visualization. Horst Hörtner of the Ars Electronica Futurelab and media artist Klaus Obermaier will elaborate on the project’s technical and artistic aspects.

In Visualizing Stravinsky, the audience will attend a public rehearsal and experience how the Bruckner Orchestra conducted by Dennis Russell Davies and Karen Kamensek, dancer Julia Mach and the computer artists prepare for the performance of Igor Stravinsky’s Le Sacre du Printemps together with the accompanying visuals. What’s special about this performance is its interactive combination of orchestral music and computer visualizations.
On September 10, 2006 at 8 PM, Le Sacre du Printemps will be performed as part of the opening concert of the 2006 Brucknerfest in combination with the classical Klangwolke conducted by Dennis Russell Davies and Karen Kamensek.
