Virtual Reality (VR) is rapidly expanding into new fields.
Now, it provides an opportunity to experience music in an intense and immersive way.
In collaboration with Turku Philharmonic Orchestra (TFO), 360Mediahouse has implemented a virtual concert that enables the audience to enjoy the musical performance as if they were among the musicians on stage. The virtual concert was recorded using a 360-degree video camera and edited with the 360Editor platform, and it can be viewed with or without VR goggles.
The TFO virtual concert premiered in connection with the Open Orchestra concert held on 14 November 2019 at the Turku Concert Hall.
In spring 2020, TFO will first take VR concerts to service housing units. Then, through various associations and institutions, to a wider audience of people who, for different reasons, are unable to attend concerts at the Concert Hall. –‘The aim is to enhance the availability and accessibility of our orchestra services and to encourage institutions to take a more active role in utilising digital solutions in order to provide residents with cultural experiences as part of well-being services’, explains Producer Heidi Pulkkinen of Turku Philharmonic Orchestra.
