LiveNote mobile app (Philadelphia Orchestra)

It seems like the world of classical music has started to take advantage of the possibilities that mobile devices and related technologies have. Not only within the Phenicx projects, similar efforts are happening elsewhere as well. The Philadelphia Orchestra has been developing their own mobile application (called LiveNote) for live concert following. With Ezra Wiesner, IT department of the Philadelphia Orchestra, we exchanged our experiences on the mobile apps.

Last week we had a very active and fruitful involvement in ISMIR conference in Taipei.

PHENICX demo was also very successful, as we were able to show the prototypes and research demonstrators to the ISMIR community and get their impressions and feedback.You can find here a list of PHENICX papers and some photos of the event.


First end user experiment with mobile PHENICX interface: text guides during the event

Wed, 15/10/2014 - 15:00

Last week we’ve done the first of three exciting live experiments. The goal of PHENICX is to create a new digital concert experience. Part of this experience can also take place during an event in the venue. To get data on this use case, we did an experiment last week at the Concertgebouw: to guide listeners through the listening experience with timed text. The results were ‘interesting’ ;-)
