Welcome to PHENICX (Performances as Highly Enriched aNd Interactive Concert eXperiences)! PHENICX is a STREP project funded by the European Commision. The project will make use of the state-of-the-art digital multimedia and internet technology to make the traditional concert experiences rich and universally accessible: concerts will become multimodal, multi-perspective and multilayer digital artefacts that can be easily explored, customized, personalized, (re)enjoyed and shared among the users. The main goal is twofold: (a) to make live concerts appealing to potential new audience and (b) to maximize the quality of concert experience for everyone.

PHENICX will last 36 months starting the 1st of February 2013 and the partner institutions involved are TU Delft, Universitäet of Linz (JKU), Stichting Koninklijk Concertgebouworkest (RCO), VideoDock BV (VD), Oesterreichische Studiengesellschaft Fuer Kybernetik (OFAI) and Escola Superior de Música de Catalunya (ESMUC).

The kickoff meeting will take place on February 19th-21st in Barcelona, Spain.
