Modern digital multimedia and internet technology have radically changed the ways people find entertainment and discover new interests online, seemingly without any phys- ical or social barriers. Such new access paradigms are in sharp contrast with the traditional means of entertainment. An illustrative example of this is live music concert perfor- mances that are largely being attended by dedicated audi- ences only.
This papers introduces the PHENICX project, which aims at enriching traditional concert experiences by using state- of-the-art multimedia and internet technologies. The project focuses on classical music and its main goal is twofold: (a) to make live concerts appealing to potential new au- dience and (b) to maximize the quality of concert experi- ence for everyone. Concerts will then become multimodal, multi-perspective and multilayer digital artifacts that can be easily explored, customized, personalized, (re)enjoyed and shared among the users. The paper presents the main scientific objectives on the project, provides a state of the art review on related research and presents the main chal- lenges to be addressed.
