In a traveling installation which is unique in the world, the Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra combines music, visual arts and animation in an augmented reality to create a collective immersive art experience.

In the middle of the city, on the asphalt, a work of art – a “floor graphic”. Entry desired!

Become part of the orchestra with your smartphone, bring animations to life on the display, immerse yourself, hear, see, feel, interact with others – that is resonance!

The “Resonance” project is a place of encounter and interactive experience for everyone. It changes depending on the number of people participating and is like a reflection of our society:
Everyone has a vote. And every voice has an influence on the sound.

“Resonance” is moving: from the small palace square in Stuttgart to the partner city of Strasbourg (60 years of town twinning!), on to Saarbrücken and to many other places.


The floor graphic is a 140 square meter walk-in work of art by the New York artist and native of Strasbourg Marc Fornes – an exclusive commission from the Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra.


The Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra has recorded a cult piece of postminimal music for the “Resonanz” project: “Shaker Loops” by John Adams.

augmented reality

Artistic animations increase the musical experience through a constantly new play of colors and shapes. As a pioneer in the field of digitalisation, the SKO shows the creative potential of augmented reality (AR).

#resonance wanders


On the occasion of the celebrations for “60 years of town twinning Stuttgart – Strasbourg” “Resonance” began on July 7th 2022 on the small palace square in Stuttgart. 

Interested parties could join the augmented reality project here free of charge and at any time of the day or night until August 26th 2022.


“Resonance” creates connection!

Stuttgart’s 60-year partnership with the European city of Strasbourg is celebrated with this innovative SKO project.

“Resonance” can be experienced from September 25th (opening concert) to October 31st, 2022 on the square in front of the Palais de Justice (Quai Finkmatt).

#music mediation


It is in the nature of resonance that it creates connections and thus offers as many references as there are participants.

In addition to the components of music, art and animation in augmented reality, public discussion and music education are key components of the SKO concept.
