augmented reality

 

Augmented reality (AR) appears on the smartphone display for each selected musical voice: a 3D animation that changes individually in colors and shapes.

In a very imaginative way, the animations implement the music notated in the orchestral score. As the third component in this Gesamtkunstwerk, they reinforce the sensual experience of the other two levels, music and art. What’s more, augmented reality is itself becoming a new contemporary art form in its own right.

Directed by Jana Günther, the animations were developed by Nadine Schwenk and Dina Saleem. Both are graduates of the Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg and work independently in motion design and animation in Germany.
