Realised innovation in classical music 

Sonolux producties

‘Love is On’ is een multimedia concert met symfonieorkest waarin muziek wordt ingezet om singles aan elkaar te koppelen.
Met de komst van de huidige technieken zoals Virtual en Augmented Reality is er nu voor de eerste keer de mogelijkheid om het orkest en het verhaal samen op het podium te presenteren.
Het emoticoncert is spectaculaire en veelzijdige productie waarin grote 3D emoticons zweven in de lucht. Door middel van holografische projecties lijkt de emoticon een levend wezen dat interacteert met musici en acteurs.
Virtual Gallery brengt de wereld van kunst en techniek samen te brengen in een zowel fysieke als virtuele omgeving.
Met 500 andere zangers van over de hele wereld met een professioneel orkest spelen in het iconische Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, dat gebeurt Once In A Lifetime!
