Live classical music is facing considerable challenges. How can philharmonic orchestras, organizations that are heavily rooted in the past, become more democratic and better connected to the societies they are situated in?
Through collaboration across institutional borders and knowledge domains, the Designing Classical Music Experiences project developed new spatial and mediated audience experiences. The project involved musicians, designers, researchers, students, audience members – and many others – in the design and development processes.
The outcome of the project is presented in the book How the Lion Learned to Moonwalk.
