NOTE: we are embedding the sensory concert video here to supplement the session recording:

During the pandemic musicians have struggled to reach their audiences in new ways, when normal concerts are not possible. The "Sensory Concert" experiment investigates this dilemma through addressing two questions:

1) when the physical closeness at normal concerts are impossible, how can alternative concert-formats present the audience to other "touching" sensory experiences with music?

2) how might we use this situation to re-think ways of engaging vulnerable audience-groups that normally would not be able to attend a normal concert, into the concert hall through VR-technology?

During the workshop I will introduce the project, show the VR-experience (16 minutes long) and open for a discussion about sensory-closeness through technology.
