You're in the band: virtual reality's orchestral future
Cyber-orchestras seem to be gaining traction at the moment, though the Philharmonia’s project is a very different beast from the BBC’s Virtual Orchestra, which invited the contribution of more than 1,000 amateur musicians to the Last Night of the Proms via their smartphones. Instead, it pitches the viewer into the heart of a top-flight, professional ensemble as it performs the final movement of Sibelius’s fifth symphony.

The realism of the experience, developed by the Philharmonia in association with London-based VR specialists Inition, is extraordinary. You sense the tension build while wandering backstage, watching musicians tune amid catering tables and the alien sarcophagi of the double-bass cases. Then there’s the intensity of the performance itself, which feels more like going into battle than listening to a concert. The proximity of bows and trombone slides is so close it’s impossible not to flinch. Finally you arrive at Sibelius’s great, slashing conclusion of six massive chords punctuated by silence. The whites-of-the-eyes perspective gives Salonen the almost-maniacal look of an emperor pronouncing execution.
