A symphony to walk within

Like an exploded diagram of an engine, the Orchestra is dispersed across the many interconnecting rooms of a building, synchronised via radio link and CCTV feed of the conductor, they perform a live site-specific symphony to walk within.

Walking within this live orchestra, each individual audience member navigates a
sonic pathway through the symphony via a series of intimate encounters with musicians.

Exploring Architecture through the Orchestra and the Orchestra through Architecture

- Like Quantum physicists exploring the Uncertainty Principle, how this symphony is perceived is determined by how people choose to navigate in time & space, between 1-2-1 encounters and finding sweet spots between musicians and through the architecture, the score unfolds around you.

It was amazing!

Orchitecture is a site specific sound installation, which transforms the orchestral experience into an act of architectural exploration!

Conceived by Thor McIntyre-Burnie and developed via a long running collaboration with New London Orchestra.

COMING SOON - Orchitecture V4

Planning is currently in progress to create a new version in response to Covid-19, enabling a social distanced audience to experience a symphony and a historic building to welcome audiences in a whole new way.
