Forming part of the Music Boxes exhibition at MediaCityUK for the Manchester International Festival, Maestro was developed by magneticNorth using Microsoft Kinect technologies and lets the audience control the tempo and dynamic of the orchestra using nothing but their hands, just like a conductor.
Using razor sharp HD video and 3D surround sound, the audience are given an immersive and fun opportunity to conduct the famous orchestra. The concept and initial prototype was first created by the BBC R&D team who partnered with mN to develop the user experience, design and technical solution.
This is the latest in a string of BBC projects from magneticNorth, including Desert Island Discs and The Proms 2011.
