RE-RITE, the Philharmonia Orchestra's Digital Residency, allows members of the public to conduct, play and step inside the Philharmonia Orchestra with Esa-Pekka Salonen through audio and video projections of musicians performing Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring. The films on this channel (in English, German and Portuguese) help describe the experience.

The project first opened to the public at the Bargehouse on London's South Bank on 3 November 2009, the project shows every section of the Orchestra performing The Rite of Spring simultaneously 'as live'. The public are able to sit amongst the horn players, perform in the percussion section and take up the baton and control sections of the Orchestra as they play.

Since then RE-RITE has visted Leicester in April 2010 and Lisbon, Portugal in January 2011.

The next RE-RITE event will take place in Dortmund, Germany in November 2011.

This ambitious project, made possible through the support of the Paul Hamlyn Foundation, is the brainchild of the Philharmonia's Principal Conductor and Artistic Advisor Esa-Pekka Salonen, who has developed the concept with the Philharmonia Orchestra's Digital Department.
