Remediating Live Orchestra and Opera as Conjoint New Media Experiences Through Curatorial Design

Kevin Purcell (DMA)

This research will develop design practices, or strategies, that provide relevant, creative solutions to expand the live orchestral and musical theatre experience beyond the common practice of stage performance alone. The intention is to put audiences at the heart of flexible, personalized, digitally-delivered, media experiences in entirely new ways with responsive storytelling conjointly integrated with live performance. It is proposed this can be achieved either by remediating the live presentation of music for orchestra and the theatrical stage as asynchronous multi-platform storytelling narratives or, synchronously, during live-performance.
