Program notes can be pretty boring, huh? What if you could have program notes that came alive, perfectly timed to the music?
MIT is working on that! There’s a new app called ConcertCue, created by the MIT Music Technology Lab and Radius‘s clarinetist, Eran Egozy. You can read about the app’s first outing at an MIT concert honoring David Bowie this spring. The BSO has also successfully used the app for one of its concerts at Tanglewood.
Radius is thrilled to present a recent work by Boston composer Elena Ruehr on its November 18 concert at Longy. The work is called LUCY and imagines the life of our Australopithecine ancestor. Using a ConcertCue presentation curated by BSO program annotator Robert Kirzinger, listeners will enjoy synchronized streaming program notes that include text, images, and other rich media, precisely timed to important events in the music itself.
We need YOU to help us test it out at our final rehearsal before the performance on Wednesday evening, November 15 at 8pm at the New School of Music, 25 Lowell Street in Cambridge. All attendees will receive complimentary tickets to the November 18 performance at Longy. All you need is a smartphone!
RSVP to Jennifer Montbach, email@example.com by November 13. Space is limited.
