Jonas Hummel Presents Projectionist Orchestra

“Fields” and “Projectionist Orchestra” are two experimental music pieces exploring new areas of musical composition and audience participation through the use of mobile technology. These two projects stem from a desire to reconfigure the audience-performer relationship, and encourage shared listening experiences and sympathetic communication within non-hierarchical performance structures. They were first realized at CTM Music Makers hacklab, Berlin, 2014.
