Fantasia’s Magic Enchants Switzerland
The 21st Century Symphony Orchestra presented this animation masterpiece in front of almost 2000 people. The collection of classic animation short films was accompanied by a live performance of the related orchestral pieces.
One of the most iconic Fantasia episodes shows Mickey Mouse as a sorcerer’s apprentice, who is trying hard to control the magic he foolishly unleashes whilst trying to save himself a bit of work.
The producer of this memorable event, Art Productions Luzern, did not only have magic on their side, but the great experience of Moodbox GmbH’s Martin Kuhn as well.
Kuhn created a versatile setup based on coolux Pandoras Box technology that took care of the video playback, sound effects and additional optical click tracks for the 21st Century Symphony Orchestra’s chief conductor Ludwig Wicki. Using the Pandoras Box output synchronisation it was guaranteed that the conductor screen was always in perfect sync with the large audience screen. All the necessary equipment was provided by Auviso AG.
The premiere itself proved a big success with the enchanted audience, highlighting the great emotional intensity created through combining live orchestral music with state-of-the-art media playback techniques.
