This week, the European Concert Hall Organization (ECHO) is convening its seminar on music education, The Art of Music Education Volume III, Hamburg 25-27 January 2012. Tod Machover will be addressing the gathering on Friday, January 27, to speak about “New technologies for audience engagement.” In addition to reviewing past projects (“Brain Opera” and “Toy Symphony” among others), he’ll be introducing some exciting new collaborations with major symphony orchestras. If you’re attending, let us know what you think!
And check out the Elbphiharmonie hall going up in Hamburg (at right). Pretty mind-blowing! Tod is handy with his iPhone camera. We hope he sends back some photos.
