This video will turn your music-listening experience into something else.

ZURICH CHAMBER ORCHESTRA,ROLLER COASTER

Virtual Republic | Vimeo

J-P Mauro - published on 08/31/18

Music is not only meant to be heard. Buckle up.

When the Zurich Chamber Orchestra was looking for a way to promote their 2012 season, they eventually turned to Virtual Republic Studio. The result was this great video: it takes the fourth movement of Ferdinand Ries’ Second Symphony and sets it to a virtual roller coaster that follows the music: when it lulls, the ride moves up a hill; when it races, the coaster goes down a free fall. Just like your experience when listening to a great piece of music. Enjoy!
