The Electronic Opus performance in action.
Making its debut at Miami Music Week, Electronic Opus is a multi-dimensional musical event featuring a symphony orchestra merged with synthesized electronic instruments, vocals, a hardscape, and video, creating an immersive experience. An interactive 3D projection mapping show stands as a backdrop to the performing orchestra.

Volvox Labs designed and built a 52’ x 13’ topographic wall as a video mapping surface to represent a “physical manifestation of the animated worlds and a wormhole to different dimensions.” Barco provided three RLM-W14 large venue projectors and short-throw lenses for the sound-driven visuals.

The interactive segments blended with the exclusive synchronized HD video footage. An additional projector was used to create holographic projections on transparent acrylic panels in front of the orchestra, creating HD TV walls. As Transeau recently wrote on Twitter, commending this industry first, “I don’t think people can imagine the visual component of Electronic Opus…there’s literally never been anything like it.”

The premiere Electronic Opus event was the first of several concert dates in the works, launching TanZ Group’s plans to spread the Electronic Opus concept worldwide. Barco is supporting the tour with its large venue projectors.
