FROM 5TH TILL THE 18TH OF NOVEMBER, visit the light and sound installation/expo in celebration of the Swiss Romande Orchestra’s centennial celebrations.
The Orchestre de la Suisse Romande celebrates its First Century !
Imagine a symphonic orchestra before you…
Street Light Orchestra is an installation that brings together five street lamps. Four of which broadcast a soundtrack from a family of instruments: brass, strings, wood, percussion. The fifth, in the center, plays the work with all the instruments as the conductor hears them.
You are in the centre of the orchestra
The visitor travels from one lamppost to another to explore the piece in all its subtleties. A light show accompanies the music.
The music was recorded by the OSR, with the help of the RTS, conducted by Maestro Philippe Béran.
