Mirror Music

A cooperative encounter between musicians and non-musicians. A game in which both sides can discover something new - about themselves, the instruments, and music.

Spread out in the mirrored halls of Alte Oper Frankfurt, Ensemble Modern instrumentalists play mini-concerts. The audience can continue the music simply by moving their hands. The musicians mirror every movement in real time.
