HACK THE QUARTET
A quartet is like a game of chess; simple in its make up and infinite in its possibility.
The Sacconi Quartet is an award winning quartet formed in the UK in 2001. From 30 – 31 July 2013, Hack the Quartet brought together 20 talented and curious participants to collaborate with the Sacconi Quartet to make a range of technology-driven explorations of the chamber music world. Questions that were posed:
‘How can we use sensors, cameras, projectors and other technologies to help the audience to listen more actively?’;‘How can we give an audience an idea of what it is like to be the performer of a piece?’:‘How can we meaningfully represent how a quartet collaborates and communicates whilst performing?’:‘How might we integrate technologies without them being distracting to the audience or damaging to the instruments?’
