Review of the Spot On MozART Expo
Project exhibition

Green carpets and the scent of popcorn guided visitors* to the Spot On MozART Expo at Mirabellplatz 1 on October 13 and 14. In the Solitär foyer, guests found themselves in a lounge area, through which they were guided to the Solitär hall with popcorn and Coke to watch the short films Lost in Dimensions with live music, Idyll , #beautiful and Nachts. Those who wanted to could then join a guided tour of the exhibition, or set out on their own to explore the individual projects. There was a lot to discover: a 360° video, a piano-playing robot, interactive musical experiences in container spaces, pedagogical works, a collaboration between Mozarteum students and the Red Bull Media House archive - a total of 17 projects already created or in the process of being created were presented, inviting visitors not only to look at them but also to participate. The visualizations invited visitors to consider the question of how our individual perception of music changes when artistic visualizations present us with different images than we would associate with the music ourselves. For the first time, the Fulldome / VR&AR Lab of the University of Applied Arts in Vienna was also brought to the Mozarteum University with the collaborative project Mozart-realtime Quintet. with the aim of creating an active, playful and at the same time creative access to Mozart's work for the visitors, the Mozart Clarinet Quintet was realized as an interactive fulldome environment. With the help of a touch interface, visitors were able to intervene in and change the audiovisual composition. A look behind the scenes was provided by a second edition of the scrapbook with insights into the creation of the projects and personal statements by the artists, which can be downloaded below or obtained on request from the Spot On MozART Office.

    Shift KV594 

    W. A. Mozart's composition Adagio in F minor (KV 594) for an organ work in a clock becomes a synesthetic experience in the project Shift, materially visible, audible and tangible. The result was presented in a textile-acoustic concert on July 18.

    find me! 

    Mozart had to deal with the problem of being an ordinary person and at the same time an extremely sensitive musician. Was it difficult to accept himself? Did he frighten himself when he realised his extraordinary talent? Was his humour helpful in accepting himself? In the search for answers to these questions, many themes can be discerned that can be symbolic and meaningful for any generation and at any time.

    Upcoming Spot On MozART Events 

    In its final year, the Spot On MozART is entirely dedicated to the "Spot On" moment: analogue and digital media, festivals, conferences, fairs - the Spot On moment is concerned with the presentation and positioning of the projects in public space.
