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.
The Mozart city of Salzburg offers many opportunities to get to know the musical heritage of the genius loci. But where are these Mozart cultural hotspots hiding? A smartphone app sends interested people on a voyage of discovery in the city of Salzburg and acts as a link between music-historical places and Mozart's music.
A project by
and Elisabeth Wieland
An interactive map makes it possible to experience musical encounters with 'all the senses'. But the app is also intended as an invitation to become creatively active oneself and to share one's experiences with others: An additional upload function invites users to make their own personal hotspots visible to others and, in the spirit of citizen science, to let the virtual map grow dynamically. In this way, testimonies of the past and the present can interpenetrate each other in many ways.
