    The "Unruh" of the Mozarteum 

    Since October 2019, Spot On MozART has been dedicated to the visual exploration of listening and thus to a new understanding of the music of Wolfgang Amadé Mozart. At the end of the project in autumn 2023, the Mozarteum University will present a retrospective of all implemented art and research projects in a comprehensive publication.

    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.

    In 1770 Mozart lived in Bologna and passed the examination to become a member of the Accademia Filarmonica di Bologna. ALL'ARIA traces his places of residence and shows Bologna as an ancient and modern city - historical places in a modern time. Taken out of the usual setting, the traditional concert halls and the classical theater, we meet Mozart's music outside, in the street, under the arcades and all'aria - in the air.

    NŌGRAPHIE captures the natural gestures of a singer while singing by means of "light painting". Two light cuffs attached to the forearms reproduce a sequence of movements in photographic long-time and enable the graphic representation of the singing body. Singing (Latin: canō, "I sing") and drawing (Greek: graphein, "to write, to draw") merge into a single action, the Canōgraphie, a graphic representation of what emerges pictorially from the singing body.

  • Mozart Spheres in Orbit | © Matthias Kassmannhuber

    Mozart Spheres in Orbit is an interactive installation with spatial audio for VR glasses. In a virtual black space, individual white luminous spheres orbit around an invisible center. Each of these spheres represents a note of the Adagio of Mozart's Sonata for Piano and Violin in F Major (KV 55) and reacts in real time to the dynamics of the piece.

    #FaceYourMozart is intended as a stimulus to actively engage with Mozart's music, to hear sensations and human interaction from the music, and to translate these into pantomime or scenic action with the help of a Mozart silhouette (as a tool) derived from the logo of the Mozarteum Orchestra.

    Reactive Mozart is an interactive installation for 2 players. In 2 rooms with 360° sound and visuals, one person at a time can interact with the music and the other person via motion tracking. By collecting virtual objects, movement in the room and gesture control, different acoustic room situations are created, which enable a differentiated listening to the piece. The room acoustically and visually represents the piano, while the players can control the violin and cello.

  • Constructing Mozart | © Ruth Schnell

    In the course of the project Spot On MozART, various authors have dealt with the person W. A. Mozart, with lines of conflict and social relations. Who was Mozart?

    Mozart real time quintet 

    The project MOZART-REALTIME QUINTETT offers an audiovisual experience in which the music of W. A. Mozart is realized as a synesthetic, interactive visualization by means of computer-generated real-time graphics. With the aim of creating an active playful and at the same time creative access to the work of Mozart, Mozart's Clarinet Quintet (KV 581) was realized as an interactive fulldome environment. With the help of a touch interface, the visitors can intervene in the audiovisual composition and change it.
