After the success of 3D audio opera "Neither", which was awarded with the German Stage Award, artist network phase7 has again chosen IOSONO 3D sound for their newest multimedia production. The walk-in opera "Celestial Mechanics - Displaced and Relocated" successfully premiered on August 23 at Deutsche Oper Berlin, breaking new ground in terms of staging and technology.

The opera combines composer Mauricio Kagel's 1965 work "Celestial Mechanics" with a new composition by phase7's musical director Christian Steinhäuser. The production guides visitors through the foyer of Deutsche Oper Berlin, making the audience part of the installation. With large scale projections and immersive soundscapes, "Celestial Mechanics" truly turns into a 360 degrees-experience. "'Celestial Mechanics’ is a spectacle for the senses, 'opposing and still unifying reality and virtuality, arts and science, sound and vision. Using IOSONO was essential to realize this, precisely locating the sounds and fully immersing the audience in the experience," says Sven Soeren Beyer, founder and artistic director of phase7.

Walking through the production, the audience hears storms howling and sees lightning and stars fall from the sky. While four singers and six musicians play live, not always to be seen, the strings only play virtually. With the help of IOSONO's 3D sound technology, the audience gets fully wrapped in sound arrangements, complemented by striking visuals. "This is another prove for the proficiency of phase7 and the versatile use of IOSONO's sound systems, delivering great results for modern and classic music alike, as well as for many other applications," says Olaf Stepputat, CEO of IOSONO.
