Mozart's House in Vienna to Host New Multimedia Experience

Opening September 8, 2022, Mythos Mozart features five rooms, each offering an immersive, sensory experience that brings together music, lighting design, and artificial intelligence

 

Vienna's Kleines Kayserhaus, where Mozart spent the final year of his life and wrote several of his most mature works, will soon play host to a new multimedia exhibition. Entitled Mythos Mozart, the exhibition features lighting design, animations, artificial intelligence, and approximately 200 loudspeakers.

The immersive experience is underpinned by a soundscape composed and rearranged by Mythos Mozart's Music Director, Walter Werzowa. Visitors will pass through five different rooms, each focused on a different aspect of Mozart's life.

A highlight is the first room, which is lined with 1,500 candles. It central work is Mozart's late Requiem of 1791 and features specialist lighting by designer Moritz Waldemeyer.

Other rooms recreate the streets of Vienna as Mozart would have seen them, allow listeners to immerse themselves in light as well as music under thousands of synapses, and feature the AI work of Turkish-American New Media artist Refik Anadol.

The project is being run in collaboration with the University of Music and the Performing Arts Vienna, with all of the music being recorded by the conservatory's students.

These recordings from the Hofburgkapelle, the Synchron Stage Vienna, and the Schönbrunn Palace Theatre will be available as a soundtrack in the on-site shop.

Below is a short video that gives you a taste of the exhibition.
