PHENICX: Innovating the classical music experience

PHENICX (“Performances as Highly Enriched aNd Interactive Concert eXperiences”) is an EU FP7 project that lasts from February 2013 to January 2016. It focuses on creating novel digital concert experiences, improving the accessibility of classical music concert performances by enhancing and enriching them in novel multimodal ways. This requires a usercentered approach throughout the project. After introducing the project, we discuss its goals, the technological challenges it offers, and current scientific and technological outcomes.

Subsequently, we discuss how integrated prototypes combine several technological advances in the project into coherent user-ready interfaces, offering novel ways to experience the timeline of a concert, and rediscover and re-experience it afterwards. Finally, we discuss how PHENICX outcomes have been demonstrated live in concert halls.
