Smooth Classics with Margherita Taylor 10pm - 1am
The project shows each section of the Orchestra performing The Rite of Spring simultaneously ‘as live’.
Finnish conductor Esa-Pekka Salonen has been Principal Conductor and Artistic Advisor of the Philharmonia Orchestra since September 2008.
Members of the public can listen to Esa-Pekka's commentary and have a go at conducting the Orchestra.
You can also perform the triangle and drums in the Percussion section.
Some cameras were strapped to musicians' heads to capture video footage, so that the public can experience the thrill of performing in a professional symphony orchestra.
You can sit and follow the violin part as the violinists play it on the screen.
The Orchestra's sections can be seen throughout the four-storey warehouse building.
See the project yourself for free at the Bargehouse on London's South Bank from 3 to 15 November.
Re-Rite’s exhibition at an unconventional classical music venue should attract those who might not attend a traditional classical concert, as well as seasoned concert goers who want to experience the excitement of sitting in the middle of an orchestral section.
Sit in a seat in front of the screen and you will find yourself projected into an empty seat in the horn section.
One room allows you to see the full orchestra and individual sections simultaneously.
You can alter the volume of individual sections and choose which section appears in the centre of the screen via touch-screens.
Re-Rite is open daily from 3 to 15 November.
You can sit in front of the screen and follow the bass part.
Visitors congregate at the entrance.
