It’s been a decade since the oddly shaped Walt Disney Concert Hall opened in Downtown Los Angeles, and the venue’s resident house band, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, is celebrating offering you a chance to see the world through their eyes. That is: To stand in the middle of an orchestra without being able to move anything but your head. It’s like a nightmare where you want to run, but your legs just won’t work for whatever reason.
Created in partnership with Hello Design, a new “360-experience” video puts you right in front of the director and standing in the first row of musicians, stuck without being able to speak as they play menacing music at you without directly acknowledging you. It’s, in a word, enthralling. In three words, it’s creepily enthralling.
The site also encourages you to become a concert master, choosing performances throughout the LA Philharmonic’s season based on some really strange questions. Classical musicians sure know how to party, huh?
