Sennep designs LSO Play site

Sennep has designed LSO Play, an interactive orchestral experience for The London Symphony Orchestra.

LSO

On the site users can access high definition concert footage from a range of angles.

Sennep says, ‘Users are able to customise their LSO experience by choosing which viewpoints they wish to focus on – up to four at a time. It’s like being in four places at once, including smack-bang in front of Principal Conductor Valery Gergiev.’

The site is designed to be used as a tool for educators to explain different sections of the orchestra from multiple viewpoints simultaneously, or as inspiration for a musician who wishes to focus on a single section.  

The user experience and navigation have been designed with simplicity in mind so the footage ‘can take centre stage’ Sennep says. A semi-circular orchestra pit graphic has been used as the mian navigation device.

LSO

The site currently shows a performance of Ravel’s Bolero, but new works will be added throughout the LSO’s season.

The site also features masterclass video demonstrations and commentary by LSO musicians and experts.
