Abstract

The Mobile Orchestra Explorer paradigm enables active experience of prerecorded music: users can navigate and express themselves in a shared (physical or virtual) orchestra space, populated by the sections of a prerecorded music. The user moves in a room with his/her mobile phone in his/her hand: the music performed by the orchestra sections is rendered according to the user position and movement. In this paper we present an evaluation study conducted during the Festival of Science 2010 in Genova, Italy. Forty participants interacted with the Mobile Orchestra Explorer and filled questionnaires about their active music listening experience.
