The LA Phil and Secret Location have created an Immersive Music Experience that takes the orchestra to people who would not normally have the chance to experience it.

Eric W. Shamlin from Secret Location will be joining us to discuss the stereoscopic, 360-degree virtual reality experience, created with the LA Phil. He will also tell us about the work his team has been doing which recently won them a Primetime Emmy.

About Van Beethoven

VAN Beethoven is a 4-minute virtual reality experience using new Oculus technology that allows you to experience a private concert with the LA Phil from a specially-designed touring truck, which is complete with authentic carpet and seating from Walt Disney Concert Hall. You’ll put on the headset and immediately be transported to Walt Disney Concert Hall to experience the opening minutes of Beethoven’s 5th Symphony, with a few surprises.
