Co-created Live Art & Musical Experience for Everyone

A-LIVE!

Small, intimate concerts are the new trend of the 21-century music scene. Concert goers constantly seek exclusive experiences in an intimate setting. Musicians get to take a break from the bar scene and experiment, interact, and explore new ideas with their audience. Local music communities get to support local musicians, discover new musical talents, and experiment with new venues. These small, intimate concerts present themselves as perfect opportunities to experiment with new artistic fronts as both musicians and audience have a particular appetite for: surprise, interaction, and unique experiences.

The A-LIVE! Platform is built to augment the intimate concert experience by incorporating sounds and motion from artists and audience inviting everyone to co-create a one-of-a-kind, not replicable, live visual and sound art piece. The system will:

 

  • Reinforce the story that musicians look to tell and provide visible feedback from the audience

  • Allow everyone to take part in the co-creation of art and music experiences

  • Provide an inclusive experience for differently-abled people
