BBC Proms Cello Mapping

BBC Proms

About this project

Working with Sol Gabetta and the BBC, 59 productions have created a cutting-edge projection mapping project that combines tracking and projection technology with musical performance to celebrate the cello season at the 2016 BBC Proms.

In a world first, 59 have created a bespoke piece of animation that is projected onto Sol's cello whilst performing an extract from Elgar's Cello Concerto. The animation both reacts to and visualises elements of the piece whilst tracking Sol and her instrument’s movement during her performance, creating a piece which shows the cello in a brand new light.
