The Page to Stage project brought together storytelling, design and technology to develop a prototype app that adds layers of context and texture to classical music performance.
Kenneth Hamilton (School of Music, Cardiff University) collaborated with Amanda Bayley (Bath Spa University) and producer Sheila Hayman for the project, which was funded as part of REACT Future Documentary Sandbox, a nationwide programme to explore the theme of Future Documentary.
A pianist and scholar, Kenneth Hamilton contributed his international performance experience, his knowledge of performance-practice issues, and experience in communicating with audiences.
The prototype which has been developed enables audiences to explore the invisible history, contact and meaning of a piece of music, as played by the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment.
Kenneth Hamilton features in this great REACT video about the project.
