Classical music meets video art – the SIM/NEBULA event
Classical music meets video art – the Rudolfinum in Prague began to billow, glow and explode.
With the help of eleven visual artists the project SIM/NEBULA was realized – from 16 to 18 February 2018 in the interior of the hall Dvořák in the Rudolfinum. A breathtaking combination of light art and live music was served by artists from all over the world together with the famous Prague Radio Symphony Orchestra.
The technological achievements of mapping projection cards and visual effects together with motion design make it possible. Famous classical and modern video art together create a fascinating spectacle that amazed everyone, including us at rebeam.

The projection was also realized with the help of the rebeam Barcos. The Illumination tells a seven-part, loose story of a journey into the unknown, which also includes the journey into one’s own self and its external world, the universe. Acoustic waves of classical music are transferred into visual elements and made visible.
Simultaneously to the sound, the audience, who is also a listener, experiences synaesthetic colours and movements.
The orchestra shone the full 50 minutes with its performance, it played under the baton of the well-known conductor Jan KučeraBeim and provided the audience with the classical symphony no. 9 “From the New World” (so-called “New World Symphony”) by A. Dvořák, the symphony poem “Vltava” by Dvořák’s Smetana, the prelude “Carnival” by Antonín Dvořák and the symphony “Pathetic” by Petr World” Čajkovský.
It was possible to show on what high level modern mapping has meanwhile reached. A total of eleven artists were involved, the visual artist Amar Mulabegovič from the creative studio The Macula had the artistic direction. The artists came from various countries, among them for example the new media artist Osman Koç. They all convinced the audience that evening how versatile and impressive large-venue projectors can be used.
