After a whole series of successfully realized opera events in leading 3D audio technology, including the Sydney Opera House with Korngold’s “Die tote Stadt”, IOSONO is happy to announce a new project combining IOSONO 3D sound with Franz Liszt’s “Via Crucis”.

World famous stage director and visual artist Robert Wilson is staging a light and multi-dimensional sound installation with the composer’s work.

Benefiting from the 3D sound technology of IOSONO, Wilson is wrapping the audience in new soundscapes with Liszt’s music.

Hosted in a century-old, former livestock auction hall, Franz Liszt’s musical interpretation of the 14 Stations of the Cross is emphasized by a fascinating light and sound installation, making the production an art experience for all senses.

“The multi-dimensional soundscapes and light architecture are creating a unique experience of space. The goal really is for the audience to get lost in Liszt’s music,” Robert Wilson says. Olaf Stepputat of IOSONO comments: “We’re very much looking forward to offering an unforgettable show for the audience.

It’s a perfect example on how leading 3D technology is able to highlight a musical masterpiece from one of the most acclaimed composers of all time”.

“Via Crucis” is a composition for piano, organ and choir and is known to be one of Liszt’s most extraordinary works. Wilson’s production of “Via Crucis” is the highlight of this year’s Kunstfest in Weimar, Germany, taking place under the direction of Nike Wagner.

“This is the most spectacular project the Kunstfest has seen in its long history. We are very happy to have gained IOSONO as the sound partner for this event,” Nike Wagner says. “Via Crucis” is premiering on September 1, 2012.
