Concert sound meets corner speed: In the commercial “High speed orchestra”, everything revolves around a respectable symphony orchestra that is suddenly thrown around by mysterious forces in the middle of a piece by Vivaldi and attempts to give a perfect performance against all odds. The final scene of the film reveals all: we see a young couple listening to precisely this piece by Vivaldi playing on a Burmester High-End Surround Sound-System in a Porsche Panamera as they speed through the serpentines of an Alpine pass.
No special information needed to enjoy and appreciate this film.
The orchestra scenes were shot with professional musicians in the concert hall of ‘Radio Romania’ in Bucharest. The stage was particularly prepared with moving plates, on which the musicians were thrown around whilst actually playing a specially adapted version of Vivaldi’s “Winter”. Further, the sound actually “follows” the movements on screen, thus acoustically pushing the viewer along into the corner. With this, the music not only plays a key role – the clip literally evolves around it.
