Living Out Loud Los Angeles interviews David Bohnett about the LA Philharmonic's VAN Beethoven virtual reality experience.
The Los Angeles Philharmonic has launched a virtual reality project in which people don VR goggles and Samsung headsets that give them a 3-D, 360-degree experience of four minutes of Beethoven's Symphony No. 5, performed by the orchestra at Walt Disney Concert Hall.
Newly launched is VAN Beethoven — a 4-minute virtual reality experience. It’s a new initiative that aims to introduce the LA Phil to a broader audience base.
