Cutting edge: Kansas City is first to perform in Google Glass

Oh, Dorothy, take good care. Your orchestra is recording Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony in the latest sense-surround technology.

Like? Not sure.

More here. Anyone in Kansas City want to tell us how it went?


UPDATE: Howls of protest from the prairies: This is the Kansas City Symphony, at the Kauffman Center, which is actually Missouri, rather than neighbouring Kansas, state of Oz.

Hope that’s clear.

    Norman, Norman, Norman. Kansas City is in Missouri. But there is also a Kansas City, KS!

  2. Michael Schaffer says:

    “The idea is that the symphony members would use the Google Glass to give the rest of the world a first-person point-of-view for how it feels to be, as the KC Symphony press release put it, “a world-class musician in one of the country’s top orchestras” ”

    Sounds great – but why then did they do this in Kansas City, with that orchestra? It’s neither “world class” nor “one of the country’s top orchestras”.
