In this article the authors demonstrate an interactive audiovisual rendering system where an animated virtual orchestra plays in a modelled concert hall. Virtual musicians are conducted by a real conductor who wears a wired data dress suit and a baton. The conductor and the audience hear the music rendered according to the acoustics of the virtual concert hall, creating a lifelike experience.
