Die Winterreise:

A Digital Reinvention

Performed by Marc Callahan, Lee Weisert, and Sabine Gruffat​

Process Series Faculty Submission

In a collaborative experiment, digital media artist Sabine Gruffat and composer Lee Weisert will reinvent Franz Schubert’s Die Winterreise during a live performance by baritone Marc Callahan. By sharing the same stage, these artists hope to draw inspiration from one another, giving the audience a new perspective on this iconic song cycle. Using a combination of biosignal sensors and facial recognition software, projected images will come to life over a harrowing, digitalized reinvention of this 19th century music. This performance will be accompanied by a display of Bill Brown’s visual art installation Aura Retrieval Machine.
