Touchlab - Solstices by G. F. Haas

Touchlab - Solstices by G. F. Haas

Over het evenement

In the past year INSOMNIO set up it’s ‘Touch-LAB’ project. A development programme designed to research how to perform meaningful virtual concerts now and in the future. Concerts where contact between participants, musicians and audience, would be strengthened. To date INSOMNIO has researched different technical solutions for online concerts and developed its own super high-speed networking system. This enables musicians to rehearse and perform together without any time-delay, at CD audio quality, from different physical locations in multiple countries.  We would like to invite you to join us for one of the two trial concerts INSOMNIO is presenting. During these events we will deploy some of the newly developed ‘Touch-LAB’ techniques. For these special concerts we will perform  Solstices, a piece by Georg Frederich Haas, from 10 different locations all over The Netherlands direct to you in the comfort of your own home.

We are delighted to work again with our long-term partner, TivoliVredenburg in Utrecht for these two concerts. They are on Tuesday 29th June and Friday 2nd July at 20:15.   You can access the concert by using a special zoom-link sent to you by INSOMNIO. Using this zoom-link you can listen and watch the concert as through the website and also enjoy a number of extras, such as going ‘behind the scenes’ and being able to:

  • interact with other audience members,
  • interact with performing musicians and
  • contribute to the ongoing research by taking part in a survey after the concert.

Ticket price: for these concerts we are operating a “pay what you can” policy. We encourage you to pay what you can and feel the experience is worth to you.  For more information about “Touch-LAB” you can go to To get in touch do email us at - we’d love to hear from you!
