'Orchestrating the Orchestra’ 5G enables musicians to perform across locations

14 March 2019

The public are invited to experience musicians perform a fully synchronised concert across venues in Bristol and London, using 5G Orchestration Technologies on Saturday 16th March.

The University of Bristol’s Smart Internet Lab invites audiences to experience a unique musical performance in Bristol’s ‘We The Curious’ centre. The innovative performance will connect three musicians in three distinct geographical areas over a 5G network to deliver a music concert.

The event, scheduled to take place on Saturday 16th March 2019 at 15.30 at Bristol’s ‘We the Curious’ Science centre, is part of the ‘5G Smart Futures’ a day of demonstrations and discussions that celebrate the creative and economic potential of the power of 5G.

Audiences will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the world of 5G and experience a three-way distributed music performance showcasing the potential of ultra low-latency, high bandwidth and full synchronization delivered over 5G networks.

This demonstration is an output of the UK Government’s Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) ‘5GUK Testbeds and Trials Programme’ (Phase 1) funded project, ‘5G Smart Tourism’.
