On 9 May 2008, a unique concert was staged at the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe. Specially composed for the occasion, Vor dem Verstummen by Harald Weiss received its world premiere in the field of stelae, when it was performed for an appreciative audience of thousands. The sound experienced by each individual was different, depending on his or her precise location amongst the stelae. Now it can be experienced again as the first virtual concert in the world, using an app on your smartphone. Find out more here: http://virtuelleskonzert.com/index_en.html (comment edited by Mod)
