LUBBOCK, TX – The Lubbock Symphony Orchestra (LSO) will host its 2022 “Bruckner’s Towering 8th” concert on Saturday, April 23, at the Buddy Holly Hall of Performing Arts and Sciences, starting at 7:30 p.m. In addition to our usual concert, the Lubbock Symphony will be partnering with artificial intelligence company, ONSTAGE.ai, to record the night’s concert completely using artificial intelligence.
ONSTAGE.ai, founded in 2017, is a global solution of Polish origin focused on bringing the music viewing experience into the 21st century by being on the cutting edge of developing technology. Recently the company has shifted focus to working on a video streaming service entirely run by artificial intelligence. Using only the score of the concert, four digital cameras, and the ONSTAGE.ai software, the entire concert can be recorded with the simple push of a button. This simplifies the video streaming/recording process by replacing the traditional video production team with a fully automated, unlimited, and on-demand software solution while maintaining the highest industry standard.
On Saturday, April 23, 2022, at The Buddy Holly Hall, the Lubbock Symphony will be the FIRST American symphony to test out the latest technology in video streaming services with Polish tech company ONSTAGE.ai.(Lubbock Symphony Orchestra)
It is our mission to bring the classical music world into the digital future, starting with enabling the fast, easy, and automatic video recording of every live performance
- Jakub Fiebig, Co-Founder and CEO of ONSTAGE.ai.
