Presenting The Sound of Symphonia Academica

Symphonia Academica is a vehicle upon which a dynamic and changing ensemble of classical musicians can ride in order to play to music enthusiasts across Bedfordshire and the home counties.

Purpose

Led by violinist, Peter Bussereau, Symphonia Academica had won a position with Anglia Ruskin University and required an online presence to chart its programme and promote its existence.

The composition of each ensemble is dictated by the venue and chamber music Symphonia Academica play for private functions, corporate events and public festivals. The orchestra's potential repertoire is colossal and Symphonia Academica draws its players from a network of classical music professionals who play within some of the UK's biggest and best known orchestras.

At the very heart of Symphonia Academica is a core of musicians with a love of playing chamber music in intimate settings.

Musically Driven and Image Led

With just a base logo to start with, Sub@omic set about designing and building a website, using Web Diffusion, that enabled the chamber ensemble to convey the intimacy of a performance from their ever-changing line-up without resorting to the sharing of and copyright issues surrounding performance audio and video. Our solution was to photograph the classical orchestra during the rehearsal for an evening performance with arrangements of classical works calling for every musician in the network.

Website location photography is, perhaps, the strongest element of this website design. Client photography was essential in being able to convey the ability of the ensemble to scale from a string quartet to a large chamber orchestra.

Having used a regular lens for the photography of the rehersal, a long lens proved invaluable for the photography of the evening performance; capturing some intimate moments without disturbing the players or their audience.

Location Photography

Steve Whiting, Sub@omic's Director attended a rehearsal and performance held at Anglia Ruskin University, Chelmsford, to capture the intensity of a high calibre chamber music performance, using a mixture of digital, long-lens and conventional film photography.

🤍
Amongst the cameras used to capture the performance was the Rolleiflex camera that Steve's father had started his photographic studio the year Steve was born.
