Join audiovisual artists The Sancho Plan as they present their latest interactive musical piece at the BBC Big Screen, Millennium Square, Bristol 12-2pm on Thursday 25 March 2010.

Made in collaboration with Pervasive Media Studio, the finished artwork will be available as a video on the Arts Council website in April 2010.

At the BBC Big Screen, players will be able to control their own animated singing characters through the use of augmented reality technology, which uses computer-generated symbols to sync animations and graphics to the real world, allowing digital characters to seemingly inhabit our world. This will allow several players to combine their characters to generate collaborative harmonies and rhythms.

The Sancho Plan explore the act of making music together as a unique form of artistic collaboration. You can see more of their work at www.thesanchoplan.com.
