Carmina Burana was a commission by the education department at the Weill Music Institute at Carnegie Hall. The piece consisted of over 800 cues, designed to reflect visually the music of Carl Orff, using Kandinsky’s theory of synesthesia.  This theory consists of the notion that sounds have colors and colors have sounds. Tucker’s goal was to create a holistic environment to surround and emphasize the professional experience of the students involved. To achieve this, she enlisted the help of Scharff Weisberg, an incredible New York City based audio and visual company. Along with programmer, Michael Kohler, and project manager, TJ Donoghue, they created a 3D environment, mapping video to the architecture of the hall. Overall, the design worked to enhance the iconic architecture of the hall, still keeping the focus on the students.  For more information, check out the featured documentary video of the event by Kornhaber-Brown.
