Oregon Symphony Orchestra has announced its newest artist in residence is Brooklyn-based Matthew Haber, renowned multimedia designer and managing director of experiential agency, BeSide Digital. For his first project in that role, Haber has reimagined the stage and concert hall design using a theme of “environment” for Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring.

As part of its three-year, Sounds of Home concert series, the Orchestra had identified three notable visual artists to interpret "what music looks likes" in their preferred medium. For a 2016 - 2017 run of Béla Bartók’s Bluebeard’s Castle the first in the series, Dale Chihuly created glass sculptures for the set.
For the second installment, the 2018 production of Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring opened January 13. Matthew Haber and his team—who regularly toggle between elaborate theatre design and tech-driven experiential installations for brands, such as AMC, Samsung and Diane von Furstenberg—spent the past year filming and animating original content that's mapped onto the concert hall, as well as surfaces they’ve designed and fabricated.
