The work we present is an interdisciplinary collaboration between the Saarland University Orchestra and students of media computer science. The main goal was to create an opportunity for the audience of a live event to engage and have an active influence on the course and mood of the event itself. Our concept was tested and implemented as part of the end of semester concert where an animation - projected on large public display - was musically supported by a live orchestra. The audience of that concert was able to influence the order as well as the mood of the musical pieces by the use of a web application on their mobile phone, and could so take actively part of show.
