Philharmonia Fantastique: The Making of the Orchestra is a 23-minute multi-media concerto from Grammy-winning composer, Mason Bates in collaboration with a multi-Oscar-winning creative team. The animated film flies through the instruments of the orchestra to explore the fundamental connections between music, sound, performance, creativity and technology.

Guided by a magical Sprite, the film shows violin strings vibrate, brass valves slice air, and drumheads resonate. Imaginatively blending traditional and modern animation styles, it is a kinetic and compelling guide to the orchestra that engagingly illustrates the intricacies of how instruments work individually and collectively to produce such a huge range of sound. By the culmination of the piece, the orchestra has overcome its differences of sections and sound to demonstrate unity from diversity in a spectacular finale.
