WIRED tell us what conductors are actually doing in this eye-opening interview with Kent Tritle.

Kent has been in the conducting game pretty much all his life and knows all there is to know when it comes to conducting orchestras. For most of us, when we look at conductors at work, we’re not really sure what they’re actually doing. Are they just there for show? What would happen if they weren’t there? Some even mock the wild and over the top movements that they make. But Kent tells us we need to give them more respect. There’s more going on than you might think…

He tells us all the different techniques that conductors use to keep the players in time and keep them at the right volumes. When you’re performing in an orchestra, you’ll have sheet music in front of you, but it can still be really hard to keep in time with the hundreds of other musicians around you. That’s where the conductor comes in. To be a pro, it takes years of practice as one mistake can ruin an entire performance. In this video, Kent walks us through all the different things that conductors do during a performance and how those movements shape the sounds that we hear.
