The world's most famous dead composers like Beethoven and Schubert are to be brought back to life by QR headstones that will play their works to passers by.
Officials at Vienna's Central Cemetery in Austria are to place QR - or Quick Response - codes on the musicians' tombstones so anyone with a smartphone can interact with them.
The graveyard is home to some of classical music's biggest names like Beethoven, Schubert, Brahms, Johan Strauss II and Mozart's rival Antonio Salieri.
Visitors will be able to scan the barcode-style squares and download music, videos and information about the composer.
Mozart, say officials organising the EU funded project, will also get a QR code at a different graveyard in the city.
Britain's first QR code headstone was unveiled earlier this month on the grave of Timothy Tuttle in Dorset.
Widow Gill, 53, said: "I like that we are in control."
Expert Jorg Bauer ,who produces QR headstones in Austria, explained: "The square codes – the QR codes – launch a website which contains a biography of the deceased. It tells you a lot more than their dates of birth and death."
