On Saturday, August 31, 7:30pm, at Imiloa Astronomy Center Planetarium, 600 Imiloa Place, Hilo, Ebb & Flow Arts present an all-new MUSIC OF THE SPHERES - electronic music with in-house 3D digital projection, and full dome films that feature visual art by Hawai’i-based artists.
The program: Lee Michael, Maria, and Dominik Walczuk (Mountain View, Big Island) create a full dome film, “Hoodoo Zephyr”, with spectacular footage of lava flow. The electronic music is by John Adams. Jon Magnussen’s (Honolulu) “Round Trip” will be matched with 3D digital projection from Imiloa Planetarium, Shawn Laatsch, director. John Melby’s (Massachusetts)”....of quiet desperation....” for computer-generated electronic sound will also be ‘choreographed’ with Imiloa’s 3d, in-house effects. Peter Swanzy’s (Maui) “Charlie” is a thought provoking full dome film with electronic sound track based on the audio from the film’s footage. Finally, Charles Wuorinen’s Pulitzer Prize winning and mammoth electronic work, “Times Encomium” (part 2), also will feature a full dome film of paintings by Martha Woodbury (Maui). The event is FREE ADMISSION. It is a perfect way to celebrate Labor Day weekend!
“We are thrilled to return to Imiloa Planetarium for the fifth time with an all new program produced by Peter Swanzy”, says Robert Pollock, Executive Director of E&FA. “Several of the artists and composers from three Hawaiian islands and beyond will be in attendance”, he adds.
