An immersive experience, A Synthesized Universe combines live music with custom animation, otherworldly video manipulations, and a flight through the known universe.
Singer-songwriter Anthonie Tonnon originally developed this work for a planetarium, working with animatorAndrewCharltonandOtagoMuseum.In this newly expanded version, he has incorporated the holographic-like techniques of video and installation artist, Erica Sklenars, aka Lady Lazerlight.
Throughout the show,Tonnonandhisvisual operator perform together in real time, with room for improvisation. A Synthesized Universe is Tonnon’s own charmed blend of science, surreal storytelling and physical movement, combined with Charlton’s animations and Sklenars’ distortion of visual reality, making for a multi-sensory experience.
