The first CymaSonics Modular fulldome production: "Liszt From Space"
audio-visually animating Franz Liszt's "Ballade No. 2",
recently presented at the Fulldome Festival Jena 2011.
Some words on the history of the future
After our successful running CymaSonics FulldomeAudio-Animation movie clip "Matrix Optimizer 1.0.1", first presented
at the last years Festival in Jena, we decided to go audio-visually realtime and started programming a modular designed
cymasonics based framework: the CymaSonics Modular Workbench.
With that new prototyping tool we created this fulldome audio-visual animation of Franz Liszt's "Ballade No.2",
based on a midi file - we found on the web - faithfully recorded by Koichi Hasegawa,
to whom we want to adress special thanks in this place.
Great Thanks also to Micky Remann & all of his staff & collegues from Zeiss & the Zeiss-Planetarium
and - of course - to the Jury who made a straight decision we did not expect. Thank you very much!
So, within our realtime interactivity workshop issue we wanted to demonstrate spatial audio-visual positioning and
animation by some special CS Modular patches.
As a kind of audio-visual soundcheck, the first patch developes a sounding 10x10 harmographical shape matrix
in 5 layers over the dome.
The second patch, starting up with a small relativistic starflight scene - shows a complex animated
series of different modulations or morphing stages of one circle in space, ceating classical cymatical patterns,
the two types of a sphere and of a torus, ending up in a complicated morphing into a special spherical phase
