April 4th 2013: We're pleased to announce our 4th MATRIX OPTIMIZER show production
LOCO-DYNA-MORPHICS - An audio-visual essay on the physics of natural numbers
dedicated to the SAT[O]SPHERE Montreal @ Elektra Festival 2013
Premiere: May 1st, SAT Dome, Montreal
LOCO-DYNA-MORPHICs is a new AudioVisual Fulldome show production, using Stefan's CymaSonics based MatrixOptimizer fulldome production software,
synchronously integrating 3D FulldomeVideo animation
and 3D FulldomeAudio animation, opening the full dome space
for virtual acoustics.
The new show deals with the physics of natural numbers, their creative representation by simple but more and more complex visualized
sounding object geometries and their animation possibilities within the 9 dimensions of Space, Time and Form,
unfolding in a 50 minutes sequence of spatial animated musical and ambient compositions, most of them created by Stefan Berke.
Finally, it's not just an audio-visual fulldome show: it is a challange for your spatial listening.
Experience .... what no men has seen with ears before !
January 18th 2013: The proposal for "LOCO-DYNA-MORPHICS" was accepted by SAT & Elektra, Montreal.
January 3rd 2013: Stefan & me started to discuss and brainstorm on a new show project for the SAT...

April 17th: SUMMARY
End of 2011 the Fraunhofer IDMT's new SpatialSound Wave System was installed here at ZEISS Planetarium Jena.
So, we decided to design a completely new audio-visual fulldome animation software, integrating the 1.0.1,
LisztFromSpace and KeplerOscillator experiences. This way MATRIX OPTIMIZER 2.0 was born.

FullDome Festival Jena 2011 at the time:
Our workshop issue was to present the new CymaSonics Modular Workbench with an interactive realtime Fulldome
3D Audio-Graphics demonstration - at least - demonstrated with some preproduced stuff.
Fortunately we also could re-screen our last years FulldomeAudio technology demonstration clip "CymaSonics - MATRIX OPTIMIZER 1.0.1"
in its original 5-channel behaviour again.
Next it will be screened at the
Melbourne International Film Festival.
We will come back with an update on the actually running Festival till end of the coming week
& a new CS-Modular project page will follow soon after!
