James Hood’s Mesmerica is a groundbreaking immersive audio-visual experience, exhibiting in planetariums and dome venues across the US and Canada. Combining James Hood’s music with carefully curated 3D animations from artists around the world, the award-winning show is an enormous hit with both audiences and planetarium operators alike, breaking all existing records for fulldome/planetarium music shows. The hour-long or 45-minute show features 360° projections and stunning 7.1 surround sound. We will be creating a flat-screen adaptation of the film for giant screen theaters by Q4 2023.

Length: 45:00
