(Live VJ show preceding 20 minute pre-rendered visual audial experience)

Total Run Time: 20:00
Executive Creative Director: Diana Reichenbach
Country of Origin: United States
Ratings: None
Synopsis: In the summer of 2019, a league of Illuminauts banded together to create a multi-sensory aesthetic experience that brings forth spiritual redemption through the medium of a dome-projection. Transforming landscapes into abstract composition as we search for universal expression through mystical symbolism and music allusions. We are expressing the emotion of the cosmic scheme; to present a sensation of cosmic bodies in harmony with each other by means of color and form.
