Each year the Students’ Night is one of the core events of the Jena FullDome Festival. The 12th edition will see approx. 30 high-quality student works. They promise excitement and variety. Here we experiment without blinkers. Emotions, as well as narratives and hypnotic pieces, are presented. Students from Weimar, London, Offenbach, Poland and the USA, among others, mix graphics, film, animation, and sound.
It is the first time ever KYMAT is performed live in the dome! FullDome Festival visitors will be treated to a spectacular late night show with KYMAT-inventor Sven Meyer. Images are created by sound. Musician, DJ and never-tiring tinkerer Sven Meyer will present the latest ﬁndings he gained at his Hamburg-based laboratory. In his role as the Mad Professor he invites the audience to take part in an experiment. The set-up is rather simple: A camera takes pictures of a bottle lid that is ﬁlled with a sprinkle of water. Most accurately and with the fattest sounds Dr. Meyer will make the water drops go mad. Symbols and basic patterns to be found in this world will be shown along with organic patterns, cells dividing, mandalas, ice crystals, spores, tortoise shells. Thus sound takes on a new shape in the process.
