The opening night of FullDome Festival is dedicated to a special performance at the Jena Planetarium. The audience is invited to: „Konzert im Dome“ – The Visual Music Experience. Original fulldome shows, never seen or heard before, take you on a journey through the art of set-to-music visuals and visualized music in 360-degrees, combining digital projection and spatial sound compositions. Highlights of the opening night are live acts with outstanding musicians performing under a sky of immersive visuals: Mukasa Wafula, PhD candidate at Franz Liszt Music University Weimar, with the African Litungu lyre and chants from Kenia; Penpeng Li, master of the seven-string Guqin zither, with traditional music from China and Prof. Günter Baby Sommer (Dresden), legendary percussionist improvising to live generated 360-degree-visuals by Bauhaus student Ionanis Oriwol. The program will be introduced by Prof. Dr. Tiago de Oliveira Pinto (Franz Liszt Music University Weimar, UNESCO chair Transcultural Music Studies) and Prof. Micky Remann (Bauhaus-Universität Weimar, Immersive Media).
