Music and immersive film fans from the region will be attending the launch of a brand new event in Birmingham called Dome Club – a new digital medium utilising an array of creative and experimental 360 visualisations. Described by Steven Spielberg as the future of film, ‘fulldome’ is an exciting new experience that surrounds the audience with 360 visuals.
Dome Club will launch in January 2014 with performances at 19:00 and 20:30 on Friday 3rd January 2014 in The Old Library at The Custard Factory, Gibb Street, Digbeth, Birmingham, B9 4AA. Kicking off with Pink Floyd: The 360 Experience – a series of three spectacular feasts for the eyes and ears projected with surround sound inside a large 7m inflatable dome (the UK’s second largest mobile dome). The programme will also showcase award-winning immersive film and art from around the world.
Dome Club is also a unique opportunity for those interested in exploring the challenge of 360 filmmaking for themselves. “I’m looking forward to being a part of this exciting project and trying some ‘full dome filming’ myself with new artists I’m working with in the city”, said Steve ‘Grizzly’ Nisbett (former drummer of Grammy award-winning reggae group Steel Pulse), who will also be attending.
Dome Club is all about discovering the new medium of immersive full dome (360˚)visualisation; including graphic design, photography, fashion, art, dance, culture, history, psychedelic content, fractals, science, music and much more. It’s hard to put in to words. As the Dome Club strap line says: ‘No-one can be told what Dome Club is. You have to see it for yourself’.
The Custard Factory is keen on this new venture and invites everyone interested in exploring the creative and entertainment potential of immersive environments to grab a ticket and experience it for themselves at http://www.eventbrite.co.uk/o/dome-club
