A Synthesized Universe is an immersive experience that combines live music with custom animation, other-worldly video manipulations, and a flight through the known universe.
Singer-songwriter Anthonie Tonnon originally developed A Synthesized Universe for a modern planetarium, working with animator Andrew Charlton and the Otago Museum. In this newly expanded version, he has incorporated the holographic-like techniques of video and installation artist Erica Sklenars, aka Lady Lazerlight.
Throughout the show, Tonnon and his visual operator perform together in real time, with room for improvisation. A Synthesized Universe is Tonnon’s own charmed blend of science, surreal storytelling and physical movement, combined with Charlton’s animations and Sklenars’ distortion of visual reality, making for a multi-sensory experience.
