Dome Art Night: The Planets 360

In conjunction with First Friday Art Walk, the OtterBox Digital Dome Theater at FCMoD will present 360° artwork from artists around the world!

100 years ago in London, Gustav Holst’s The Planets Suite was performed for the first time by the Queen’s Hall Orchestra, conducted by Adrian Boult. 100 years later, the team at NSC Creative and the Philharmonia Orchestra, London have completely re-imagined the suite as an immersive sonic experience.

We are delighted to be presenting each of The Planets 360 – Classic and Modern in the Dome as a double bill.

The Planets 360 – Classic version stays true to Holst’s original Planets Suite, as performed by the Philharmonia Orchestra, to take you on a sweeping tour of the solar system using the power of our planetarium. Using imagery and footage from some of the great missions to the planets, past and present, we delve below the clouds of Venus and skim over the surface of Mercury.

 

The Planets 360 – Modern version is a genuinely immersive experience, mixing mythology, music, and art to bring Holst’s Planets Suite very much up-to-date. Each of the seven planets in the suite is given a distinct personality, from warlike Mars, to mystical Neptune, and the visuals for each are strikingly different. NSC Creative have taken a much-loved classic and produced something exciting and fresh, that explores the planets in a new and engaging way.
