‘Migrations — from the remarkable epic journeys of birds and whales moving from one part of the Earth to another, to the micro-movements of genetics, DNA, atoms, and viruses. From the diasporas of whole peoples and cultures, with the shifting and sharing of ideas, philosophies, languages, and even the emotions of the human heart, to nature’s weather patterns, and the dance of planets, seeds and stars, these themes have inspired the “Migrations” immersive 360 experience.” No’a Winter Lazerus
The show consists of two 40 minute long original visual music performances:

“Migrations” Live Visual/Music In The Vortex Immersive Dome – 2011
The visual music concert event ‘Migrations” was presented in Los Angeles on November 6th, 2011, with the uniquely engaged and expressed visions of three remarkable artists conceptualizing together in the one of a kind Vortex Immersive Dome Theater located at the LA Center Studios in downtown Los Angeles. “Migrations” is a fulldome artistic visual/sound experience that utilizes all of the remarkable possibilities that a special concert space such as the Vortex Dome Theater can offer with it’s 360 degree visual and audio experience for complete mind, body and soul engagement.
About the performance:
There are many types of “Migrations” such as; the well known seasonal flights of birds from the north to the south, the movement of whales from Hawaii to the North Pole, or of buffalo moving across the open ranges of South Dakota. There are also “Migrations” of genetics from the diverse human diaspora, DNA, cells, thoughts, feelings, even the motion that takes the human from physical incarnation to the dissolution of the body in death are forms of “Migration.” The “Migration” of Soul and Spirit encountered in moments of ecstasy or sacred reverence, grief or wonder. Forced “Migrations” of groups of people or of animals due to droughts, catostraphic events, climate changes or political issues.
The “Migrations” live performance will engage these many diverse topics and themes in an evolving, ongoing artistic experience that speaks profoundly to the audience who becomes a part of the whole performance. From occluded shadows to numinous clarity the artists and audience will share the exploration and ‘migrate” together in new understandings of the mysteries of the human experience.
