Mike Batt presents:


A new magic audiovisual dimension in 360° video.

Enter a magical world. Dare to believe your eyes. Nothing here is just what it seems at first glance: a postcard as a portal to a lost city, tarot cards which come to life or floating ballet dancers in virtual worlds. A symphony of sounds, pictures and emotions takes you away to a mysterious universe.

Now, Mike Batt has, together with Terry Rudat and Mindgames Productions, gathered a team of superb, creative 3D designers, illustrators, dancers and video artists to visualise his epic musical work in spectacular visual worlds. The spectator sets out on a breathtaking journey through a magic, audiovisual universe which is created in and through Mike Batt´s music. Voices in the Dark takes you to completely new audiovisual dimensions and surprises the spectator to the very last.

VOICES IN THE DARK is an ambitious project which Mike Batt himself described as a “music-video-art-film installation” after the screening of the first sequences. It seems like everybody has a hard time expressing this work in words. What is new in comparison to earlier projects for the planetarium dome is the almost playful exploration of the visual possibilities for 360° video. Here, HD Realfilm meets 3D animation, 2D drawings and music. It seems that the planetarium sky is populated by floating ballet dancers and diving models here.
The “star dome” as a research laboratory for cinematic possibility?

Whereas Hollywood turns to the “old” 3D glasses once again, VOICES IN THE DARK “investigates” the endless cinematic vastness and possibilities of (planetarium) sky.
