Immersive Dome Theater by Obscura - Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival
Role: Design / Animation / Music and Sound Design / Practical FX
Obscura and HP joined forces to create the captivating audio-visual experience known as Chrysalis, which was showcased at the renowned Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. This unique project took audiences on a mesmerizing journey through time, space, and consciousness within The Antarctic, an impressive geodesic projection dome.

As an integral part of the creative team, my contributions to Chrysalis encompassed various roles, including working on 3D animation and implementing practical effects. Additionally, I had the opportunity to compose evocative music and carefully craft the accompanying sound effects, further enriching the visual narrative.

The collaborative efforts resulted in a seamless fusion of immersive 3D animations, practical effects, and meticulously designed audio elements, creating an experience that transported and transformed audiences. Chrysalis aimed to push the boundaries of creative expression and leave a lasting impression on all who experienced it.
