Award-winning German composer Robot Koch joins forces with visual artist Mickael Le Goff to present Sphere, an audiovisual show designed especially for planetariums.
The Show will take the audience on a trip through space and time, oscillating between dark, synth-driven science-fiction moments and blissful suspension, carried by lush string arrangements. The immersive full-dome show will feature custom made projection visuals and music composed specifically for a 3D sound environment. The world premiere of Sphere at Zeiss Planetarium Berlin was sold out in no time and 2 other shows had to be added due to the high-ticket requests.
The music has been released in Fall 2018 as the first Robot Koch Solo Album in 4 years.
The World Premiere of the show took place at the Zeiss Planetarium during the Red Bull Music Festival in Berlin in October 2018, kicking off a tour performing the show in planetariums worldwide as well as at music festivals capable of fulldome shows.
