CIA animations and CIM compositions will surround visitors in immersive experience at Cleveland Museum of Natural History
Animations created by Cleveland Institute of Art students will complement original scores composed by Cleveland Institute of Music students when the two colleges present a public program, 360 Degrees of Sight + Sound: The Planetarium Project, on Feb. 25 at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History’s Nathan and Fannye Shafran Planetarium.
Swirling images and colors timed to accompany new music will surround audience members in sight and sound from all angles in the museum’s planetarium, one of the best equipped and most compelling facilities of its size in the nation.
CIA’s Animation Department Chair Anthony Scalmato said the curved nature of the dome’s surface presented interesting technical challenges for his students, who were accustomed to creating animations for flat screens. “It was the first time any of us had done anything like that so it was a lot of trial and error and test screenings at the planetarium,” he said. But students rose to the challenge and made all of the deadlines built into their ambitious production schedule.
“The students have been fantastic and I’m really proud of them,” Scalmato said. “They had to work together and communicate with each other and keep to a professional production schedule, and that in itself is a major task to handle.”
Scalmato said all of the animations were created in a course offered by the Animation Department, but that students represented a nice cross section of campus, coming from Animation, Game Design, Illustration, Video, Industrial Design, Ceramics, and Painting.
The Planetarium Project started in late summer when CIM students began composing scores. They met with CIA students early in the school year to present their original music and discuss animation ideas with the art students. Next, students from both University Circle-based colleges met with Jason Davis, the museum’s astronomy programs coordinator and a dome enthusiast, to discuss the technical considerations of composing an animation for a dome.
Public showings of 360 Degrees of Sight + Sound: The Planetarium Project are at 9:00 and 9:45pm on Feb. 25 at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, 1 Wade Oval Drive, Cleveland. Tickets cost $8 for museum members; $10 for nonmembers; and $5 for CIA and CIM students. To reserve tickets, call the museum’s box office at 216.231.1177.
