This year’s Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival offered no shortage of entertainment value, including performances by Kendrick Lamar, Radiohead, Lady Gaga, award-winning film composer Hans Zimmer, and many more, along with various art installations and other festival grounds fare. But perhaps the most awe-inspiring sensory display at the popular California desert event was “Chrysalis,” an 8-minute psychedelic experience projected onto a massive geodesic dome. The 360° audiovisual spectacle starts with a “Shamanistic rite-of-passage ceremony,” and embarks from there on a breathtaking cosmic odyssey.Obscura Digital, the firm responsible for the exhibit, is a San Francisco-based creative technology studio that orchestrates entertaining, informative, and educational experiences with interactive installations, large-format architectural projections, and immersive environments that generate a sense of awe and inspiration for live audiences. Thanks to the Obscura, you can watch footage of the entire light show below (though, of course, a conventional video can’t really come close to capturing the full Antarctic Dome experience):You can also watch Obscura Digital’s official recap video from the installation, which gives some added perspective on the awesome scale of the spectacle and the dumbstruck reactions of its thoroughly satisfied patrons:As the project’s Creative Director Joshua Pipic explained to Vice, “The power of it is that it’s not just a VR headset—it giant and powerful and really takes up all the space in front of your eyes. People overuse the word ‘immersive,’ but it’s the most immersive thing I’ve ever worked on.” And when Pipic says this is the most “immersive” project he’s worked on, you can trust it’s coming from a reliable source: Obscure has designed and brought to life innovative audiovisual exhibitions on the facades of such iconic structures Empire State Building, St. Peter’s Basilica, The Sydney Opera House, and more. You can check out more of Obscura’s incredible work on their website.[h/t – Vice][Cover photo via Obscura Digital]
Florida Jam is set to take place on October 20th, at Boca Raton’s Sunset Cove Amphitheater. Earlier in the year, Allman Brothers Band guitarist Dickey Betts would headline the festival, as part of this 2018 comeback tour following his retirement announcement three years ago. In the months since, Betts has toured across the United States, with sporadic headlining shows and festival sets, including at the highly anticipated Peach Festival in Scranton, Pennsylvania, in mid-July. However, recently, Florida Jam shared with fans that Dickey Betts cancelled his performance at Florida Jam. In his stead, Gov’t Mule has been tapped to headline the event with a 90-minute set, joining the lineup also featuring The Elvin Bishop Band and Eric Gales.Florida Jam was previously scheduled to take place on May 19th, coming at the start of Dickey Betts’ comeback tour. However, weather forced the festival to be canceled, with the scheduled time moving five months later to October 20th. An announcement posted by Florida Jam’s promoter, Music Jam Productions, notedWithout getting into drama related to Dickey Betts, we will just say that he canceled his appearance without any explanation. We take issue with that decision, especially after he agreed to the new date of October 20 from the prior May 19 rain date. Unfortunately this is not the first time Betts has canceled shows in South Florida. We placed trust in him at great expense. However we are more than thrilled to have the very professional, reliable and talented Gov’t Mule come in and take over as the headliner.
Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros Angels starting pitcher Griffin Canning, who missed much of spring training with an elbow issue, was cleared to resume throwing after a follow-up evaluation this week, General Manager Billy Eppler said Wednesday.Canning underwent a platelet-rich plasma injection on March 6 after several rounds of diagnostic tests failed to show any structural damage that could explain the discomfort in his elbow. The tests showed only “chronic changes,” which amounts to simple wear.Canning will gradually increase the intensity of his throwing, and he could be pitching from a mound by the end of April, Eppler said.The Angels had been preparing to start the season with Canning on the injured list, but the coronavirus shutdown has pushed back the start of the season far enough that the former Santa Margarita High and UCLA standout could be available whenever the season begins.
