Hologlyphics is the art of performing true 3D animations along with
with music. It combines elements of holography, music, video synthesis,
visionary film, electronic music, sculpture and improvisation to create
a unique new artform. Emphasis is focused on exploration of new,
previously unseen 3D animations, patterns, scenes and glyphs, not on
photorealistic imagery.

These spatial visuals are seen in full 3D without glasses.
Although not the same technical process as holography, the visual
result is the same, a True 3D image with full horizontal parallax.
Horizontal parallax allows you not only to see the animation in 3D, but
to see all views of the animation scene within a 90 degree viewing
range. As you walk left to right, the perspective of the image changes
as in the real world.

The Hologlyphic Funkalizer is a performance based
Analog/Digital video synthesis system, that displays moving true 3D
images, intertwined with music and spatial sound. Visuals and sounds
are controlled by musical keyboards, acoustic instruments, sound
sculptures and a unique control panel. Sounds can be associated and
interact with images, modulate each other and undergo vast spatial
transformations in the aural and visual

Nate Boyce痴 analog and digital skills merge to form entirely new
and insanely psychedelic videos that explore the thresholds of
perceptual ambiguity. Oakland duo Chen Santa Maria duo mix electro
acoustic sound sources, samplers, drum machines, and guitars to hone
their varied outputs. Their collaboration results in stunning and
immersive performances of aural and optic strobe.



Music by the Eyeful is a concert series at the Luggage Store
Gallery that features inventions in visual music: from
musician-filmmaker collaborations to optical instrument inventors,
performative projectionists, and experimental work that highlights the
sonic properties of visual art and the visual properties of music. Each
show includes public discussions with presenting artists to reveal
techniques, technologies and intent.
The 2008-09 program includes nine concerts of local, regional and
national artists who are working new frontiers in visual music and
