MESMERICA 360: A Visual Music Journey

A mind-expanding 360 projection fulldome show with 5.1 surround soundtrack

“I want ‘Mesmerica’ to inspire you into taking a journey with me inside the mind, to engage your senses and feelings with a miraculous alchemy of sound and light!” — James Hood


In these fast-paced, and often challenging times, music and art can provide us with relief from stress, and provide us with a sense of peace, tranquility, and renewal.

Experience the magic of this 360 degree immersive art and music cinema experience in the Sky Theater at the University of North Texas.

Mesmerica is a visual music journey that brings the mesmerizing music of Grammy-nominated composer and percussionist, James Hood together with visually-hypnotic, 3D animated art curated from artists around the world to create an immersive, transcendent experience designed to soothe the mind and stimulate the senses.

Mesmerica premiered at the Fleet Planetarium in San Diego, California in June 2018 to two sold-out audiences and has been consistently filling venues with ongoing performances since October.

About James Hood:
James Hood is renowned as a vital and versatile musical pioneer. His lengthy and varied musical resume includes playing drums in The Pretenders, an ongoing two-decades-plus run as mastermind of the visionary ambient/electronica act Moodswings, and an expansive array of production and soundtrack projects.

In 2014, James launched the album Ceremony, an exploration of a uniquely mesmeric melodic instrument — the PanArt Hang. The “sonic incense” of this recording spoke to fans of ambient artists such as Brian Eno, Phillip Glass and those seeking a peaceful time-slowing soundtrack. Ceremony was a resounding success, introducing tens of thousands of listeners to a compelling sonic experience, and reaching #1 on World and New Age charts in US and Canada. James repeated that success once again with the release of Pure Ceremony in 2015.​

The story now continues with the global release of James third album, Mesmerica. This new two disc album finds James further deepening his sonic explorations, adding additional instrumentation and rhythmic textures to his now signature soundscapes.
