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 Dome Theatre at TELUS Spark located in Calgary, Alberta.     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, transcendant 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.   We're delighted to now bring it to Calgary for special weekend night cinema showings.  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.   For more information visit 5:30pm Shows Doors Open at Venue: 4:30pm  VIP Early Access: 5:00-5:15pm  General Admission Seating: 5:15pm  Show Begins Promptly: 5:30pm  7:00pm Shows VIP Early Access: 6:40-6:50pm General Admission Seating: 6:50pm Show Begins Promptly: 7:00pm  8:30pm Shows VIP Early Access: 8:10-8:20pm General Admission Seating: 8:20pm Show Begins Promptly: 8:30pm * * *  Mesmerica is just over 1 hour long Food and beverage will be available onsite as Social Eatery will be open for this event.  All food and beverages will need to be consumed in the Social Eatery.  Absolutely no food or drink is allowed in the Dome Theatre and we do not allow outside food or beverage. **IMPORTANT TO PLEASE NOTE**:   PLEASE PLAN TO ARRIVE ON TIME AS, DUE TO DARKNESS IN THE THEATRE AND SAFETY CONCERNS, THERE WILL BE NO LATE SEATING AFTER THE SHOW STARTS.   Make a day of your visit to the TELUS Spark!  ABOUT TELUS Spark:  It all started with a spark.
