Arrizza Under the Stars is a new, exclusive planetarium live performance by local artist and musician Yannaki Arrizza, based on his recent 2022 album release Astronomia. The music includes brilliant electronic soundscapes that combine digital and analog synthesizer sounds along with modern textures provided by the latest digital-audio technologies. Astronomia is reminiscent of the soundtrack for the popular Netflix original Stranger Things, combined with deeper experimentations in electronic and ambient realms similar to the popular synth sounds of the 1970s and early 1980s often heard in science-fiction films of the time. The words thought provoking, hopeful, mysterious, and moody come to mind.
Yannaki’s music is a perfect complement (or maybe it’s the other way around!) to the spacey visual landscapes the planetarium is capable of providing with its cutting-edge fulldome video technology. Audiences can expect to be transported into immersive worlds and interstellar mediums that transcend both space and time and where the only limit is the imagination. This live performance includes artistic landscapes, original fulldome 3D artwork, projections of starfields, and deep-space objects, and includes colorful laser lights through a haze of fog.
This one-time performance is exclusive and can be seen only at the Reichert Planetarium!
CDs and merchandise will be available for purchase.
Reichert Planetarium Director Dave Bush, says “We are thrilled to be working with Yannaki. He is such a motivated and talented musician. His new album, Astronomia, is a perfect match for the planetarium. It has been so much fun creating and combining the images and lasers to go along with such an incredible piece of musical work. I have personally become a fan! The audience is in for an amazing experience.
