Mesmerica premiered at the Fleet Planetarium in San Diego, California in June 2018 and has since gone on to become one of the most successful music fulldome show in history, selling out over 200 shows in California alone, and playing simultaneously in 14 cities across the US and Canada.   We're delighted to now bring it to Columbus 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 Show Doors Open at Venue: 5:00pm  VIP Early Pre-Seating: 5:00-5:15pm  General Admission Seating: 5:15pm  Show Begins Promptly: 5:30pm  7:00pm Show VIP Early Pre-Seating: 6:35-6:45pm General Admission: Seating 6:45-7pm Show Begins Promptly: 7:00pm  8:30pm Show VIP Early Pre-Seating: 8:05-8:15pm General Admission Seating: 8:15pm Show Begins Promptly: 8:30pm * * *  Mesmerica is just over 1 hour long **PLEASE NOTE**:   PLEASE PLAN TO ARRIVE ON TIME AS, DUE TO DARKNESS IN THE PLANETARIUM THEATER AND SAFETY CONCERNS, THERE WILL BE NO LATE SEATING AFTER THE SHOW STARTS.    Make a day of your visit to the COSI and the COSI Planetarium!  ABOUT COSI:  COSI is a nationally esteemed science center that has delighted Central Ohio with all things science for 55 years, inspiring interest in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) topics and delivering our experiential, "hands-on fun" brand of learning.
