BELLA GAIA – (Beautiful Earth) A Poetic Vision of Earth from Space
An Immersive World Music & Space Experience
A “new form of experiential portal…to make a deeper connection with our beautiful planet” (Examiner)
BELLA GAIA is an unprecedented audiovisual experience that combines NASA satellite imagery of Earth, time lapse nature photography, and cultural heritage footage with stirring live performances of music and dance from around the world.
Inspired by astronauts who spoke of the life changing power of seeing the Earth from space, director-composer Kenji Williams’ award winning BELLA GAIA successfully simulates the Overview Effect from space flight, by using NASA supercomputer data-visualizations with an “iridescent landscape of gossamer melodies and labyrinthine rhythms” (Nooga.com) to explore the relationship between humans and nature through time and space.
BELLA GAIA is “A stunning work of multimedia entertainment” (Phoenix New Times) with “haunting classical/world fusion music … creating a mesmerizing spectacle that should not be missed” (Huffington Post)
