UW Cowboy Sandbox to Feature ‘A/V Extravaganza’ March 30

Augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR) and blended reality (XR) experiences and live performances are planned Saturday, March 30, from 7-10 p.m. at the Harry C. Vaughan Planetarium and SciDIY Makerspace, both located in the University of Wyoming’s Physical Sciences Building.

“A/V Extravaganza,” open to the public, is hosted by UW’s Innovation Network (UWIN) in collaboration with the Harry C. Vaughan Planetarium.

“Do not miss this unique opportunity to be part of a cutting-edge exploration of sound, visuals and technology at the intersection of art and science,” says Jane Crayton, UWIN makerspace coordinator. “Join us for an evening that promises to transcend the boundaries of reality and leave you with memories that linger in the cosmos.”

Using a custom application, audience members can actively participate by using their mobile phones to contribute their voices to a sprawling Frippertronics loop.

-- “A sonic exploration led by Fox and Mulder,” featuring the dynamic duo from Mother Earth Sound System, will unleash a mind-bending live PA (personal appearance) and DJ set within the celestial confines of the planetarium.

-- “DJ RIGZ: Unleashing the Power of Dubstep and Bass from Laramie” is an electrifying experience with DJ RIGZ, an up-and-coming local performer.

-- “Lights on Laramie Visual Artists: Crafting a  Visual Symphony” will feature CypherX and Jane daPain, artists from the Lights on Laramie production group. The artists will work their magic during the performances by DJ RIGZ and Fox and Mulder, transforming the planetarium into a canvas of artistic expression.
