Spontaneous Fantasia visits Three Stages

By
From page B9 | March 02, 2012 |

Intertwining a live musical and visual experience, Academy Award winner J-Walt utilizes a drawing tablet, a sound system and a joy stick to create Spontaneous Fantasia, a virtual world created on a giant screen in real time, all before a live audience.

J-Walt utilizes the latest in interactive computer graphics techniques to bring paintings to life. The result is an improvised real-time immersive animated movie that incorporates elements of animation, theater, dance, painting, sculpture, music, architecture and interactive art.

Executive Director Dave Pier noted that, “J-Walt’s work has compared to laser shows or a Pink Floyd concert updated for a new century, but even that doesn’t do it justice. We’re very happy to have him for three shows in the intimacy of our 200 seat City Studio Theater.”

Pioneering multimedia artist J-Walt is a performer interactive designer, filmmaker, graphic artist and composer.

For two decades, he has been at the forefront of interactive art and computer performance, expanding the uses of computer animation into uncharted territories.

His Spontaneous Fantasia performances combine aspects of animation, video games, music, theater, dance and architecture into a seamless new art form. He has performed for thrilled audiences around the US as well as in Amsterdam, Hamburg and Edmonton.

In March 2006, J-Walt won a Technical Academy Award for his development of a real-time pre-visualization system, and in 2003, he received a Themed Entertainment Award for a digital puppetry attraction.

He produced location-based video games for Sony. He was a founding member of Disney’s VR studio, which created a state-of-the-art virtual reality experience for Disney’s EPCOT center in 1995.

J-Walt’s Spontaneous Fantasia will perform in Three Stages on Friday, March 2 and Saturday, March 3 at 8 p.m., and again on Sunday, March 4 at 2 p.m.

Tickets are $20-$25 with student tickets available for $12 (student ID is required at the door). Tickets are available online at threestages.net or from Three Stages Ticket Office at 916-608-6888 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and two hours before show time. Three Stages is located at 10 College Parkway in Folsom.

On line video of the work can be seen at spontaneousfantasia.com/videos/.
