about the project.

Aurora is a three-movement multimodal audiovisual immersive theatrical experience with a custom-designed installation-build to showcase novel patent-pending audio technology invented by PhD candidate Ethan Castro.

Designing the Aurora experience

We wanted to create a memorable audio-visual experience that would captivate audiences from any generation into the consequences of climate change. 

Our goal with Aurora was to not only showcase ResonX, but deliver an important message about our Earth’s current path that would resonate with individuals of all ages. We did this through the combination of multiple senses, and it would not have been possible without the support of our partners and artists involved. Big shoutout to EPSON, RabCup, Max Louis Creative, and many more!
