Alternative X debuts in the Hansen Dome Theatre

Dani Weigand

Attention Cosmic Light Show fans! You asked, we listened!

Audience members suggested we feature alternative music in our light shows. During the past several months, our production staff and show technicians have worked to develop an alternative music playlist and enhanced the songs with amazing three dimensional visuals, full color lasers and real-time effects.

Alternative X made its debut in the Hansen Dome Theatre July 9, 2010 and features music from Audioslave,  Beck, Linkin Park, Nine Inch Nails, 311, Modest Mouse, Smashing Pumpkins, Tool, Nirvana, Muse and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

If your lasts light show experience was with “Laser Shows” back in the 70s and 80s, we highly recommend you come “see the music with your eyes.” We guarantee the experience is nothing like ‘old school’ laser effects you were used to.

                                                                        Just how different are Cosmic Light Shows?

To better take advantage of the 13,000 digital watts of surround sound in the dome, each musical piece has been remastered for 5.1 surround sound optimization. The projection technology in the dome uses six DLP projectors to display high resolution graphic images on the 55-foot diameter screen (a total of 7 million pixels to be exact). Add a 12-degree tilt to the screen, and audience members feel like they are being immersed in the content of the show.

Alternative X plays in the Hansen Dome Theatre on Thursday evenings at 8 p.m. and Friday and Saturday evenings at 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. View the trailer and buy tickets on our website.
