Boston Museum of Science's Planetarium gets signature theme from OBT..

OBT Music composed a custom 6 minute long signature theme for the Charles Hayden Planetarium at the Boston Museum of Science. Tom Martin and Tom Phillips composed to a Quicktime animatic representation of what will be projected on the inside of the dome. The Planetarium is completely refurbished with a $9 million budget which was used to install a surround sound system, a new Zeiss projection system, and a truly anechoic environment for the theater. The signature or "Preshow" visuals take visitors to the Planetarium on a journey from the comfort of inside the dome to outside of our galaxy and beyond. The music composed for this journey captures the excitement and wonder of the journey. The premiere is scheduled for early February 9, 2011.
