Hologlyphics is the art of performing true 3D animations along with with music.
It combines elements of holography, music, video synthesis, visionary film, electronic music, sculpture and improvisation to create a unique new artform. Emphasis is focused on exploration of new, previously unseen 3D animations, patterns, scenes and glyphs, not on photorealistic imagery.
These spatial visuals are seen in full 3D without glasses. Although not the same technical process as holography, the visual result is the same, a True 3D image with full horizontal parallax. Horizontal parallax allows you not only to see the animation in 3D, but to see all views of the animation scene within a 90 degree viewing range. As you walk left to right, the perspective of the image changes as in the real world.
The Hologlyphic Funkalizer is a performance based Analog/Digital video synthesis system, that displays moving true 3D images, intertwined with music and spatial sound. Visuals and sounds are controlled by musical keyboards, acoustic instruments, sound sculptures and a unique control panel. Sounds can be associated and interact with images, modulate each other and undergo vast spatial transformations in the aural and visual realm.

Nate Boyce's analog and digital skills merge to form entirely new and insanely psychedelic videos that explore the thresholds of perceptual ambiguity. Oakland duo Chen Santa Maria mix electro acoustic sound sources, samplers, drum machines, and guitars to hone their varied outputs. Their collaboration results in stunning and immersive performances of aural and optic strobe.
