Seattle, Wash. - (March 6, 2000) - The Fifteenth Annual Induction Ceremony for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame will be held on Monday, March 6th, at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City. VH1 will exclusively air an edited version of the ceremony on Wednesday, March 8th, at 9 PM EST. Onadime's real-time music visualization software will be used to supply continuous backgrounds for this year's Induction Ceremony.
"As if Painted Live" On-Screen
At sites around the stage, Onadime's instant-response Compositions will move to sounds as they are played, sung or spoken. Onadime Compositions will appear "as if painted live before the eyes of the audience", according to Bruce Mitchell, Onadime President and CEO. "Their visual effects will grow and move and change on every screen as the sounds of the show grow and move and change."
Live Visualization Compositions
In the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, multiple televisions behind frosted screens will be animated by Onadime Compositions. Onadime Compositions are like multimedia songs. They move like movies. But Compositions are not movies. They are not animations. They are live visualizations responding to the instant's input. As the human body moves differently in different situations, Onadime Compositions move differently to different music. When played into an Onadime Composition, songs from Chuck Berry, Bush, Beck, Bonnie Raitt, the Beatles, and the Beastie Boys show off their differences visually.
A selection of Onadime Compositions was picked by the producers for use in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony. Those Compositions were then licensed for commercial use in the show. At the Onadime website, the Onadime Player™ is available free with sample Compositions for personal and noncommercial use. Compositions for commercial use must be licensed separately.
Onadime Composition Selection
The producers of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony chose which Compositions to project at any given time from Compositions created by Onadime artists with soon-to-be-released Onadime Composer™ software. Compositions to be used in the Induction Ceremony include Atmo-Spheric and Fireworks by Cieu Lien Tong; Plasma Dancer, Cosmic Tagging and Automatic Writing by Randall Jones; Rama Sitar Mandala Mantra by Edd Cox; Waves by Geoffrey Coco; Circle Squared by Colormind; and Purple Curls and Swimming Bouquet by Phillip Reay.
