RECOMBINANT festival is a showcase of 360-degree spatial cinema and sound, and live audio-visual performances developed in collaboration with Recombinant Media Labs over the last twenty years.

This San Francisco re-launch of the historic 10-screen CineChamber environment at the Gray Area Grand Theater propels audiences into a VR mindset without the headset; a platform of virtual and augmented reality elements, cultivating a shared experience of immersive panorama.

The surround screenings are followed by dynamic live performances from trailblazing artists; the world premiere of Full Zero, a controversially seductive-yet-disturbing, A/V performance by Ulf Langheinrich; the return of the seminal Motion Control MODELL 5 epic by Granular Synthesis; William Bennett's fearlessly percussive voodoo electronic / noise project Cut Hands; and culminating with a rare re-engagement of Maryanne Amacher's massive multichannel tour-de-force Plaything.


A five-day series starting with three nights of screenings in the iconic CineChamber. The final two days of the Festival include the Re-cog-ignition Symposium and two nights of wraparound audio-visual performances. Each CineChamber program runs twice a night, with tickets sold separately for each screening.
