The Aura-Luna project, produced by Dosch and published by Sony Music, contains a CD of musical scores composed and ar ranged by Rupert Schellenberger. To help establish a visual context for the songs, Dosch created a booklet of 3D imagery that ac companies the music "to help your imagination travel into the worlds of Aura-Luna," a name that, like the project itself, evolved from the creator's mind.
"I always wanted to create a place where the listener is able to escape and relax," Dosch says. "To support this, I didn't just create images; I created visual worlds." To design the 14 locations of Aura-Luna-one for each song on the CD-Dosch used NewTek's (San Antonio, TX) Lightwave and his company's own DoschTextures, DirtyUp, and Aqua-Pack Lightwave plug-ins. A selection of images from a few of these worlds is displayed on the following pages.
The Aura-Luna CD is currently available in Germany and will be released in the US during the spring of 2000. Additional information about the project is available through Dosch Design at www.doschdesign.de. -Karen Moltenbrey
