The AlloSphere Research Group has had a busy and productive year despite the Covid19 pandemic. I was invited to make virtual presentations at a number of international conferences, including the prestigious Mutations Conference at the Akademie Schloss Solitude Stiftung des Offentlichen Rechts Solitude in Stuttgart and the internationally renowned Science Foo Camp, organized by Nature Magazine, O'Reilly Media, and Google at the Googleplex in Mountain View.
The AlloSphere Research Group also made incredible progress with our National Science Foundation grant visualizing atomistic data for our computational materials scientists in the California NanoSystems Institute.


The California 100 Initiative seeks to provide a transformative vision for California’s next century, with a focus on thirteen interrelated issues that affect people and the planet alike, in the medium as well as longer-term. Grounded in systematic research and evidence, deeply engaged with Californians around the state, and guided by commitments to innovation, resilience, inclusion, sustainability, and equity, this unique initiative is being led by Henry E. Brady, Dean of the Goldman School of Public Policy with support from the Goldman School at UC Berkeley. The AlloSphere Research Group’s role will be to analyze the history, current, and future directions of the digital multimedia field in the state, demonstrating how the arts have advanced technology and play an integral role in the future of information technology systems and content development, facilitating a new workforce of hybrids equipped to work in emergent media systems, and immersive art, from video gaming to museum installations, as well as research in the sciences in the area of scientific visualization. We will analyze the democratization of media arts and technology with the goal of inclusivity and incorporating this information into school systems, establishing a new paradigm for K-12 education.


James A. Moorer is an internationally-known figure in digital audio and computer music, with over 40 technical publications and four patents to his credit. Among his many prestigious awards, Dr. Moorer received the Audio Engineering Society’s Silver Award for Lifetime Achievement in 1991, as well as an Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Scientific and Engineering Oscar in 1996 for his pioneering work in the design of digital signal processing and its application to audio editing for film. Dr. Moorer will be premiering his newest immersive audio work made exclusively for the AlloSphere in collaboration with librettist writer and poet Donna Decker. The premiere will be scheduled within the next six months as we anticipate the opening of the AlloSphere to the general public. Newsletter recipients will receive an announcement.

We’re very proud to showcase our continuing progress. Feel free to share this newsletter.
