Cinemaphonic is a visual/aural performance group who has performed to over 70 audiences throughout the midwest since 2012 whose tag line is "A sonic voyage through the screen of the mind." Cinemaphonic is a VJ/DJ odyssey that taps into the subconscious of Generation Media by communicating through sourced cultural relics of cinematic moments to induce specific emotive responses. It is an exploration of re-contextualizing visual and auditory nostalgia into something that speaks of cultural values, sometimes profound, at times facetious- even beautiful.
