The Evolution of the Mandala, 1977
Symphony of Oneness is a project which Norman B. Miller began in the mid 1970s. First dubbed The Evolution of the Mandala, this innovative multimedia documentary was presented to live audiences utilizing twin Omegatron projectors synced with an audio soundtrack. The storyline encompassed the awe of creation, the perils of pollution, a call for oneness (unity in caring for each other and for Planet Earth), and the lost wisdom of ancient cultures (including meditational centering via mandalic forms in nature, art, physiology and theology). The music and narrative covered a spectrum of religions and spiritualities around the globe.
Symphony of Oneness, the movie
Under development is a new feature-length movie adaptation of the original 1977 Evolution of the Mandala multimedia show. Symphony of Oneness will reflect some of the original concepts but will have a largely new narrative and new imagery. The "docu-opera" is being produced in high definition 4K resolution. Additional imagery is being provided by mountain guides who have traversed high mountains in Nepal, Spain, South America, Colorado, Washington and Alaska. Some stock photography will be used.
