did the fulldome installation at Xavier's School for Gifted
Youngsters, but Goto claims to have done the only four-pi steradian
installation, so I can only assume it was they. Much more
interesting would be to know who did the installation of the Danger
Room, since that's a much more impressive bit of technology.

the medium, willing to allow use of their music in the dome, etc.
One of the challenges with "SonicVision" was acquiring all the music
rights. Our connections with MTV made that a lot easier, but it was
still a costly and time-consuming effort. Plus, we negotiated rights
based on our non-profit status, so it would be even more challenging
for a commercial institution. If, on the other hand, Laurie Anderson
or Philip Glass decide that they want to collaborate on a production
for the medium...
Just my $0.02.
