is an audio visual project created and performed by Dominick Gray.
The "film concert" synchronizes live drumming, original music, and video projection, producing a full sensory experience in a concert or cinema setting. The music and visuals explore the ideas of progress, futurism, and the human experience. Telesonic 9000 has been performed in various concert halls, galleries, cultural centers, and festivals in Europe, Asia, and the USA.
Dominick Gray is an American-born, Berlin-based drummer and composer. In developing Telesonic 9000, Dom researched and re-assembled footage from over 300 archival films and blended them with an eclectic selection of original music and lively rhythms.
The debut album and film, Progress, was released in 2019.

"The mashup of video and music feels alternately bracing and hypnotic..."
"The music on Progress fizzes with optimism, with krautrock-fuelled grooves, YMO-style electronic twinkles and, most notably on ‘Build Today For a Better Tomorrow’, electro-funk workouts – all tied together by his hypnotic jazzy live drumming."
