The Ultimate Sensory Mixtape
“The Journey Within,” a Cosm Studios Original, is a meticulously crafted, multi-sensory mixtape that weaves together the musical genius of David Bowie, Radiohead, Joseph Campbell, Matthew Dear, and more. Holmes combines these sonic masterpieces with a mesmerizing visual landscape.

Prepare to be transported from the mundane to a realm of wonder, fascination, and pure awe.
With decades of DJing and remixing expertise under his belt, Chris Holmes has crafted a magical world of light and color that promises to captivate your senses. His mixtape takes you on a multi-sensory voyage, guided by an expertly curated selection of tracks from iconic artists, avant-garde writers, and revolutionary thinkers who have profoundly influenced Holmes’ artistic journey. “The Journey Within” fosters an appreciation for the interconnectedness of all things by merging light, sound, technology, artistry, and the sheer marvels of Earth. Chris Holmes joins a prestigious lineup of artists in Cosm Studios’ Creator Program, alongside new media artist Nancy Baker Cahill and filmmaker Guy Reid. Together, they push the boundaries of immersive storytelling and design.
Inspired by the likes of Yayoi Kusama, James Turrell, and Dan Flavin, as well as Thomas Wilfred’s Clavilux and Laserium laser light shows, Holmes’ work unfolds as a journey into a transformative state of wonder and fascination. Each kaleidoscope in the experience reimagines the natural world, creating a mesmerizing spectacle of colors, patterns, and infinite possibilities on an unprecedented medium.
