I’ve just watched Beck’s reinvention of David Bowie’s ‘Sound and Vision’ called ‘Hello, Again’, the composition of the musicians and the overall performance was incredible. The creative flare that the performance had was similar to that of David Byrne’s work.
Beck has also collaborated with Director Chris Milk to expand this project into an immersive media experience. It allows viewers to cycle through various 360 lenses around the auditorium, as well as three different audio perspectives:
“an outer microphone that captures the 160+ musicians up close, an inner microphone that represents what the studio audience hears, and finally a central microphone that lets you hear what Beck hears.”
I’m looking forward to the interactive edition, which I’m assuming will be featured on Milk’s website: www.chrismilk.com
