As previously reported, Beck and director Chris Milk recently teamed on a Lincoln-sponsored performance that re-imagined David Bowie’s “Sound and Vision” with a 170-person orchestra. And though a clip of the song seemed to hit the internet pretty quickly, we now have the Chris Milk visual experience that is as insane as we had hoped.
Using technology that hasn’t been seen before, including 360-degree binaural recording device invented by Milk that looks like four faces with eight ears and captures audio for every angle the the viewer could face, Milk brings you a new way to witness a concert that would have seemed impossible not so long ago. Also debuted were 360-degree cameras that could see not only left and right, but also up and down, making this experience as intuitive as possible.
The result is a music video experience that allows you to actually watch the performance as if you were there, except now you can also view from the stage if you want, too. All you need is a computer with a webcam for facial tracking, and you can watch as the video moves with your face.
