To celebrate the release of their inbound fourth album i,i, Bon Iver are embarking on an extensive tour across the U.S. If you’re teetering on the fence about buying a ticket and wondering what those shows might look like, good news: The band shared a mini-documentary titled Autumn on Wednesday to show off what the experience is shaping up to be.
Like Bon Iver’s music, the live show is clearly going to be a multi-sensory experience. Autumn goes really in depth in showing off the technology and minds behind the show. The sound mix is being programmed through a 360-degree PA system, while the dynamic visuals are reflected through a set of moving mirrors designed by Bon Iver’s artistic director, Michael Brown. While not getting lost in the weeds, Autumn does a great job of highlighting all the technical minutiae that goes into a great live show.
Autumn was directed by Andrew Swant and produced by WePresent, which is the editorial branch of file transfer company WeTransfer.
