Sound and Vision
Director: Chris Milk
- 2014 Sundance Film Festival
When Beck reimagined David Bowie’s 1977 song “Sound and Vision,” Chris Milk set out to literally recreate the experience of cinematic sound and vision. Milk captured the performance using newly patented technologies like full spherical image capture and 360-degree binaural/multinaural audio recording. Now reengineered for a virtual reality platform, this special presentation allows the user to inhabit the first live-action virtual reality (VR) film for the Oculus Rift. As audiences are able to stand on the stage with Beck or roam the audience and orchestra, immersed in audiovisual richness and freedom of movement, the viewing experience of a recorded concert is radically transformed.
