Virtual Reality music video with live and rendered 360-video production, original video, 3D content, and spatial audio mix. Release in 2017. Filmed at National Sawdust.
A reference to Lake Gilmore in Wisconsin, where No Regular Play’s Greg Paulus spent time with his family, the track evokes a nostalgia for both a place of comfort and the experiences with loved ones. In producing a narrative for original video content, we wanted to blend a sense of personal memory with the out-of-body experience that comes with both joy and remembrance and loss. For the live show at National Sawdust, a visual set was prepared that blends a rorschach-like introspection with a bird’s-eye topology—primarily original video shot above New York City and found drone videos of aerial perspectives of Lake Gilmore—to give this simultaneous inward and outward perspective. We recorded 360-degree video of the performance to blend these spaces, along with binaural audio of the performance.
