U2 in VR

I mixed the first of its kind Virtual Reality experience for U2. “Song for Someone” is a revolutionary and groundbreaking sonic experience in immersive audio and mixing. Directed by Chris Milk for his company VRSE.  Filmed  in 11 countries all over the world, from France to Thailand. It won the 2016 Vision Summit award for Best Live Action VR Experience.

Another huge band joins Apple Music ranks this week, as U2 has revealed a partnership with the company. Unlike many music-based VR experiences that run on mobile HMDs, this new piece works with the PC-based Oculus Rift, though can also be viewed on the former. The video consists of a 360 degree Virtual Reality video in which viewers can watch band members Bono and The Edge perform ‘Song for Someone’ to the camera. The video is shot in a range of  locations, including some fan’s homes and inside an arena that the band played at during this most recent tour. 

The video was created by VRSE, the VR production company behind some of the most well-known 360 videos  such as Clouds Over Sidra. For those that won’t get a chance to see the experience on-location it can also be viewed on mobile devices via the Vrse mobile app on both iOS, Android and Gear VR. It can then be played from within the Gear VR or Google Cardboard compatible HMDs for free.
