Beck's Bowie Remake Comes to Life

Rolling Stone

Beck's opulent nine-minute remake of David Bowie's "Sound and Vision" came to life last week when he reimagined the 1977 single with a 157-piece orchestra conducted by his father, David Campbell. Beck teamed with director Chris Milk and Lincoln for a special concert video of the performance featuring three 360-degree cameras, and also 360-degree microphones, for an especially immersive experience.

"It was an experiment and an opportunity to try something completely irrational," Beck told Rolling Stone last week. "I attempted to conjure some scenario that could only exist in this kind of space for a one-time performance. It's doing something you could never do on a tour. I was thinking a lot about Busby Berkeley films and multiples of musicians and dancers." A fully interactive 360-degree video is on its way; visit Lincoln's Hello Again for more details and further installments.
