A 360˚ “FANTASIA” EXPERIENCE FOR THE ALBUM IN THE STREAMING WORLD
Collaborating with Grammy/Nobel Prize-winning inventors Nokia Bell Labs, and technologists Design I/O (TATE/MOMA), singer songwriter Beatie Wolfe creates a ‘world’s first’ way to “stream” an album in the digital age - incorporating real-time AR visuals that unpack the artwork, lyrics and music as a 360˚ “Fantasia” experience for the album in the streaming world. This launches May 2017 out of Bell Labs' anechoic chamber, one of the world's quietest and most sonically isolated spaces.
The 'Raw Space' experience will launch May 5 2017 as a 24-hour streaming VR experience and as a series of live VIP Augmented Reality performances in the Bell Labs' anechoic chamber, the world's quietest room.
Its launch marks the 50-year anniversary of E.A.T. (experiments in art and technology) at Nokia Bell Labs’, with Beatie following in the footsteps of John Cage, Philip Glass, David Bowie and Andy Warhol as past collaborators.
‘Raw Space’ also brings into play a technological first: combining live, 360˚ stereoscopic video and real-time generative AR visuals to create a modern, Fantasia-like live streamed album experience that can be viewed on VR headsets, Google Daydream, iPads, and modern mobile devices.
