One of the cooler projects done recently with a blatant commercial sponsor, check out David Bowie's "Sound and Vision" performed by Beck with 160 musicians and director Chris Milk.  The first 2 minutes 30 seconds are a big dissonant buildup before the song starts at around the 3:08 mark.  When they finally settle into a groove, it sounds and looks great!  The Coda section from 6:06 to the end is absolutely sublime, with the musicians and gospel choir locking into a huge, powerful sound as Beck really lets loose as a vocalist.

Listen to Beck's performance with your headphones on for ideal sound, and check in the coming days for a 360-experience.

The Hello, Again performance started with an idea -- Beck would reimagine David Bowie's classic, "Sound and Vision." But it became more than another cover. It became an experience that presented a fresh take on the possibilities of the once familiar, for both the audience and the performers.

In collaboration with Beck and a "band" of more than 160 diverse musicians, Director Chris Milk created a concert experience that was fully immersive for both the audience and the performers. By capturing the concert with 360-degree cameras and binaural microphones, online viewers will have the opportunity to experience the show from any and every seat in the house. Coming soon to
