The team at Vice magazine has masterminded some commissioned works of art for the upcoming Coachella Music Festival. The assignment? “Conceive of new audiovisual experiences to enhance and re-imagine musical performance”.
The result is a collaboration between Spiritualized’s member J. Spaceman and filmmaker Jonathan Glazer. The duo are creating a physical manifestation of the Spiritualized track “Ladies and Gentlemen, We Are Floating in Space.” In a cathedral-like space, designed by Graft Architects, isolated pools of light will appear, each containing a different component of the original track.
The new interactive installation will be unveiled on the Coachella festival grounds.
To get a little taste-test, see the trailer at The Creators Project.
