MPC VR worked with Director Chris Milk and Vrse.works to bring his latest project to life for U2 and Apple Music. The experience, which made its soft debut on an Apple-branded ‘Experience Bus’ outside the band’s recent O2 Arena London shows, is now available on the Vrse.works app. In the experience, the viewer begins on an empty Toronto stage with U2, before transitioning to locations around the world to watch other fans in their own natural habitats singing along with the band. The video is a truly immersive musical and visual experience, as U2 perform the song all around you, interspersed with other musicians in countries around the world. Turning left or right within the headset, the binaural audio tracks the viewer based on where they are looking, to single out the sounds of different performers.
