Singer-songwriter and Smashing Pumpkins frontman, William Patrick Corgan has shared the video for "Aeronaut." This is a preview of what's to come with an immersive, virtual reality experience that will accompany Corgan's new record Ogilala.
The video was created inside a 3D world that was imagined by San Francisco artist and filmmaker, Danny Bittman and brought to life by the joint Viacom NEXT and Isobar team. By capturing Corgan's three-and-a-half-minute performance in volumetric video at Microsoft's Mixed Reality Capture Studios, Isobar, Viacom and Bittman, were able to use the Unity creation engine and Tilt Brush to create a world around him. The project is designed for room scale systems, initially for Microsoft's Mixed Reality headsets, with additional versions for other systems to follow.
