Watch: Rome – “3 Dreams of Black”
Remember Arcade Fire’s interactive video for “We Used to Wait”? Well, Danger Mouse and Daniele Luppi took a similar approach for “3 Dreams of Black” from their collaborative album, Rome. The interactive video was directed by Chris Milk and created by the smarty pants at Google using Google Chrome’s WebGL technology. Consequently, you’ll need Google Chrome to view it… or navigate through the three dream worlds that color the clip.
As an issued press release explains, “The worlds are experienced as 2D drawings and animations, interspersed with interactive 3D sequences in which the viewer becomes an active participant, guiding their own journey through the unfolding narrative. Participants can even create their own virtual artifacts — the best of which will then be integrated into the experience and become a part of other users’ dreams.” In other words, click here and have fun.
