A little post on love and music (both old and new)
(CBS News) Love is in the air for many right now with Valentine's Day approaching. And while your blogger here may not be one of the many who celebrate this holiday with someone special in their life, I am very much in love with the concept of love. And music. So here's a little post on both starting with an epic rendition involving two artists I am very passionate about: watch Beck reimagine David Bowie's legendary "Sound and Vision" in the music video above. It's a bit lengthy, but you really need to see this one.
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.
And where we saw the old reimagined in a new way with a performance that embraces my personal passion for music (and hopefully yours, too), let's turn the focus more directly on love with an endearing piece from one of The Feed's favorite experimental music groups, CDZA (short for Collective Cadenza). This time around they've taken a trip to a Senior Living Center to recreate the music and stories of weddings gone byin a tribute very fitting for Valentine's Day below. Go ahead and click play. And maybe grab a tissue.
