Today Gordi is thrilled to reveal “Buried City”, a one-of-a-kind immersive 3D live album experience featuring performances in 360-degree interactive format.
Filmed at Melbourne’s beautifully restored and multifaceted Le Bon Ton venue during quarantine closure, and re-rendered in 3D for the immersive experience, Gordi worked with award-winning video director and game engine designer, Melbourne-based South African creative, Michael Beets. Beets (who also directed Gordi’s “Bitter End” 360 video in 2017) has devised a self-contained world built across eight 3D rooms and four 360-degree performance spaces and mapped 2D projections. The experience features bespoke sound design by Gordi as well as a raft of hidden sound bytes, demo recordings, spoken word pieces and background stories to songs.
Reflecting on Buried City, Beets offers “I’m lucky to be able to work with an artist like Gordi who is willing to explore new ways of immersing audiences into musical experiences. Her music is so full of emotion and packed with imagery, that I thought it would be compelling to immerse audiences into that world. As we increasingly embrace virtual worlds, I think albums can become these beautiful and intimate visual experiences.”
