A Perfect Circle's New LP Becomes the "World's First Hologram Album"
The "hologram" version arrives as part of a box set and was created by filmmaker Steven Sebring
Published Apr 30, 2018A Perfect Circle returned with their first album in 14 years, Eat the Elephant, earlier this month, and details of the album's deluxe edition have now surfaced. As part of the package, the set will allow listeners to experience the effort as a "hologram album," touted as the first of its kind.
An unboxing video below shows that the "hologram" treatment features a 58-minute visual recreation of the album, created by documentarian Steven Sebring (Horses: Patti Smith and Her Band). The hologram follows the album's 12-track arc through the eyes of a young girl.
To view the "hologram," users will need to download an app using a smartphone and place an upside-down prism on the screen, allowing them to view the image.
"Having Maynard and Billy's trust to create this for A Perfect Circle was a true artist's dream," Sebring said in a statement. "Their 14-year break allowed technology to catch up with their groundbreaking music and gave me the chance to apply new ideas of dimensional capture to this stunning album."
The deluxe box set also includes the album in more traditional formats, packing in a CD, LP and a download card. You can find an unboxing video with further footage of the prism in action below.
