Published Aug 31, 2017A Tribe Called Red landed a spot on the Polaris Music Prize short list with their We Are the Halluci Nation LP, and their new 360-degree virtual reality video for the Black Bear-assisted "Indian City" is no less impressive.
The video's concept was developed by Nyla Innuksuk and the group's Bear Witness, and was shot on location at the Fort York National Historic Site in Toronto. The 360-degree clip was shot using 10 different cameras, with the footage then stitched together by Nunavut-based tech startup Pinnguaq.
The video and sound mix was completed by Nyla Innuksuk at NKSK Productions, with the goal of creating "a 'gaze-based sound experience."
As Innuksuk explained in a statement, "Depending on where you look within the video, the sound changes and adjusts. If you are looking at the b-boys, you are going to hear more of the electronic elements of the sound, and if you are looking at the Pow Wow dancers, you will hear more of the traditional Indigenous elements."
