Arcade Fire, trailblazers of the interactive video, have released one for “Reflektor.” It’s a virtual projection by Vincent Morisset and to watch, you need Google Chrome and either a mouse or webcam and a smartphone or tablet. Filmed in Jacmel, Haiti, “the story follows a young woman who travels between her world and our own.” Check it out here or watch a screengrab of the action.
To recap, Arcade Fire’s Reflektor is out 10/29 on Merge. It might be a double album and the cover might be this. They’re reportedly playing a Montreal salsa club called Salsathèque tonight and definitely playing the season premiere of SNL 9/28.
