Ryan Hemsworth feat. Kotomi: Surrounded
on 16 December 2015
In the music video for electronic dance track "Surrounded," Ryan Hemsworth dons a spandex motion-capture suit, an Oculus Rift Gear VR and performs in an imagined world. Though he's jamming out alone in "real life," vocalist Kotomi and a bandmate support him on the virtual stage (set inside a cathedral that might be familiar for Assassin's Creed players) and they're joined by dancing fans from around the world, who are wearing their own headsets. There's a fine line between connection and isolation here, and director Martin Pariseau gives viewers goosebumps and a crazy urge to "plug into" this concert themselves.
