Check out this interesting music video for Wishes by Beach House. It was directed by Eric Wareheim of Tim and Eric’s Awesome Show and features Ray Wise of Twin Peaks, Reaper and a numbe rof other awesome things. I love stuff like this.

Beck teamed up with over 160 other musicians to create a 360 degree soundscape reimagining of David Bowie’s song Sound and Vision.
The Hello, Again performance started with an idea — Beck would reimagine David Bowie’s classic, “Sound and Vision.” But it became more than another cover. It became an experience that presented a fresh take on the possibilities of the once familiar, for both the audience and the performers.
In collaboration with Beck and a “band” of more than 160 diverse musicians, Director Chris Milk created a concert experience that was fully immersive for both the audience and the performers. By capturing the concert with 360-degree cameras and binaural microphones, online viewers will have the opportunity to experience the show from any and every seat in the house.
