DISTURBED RELEASES VIRTUAL REALITY EXPERIENCE
FOR HIT SONG “THE SOUND OF SILENCE”
Burbank, CA — October 28, 2016 – Disturbed has released a virtual reality experience for their Certified Platinum single “The Sound of Silence” via Littlstar, the premiere global network dedicated to immersive virtual reality and 360 video. The video was produced by Dekker Dreyer of Clever Fox, and was directed by Matt Mahurin, who also created the visually stunning official video for “The Sound of Silence” which has accumulated more than 125M Youtube views.
Set in a dystopian world, the VR experience expands on the universe first introduced in the official video. Director Matt Mahurin explains “It was a thrill and a challenge (and maybe a bit ironic) to use the innovative and immersive world of VR to explore the disconnect of direct human connection that results from the addictive world of social media.”
Fans can experience “The Sound of Silence” through Littlstar’s apps for the web, iOS, Android, VR headsets including the Samsung Gear VR, HTC Vive and Oculus Rift, Sony’s Bravia TV, Apple TV and the new PSVR.
