Smashing Pumpkins frontman William Patrick Corgan, as he is now known, has shared the new video for “Aeronaut,”. Described by a press release as a “2D preview of a forthcoming immersive virtuality reality experience,” the video was created inside a vibrant 3D world by San Francisco artist and filmmaker Danny Bittman. In it, Corgan sits at a massive, Tron-looking piano as kaleidoscopic visions of nature and the stars unfold behind him.
“By capturing Corgan’s three-and-a-half-minute performance in volumetric video at Microsoft’s Mixed Reality Capture Studios, Isobar, Viacom and Bittman, were able to use the Unity creation engine and Tilt Brush to create a world around him,” explains the press release. Watch it above.
