And they have done it again! Always setting musical trends, OK Go teamed up with director Trish Sie (sister of lead singer Damian Kulash), the modern dance troupe Pilobolus and a team from Google to create the latest HTML5 Chrome Experiment and musical experience.The project showcases the latest in modern browser technology, using 12 separate windows to create a kaleidoscopic dance that is partially choreographed by the viewer. At the beginning of the experience, users are invited to type a message in English, Japanese, or any language using the Roman or Katakana alphabets, and the message is incorporated into the dance. The New York Times Magazine will run a photo feature on the making of “All Is Not Lost“ this Sunday, July 31.
To celebrate the video’s premiere, OK Go and Pilobolus will screen the clip and perform a live version of “All Is Not Lost” tonight at the Joyce Theatre in New York City. The pre-order for the video, which will be released on August 9, launches today at http://www.okgo.net . A 3D version of “All Is Not Lost” is also available beginning today, exclusively on the Nintendo 3DS™ system, Nintendo’s newest hand-held system which lets users experience 3D games, take 3D pictures and watch 3D videos without the need for special glasses.
