360 Degree Virtual Reality Music Video - Maxwell Powers

According to Ross, “Maxwell Powers’ music combines classic electro pop influences with modern sensibilities,” and the video above was created for the release of the single Stereo / Video in which “Maxwell Powers teamed up with Matthew Childers of Digital Introspect to create quite possibly the trippiest VR music video made to date.”
What makes the video so unique is that, according to Ross, “Unlike most VR music videos which are live action, the video combines fractal geometry, drawn images and point maps projected on virtual screens. The imagery is other-worldly and psychedelic, while also hearkening back to early 80s music videos. If TV killed the radio star, then perhaps VR will kill the music video?”
