Together with MTN Gods, we teamed up with collaborators Microsoft & Listen, to create an interactive music video for Nao's song Orbit. Using a host of tech including AI, Depthkit, and the Microsoft Kinect, we developed the music video in WebGL for desktop & mobile. Our team designed the look and feel, coded particle systems, camera moves, and integrated realistic constellation data from the night sky.
