‘Gorillaz Spirit House’ coming to Brooklyn this month
Gorillaz‘ guest-filled new album Humanz will be out April 28 and part of celebration/hype will be something called the Gorillaz Spirit House, “an immersive, high-fidelity experience that will allow fans to physically explore the world of famed virtual band Gorillaz, including a real-life manifestation of the lounge in Gorillaz own home.” Co-presented by SONOS, Gorillaz Spirit House will be at Brooklyn from April 21-23 at Industria (39 South 5th Street). A little more info:
Sonos, the home sound system, has teamed up with Gorillaz to create three Spirit Houses in celebration of the band’s highly anticipated forthcoming new album “Humanz.” These thrilling spaces will see fans enter the band’s virtual home through an immersive, high fidelity experience in select cities, bringing the world of Gorillaz to life visually and sonically with the new Sonos PLAYBASE, the latest addition to Sonos’ family of home theater products.
Sonos and Gorillaz will transform raw spaces in several cities around the world into Gorillaz Spirit Houses. These spaces will include a real-life manifestation of Murdoc, 2D, Russel and Noodle’s lounge in Gorillaz’ own home, offering fans the opportunity to dive deeper into their world through exclusive music and visuals through physical installations and projection mapping technology.
“Come and bathe in high-tech sound, feast on unearthly visuals, and let the experience take you on the ultimate trip,” said songwriter and bassist Murdoc Niccals.
You can RSVP to visit the Gorillaz Spirit House.
After Brooklyn, the Spirit House moves to Berlin and Amsterdam.
