Watch A Perfect Circle’s 2-D hologram video for “TalkTalk”
Posted on 23 May 2018
By abc-digitalThe deluxe box set version of A Perfect Circle's new album Eat the Elephant is accompanied by what's billed as the first "hologram album" -- a 58-minute, 360-degree visual projection that plays alongside the music. In case you didn't drop the $125 for the collection, APC has shared a two-dimensional version of the visual that accompanies the single "TalkTalk" via Billboard.com. The frenetic clip begins with a young girl playing on a swing set and ends with the tentacled heart from the Eat the Elephant cover descending onto the screen. Speaking to Billboard, A Perfect Circle vocalist Maynard James Keenan says that the hologram was "one of those escalating ideas." That idea was then handed off to photographer and filmmaker Steven Sebring, who's also worked with Patti Smith. "As far as actual choosing of people to be within the images and what it was going to look like and what they would be doing, that was all on [Sebring]," Keenan says. A Perfect Circle is currently touring the U.S. in support of Eat the Elephant. Following a European run over the summer, they'll launch another U.S. leg in October. Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
