Canadian indie rockers Arcade Fire have formed an unlikely yet powerful collaboration with artist Chris Milk and web giant Google to produce an online experience like no other. Together they launched an interactive video project set to the band’s track We Used to Wait.
Viewers begin the experience by providing their childhood address. The video experience then unfolds in multiple windows, taking viewers on a tour of their hometown to the music.
The site states that the user must download Google Chrome to view the video, but it should work on any browser that supports HTML5. It seems that Google’s main involvement was in providing access to their google maps system. Stipulating that the user should only use Google’s Chrome browser may have just been a marketing ploy, but the Lucid team agree it’s a rather clever one.
