Experience Amplify in VR and immerse yourself fully in our musical world.

Amplify 360

Experience Amplify 360 from the comfort of your living-room with our new app.

What ties this show all together, is the opportunity to explore Indigenous ideas and world views bound by a shared ancestral history. We decided to push the exploration further and explore those ideas using modern technology. Our 360 app is the result of this experiment in story telling.

Our VR expert Nyla innuksuk from Mixtape VR created a couple of 360 videos for the show in 2019. Tyson Lupul our full stack developper build a TV set application to preview them in your browser. We hope you enjoy using this app as much as we did putting it together!

The Project

  • woman dancing
  • 360 image of the dance round and the planet

Our AmplifyTV APP is based on the idea and symbolic significance of the circle in indigenous culture. The symbol repeats itself through the subject of the videos, the dance circle, through the medium itself, 360 videos, and finally through the display, the rounded vintage TV set that echos the TV set in the final episode. In this experiement we put you, the audience, in control of the viewing experience. You can now participate in a new kind of story-telling that transcends media and time.

You can pan around the Music video by clicking and dragging on desktop, or panning on mobile. Feel free to turn on or off the sound or change the channels to watch a different 360 video. We hope you enjoy this experience!
