Play with the new interactive video from Jeff Buckley
The new music video for Jeff Buckley is a cover of Bob Dylan's "Just Like a Woman". It's like one of those old choose-your-own-adventure books from the '80s — but this time, it's a love story that's in your hands.
This animated clip has been created by interactive media company Interlude in collaboration with Blind design studios.
“The goal of this video is for both existing and new fans to enjoy many ways of experiencing the music, and for each individual audience member to return over and over to be involved with the emotion differently each time,” said Yoni Bloch, Interlude CEO and co- founder.
The animated clip allows you to explore the various phases of a single love story — the honeymoon phase, the heartbreak, the breakup, the reunion.
You can click on 73 different story cells to change the narrative, and there are around 1 sexdecillion ways that the story could play out, according to the video's creators. For the record, that's a "one" with 51 zeros after it.
You can control the narrative musically as well. The video starts with just Buckley's voice accompanied by a guitar — but from there, it can go in several different directions. A piano, a full orchestration and a choir can join in, depending on your choices. In fact, there are over 16,000 different music combinations possible — so good luck listening to it the same way twice.
And now...is up to you!
