Thoughts on Hologram Concerts and Their Effect on Modern Music?

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by Bodeanly, Jun 12, 2019.

  1. I would rather Look at 360 music content in a VR headset.

    It sounds like you must have been to one of my gigs, which is weird since no one else has.
    I know, right?!

  3. I am for anything that gets Scott Thunes playing Zappa tunes “live” - well, Scott is live, FZ not so much.

    Don’t laugh. When I heard about BoilerRoom streaming DJ sets, I thought that was ludicrous. Yet here I am and there they are.

    LOL - This! So I can Tivo it and get to it later.
  7. You're storing your canned biscuits wrong! ;)

    I shudder to think what Mr. Cobain would have thought of corporate music cashing in on his likeness, post mortem, considering his not too subtle views while he was alive.

    I apologize for only reading through page 2, before commenting. I will read through the rest when I get home.

    But it would mean they'd be able to Jerry Bruckheimer / Michael Bay the heck out of the band smashing up their gear, for the finale.

    Don’t know the price of a ticket as someone took me there. It’s interesting to equated to a movie, I think that’s pretty close.

    I'm not gonna hold my breath waiting for it, but I'd bet the companies behind the holograms are working out how to have their "entertainers" be dynamic - do unique things on stage, interact with fans, interact with other virtual "entertainers", and much more.

    We'll cross the Uncanny Valley here pretty quick.

    Paycheck this or that to me personally it doesn’t matter Im a fan of MUSIC. I’d jump at the chance to play bass to those ICONS. Money comes and goes music lasts forever.

    One effect this will have on modern music is people setting up legal protections as much as possible to prevent this from happening, or ensure it will happen, after their death.

    I think it's ghoulish, super lame, but harmless.

    I also suspect that many people have a negative reaction, and the "backlash" will make LIVE music more appreciated. So perhaps it's a good thing in the end.

  13. Question: How do these things work? Is there glass that is projected on?

    A side of me thinks that it’s essentially flogging a corpse to extract cash. But there must be a demand for it, so some people must like it. And it’s keeping ancillary folks like the OP employed.

  15. How about something goofier. Instead of holograms, how about something like The Hall of Presidents.

    It's like Christmas with so many @Bodeanly posts to enjoy.

    As for holograms, I thought Tupak's was pretty persuasive in the context of performance.
    Adding a live singer for a duet bridges the gap between live and Memorex, as well

    Not interested. Big Dio fan and was a sad day when he passed away, but I don't think it would do him justice. I think a tribute band would be much better.
