Hallelujah is a revolutionary virtual reality music performance that reimagines Leonard Cohen’s most well-known song. The experience is centered around a unique 5-part a cappella arrangement, which is composed and performed in-the-round (around the viewer).
It is the world's first VR music experience captured with Lytro Immerge light-field camera technology, which allows the viewer to physically move around the virtual world, providing an uncompromising sense of presence with six degrees of freedom.
Hallelujah premiered at Tribeca Film Festival in April 2017, followed by the International premiere at Festival dé Cannes, Marche Du Film in May 2017.
Hallelujah is a A Within Original, created in partnership with Lytro. It is set to release in 2017.
