The experience has somewhat hypnotic eye-catching visuals from the folks at Evovle Studios.
A statement from Apple’s marketing material said “Pearl Jam have released their highly anticipated and long waited new album ‘Gigaton.’ Their 11th album and first in nearly 7 years is already receiving mass critical acclaim as their greatest and most adventurous work to date. This immersive visual album pairs the bands inspired visuals and footage, produced by the award-winning Evolve Studios, to create unparalleled 360 experience that enhances Gigaton’s massive scope. Mixed in the revolutionary Dolby Atmos immersive immersive audio format and provided together wit Dolby Vision high dynamic range video, this visual album experience is the first of its kind on Apple TV. With this immersive audio experience, Pearl Jam fans will have a unique opportunity to hear the album in a completely different way.”
The producer to Gigaton Josh Evans says “I’m excited for fans to be able to immerse themselves in the sound and to hear the depth and layers of these songs and performances, It’s truly a unique way to experience this album.”
The album debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 Album Charts after its release on 27th March. The album has reached in the Top 10 rock singles for “Dance of the Clairvoyants”, “Superblood Wolfmoon” and “Quick Escape”.
For fans who fan to see the fully immersive Gigaton experience, they will need to have an Apple TV 4k that’s paired with a Dolby-Vision supported 4K HDR TV and a Dolby Atmos-compatible sound system.
The 3D surround effects are amazing, if anyone has ever experienced the Doly Atmos, it makes objects you see on the screen sonically shift from one side of the room to the other. Put this together with the voice of Eddie Vedder and the sonic sounds of Pearl Jam and this would be a pearler!
