AUSTRA GET INVOLVED IN BECK'S GREEN BOX ART PROJECT
Austra | 04/08/11
Taking inspiration from some of the classic old school, 16bit Nintendo video games and their soundtracks, Austra have created a beautiful yet jarring ambient underwater soundtrack to accompany their otherworldly Green Box in Hoxton Square, London. The glorious underwater footage that accompanies Austra’s otherworldly commission was shot by the Austra crew in Sardinia and completes the cosmic deep sea vision that is the juxtaposition between different sonic plains, two surreal visions that beautifully interconnect through the eyes and ears of Austra.
On till the 21st August, 2011 at Hoxton Square, all you have to do is download the Beck's Key App from HERE and hold your phone up to the Green Box to see Austra's artwork and hear a new piece from the band.
Watch the exclusive interview film with Austra below, featuring the band live in London, and hear Katie explain her vision for Austra's Green Box where two juxtaposing worlds are brought together.
