Watch Shama Rahman’s 360 video of aquatic song ‘Liquid Blue’

Shama Rah­man, sitar play­er, sci­en­tist and actor, has released a spe­cial 360-degree video of a per­for­mance of her ocean­ic song, ‘Liq­uid Blue’.

‘Liq­uid Blue’ is tak­en from Rahman’s forth­com­ing album, Truth BeTold, which includes record­ings of dif­fer­ent water forms, and is described as “a con­tin­u­ous flow of music and spo­ken word inter­ludes, backed by sitar soundscapes”.

Rah­man per­formed the whole album at last year’s Alche­my fes­ti­val at the South­bank Cen­tre in Lon­don. The 360-degree video footage was cap­tured by Room One.

The sitar play­er recent­ly returned from a his­toric expe­di­tion to Antarc­ti­ca with the Antarc­tic Bien­nale – we spoke to Rah­man about her expe­ri­ences in Antarc­ti­ca and what peo­ple can expect from her album here.

You can watch the 360 footage below, via Google Chrome or using Google Card­board on Android. (Note: 360 func­tions do not cur­rent­ly work in oth­er browsers or on non-Android devices.)
