Hologram Of Brit Legend To Be Unveiled
The British company Musion who produced the infamous Tupac illusion at Coachella this year are tight lipped about the new creation. It will be unveiled in London as part of the "Best Of Britannia" event that will take place each night from October 5-7. Revered songwriter Guy Chambers said of the event (via NME): "British music talent is the best in the world because we take more risks, we embrace new genres, we aren't scared to be original and we have the confidence of an incredible pop heritage, I look forward to showcasing the best of British talent at BOB 2012". Following the Tupac performance last year, rumors of similar holograms for Amy Winehouse, Freddy Mercury, Elvis, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison and Kurt Cobain were reported. However, many music fans (including many UG readers) criticised the new technology. Even the Tupac creator James Rock admitted that the so-called holograms could never replace a real performance. "I don't think we'll ever replace going and seeing a live performance", said Rock. "But don't forget that the world's a very big place. I think this will end up with something like this 'Do you go to the theatre or do you go to the cinema?'" It's an interesting discussion point, and we want to hear what you think. Will culture find a place for the new hologram technology? Who might the hologram turn out to be? Let us know what you think in the comments.
