Electronic artist Deadmau5 released a new music video for their new single, created entirely by fans of Basic games.
In collaboration with Manticore Games, Deadmau5the highly anticipated new music video for “When The Summer Dies” with the musician, singer and songwriter, Lights is out.
Deadmau5, aka Joel Zimmerman, asked fans to build dystopian worlds on Heart, the platform for interactive experiences created by users, during the Dystopian Worlds Collab Jam which began in July. Once the worlds were created, the final clip was then put together into the video for “When The Summer Dies”.
“I’ve been experimenting with the confluence of music and technology for a long time, and now with games I’m able to take it to a whole new level,” Zimmerman said. “Typically, it takes months and hundreds of thousands, if not millions of dollars to make a music video. In this case, we were able to create a video with stunning 3D worlds in just a few months by outsourcing the creation to the Heart community and Deadmau5 Fans.
