Over the past month, I’ve written a couple of quick pieces on Arcade Fire through the release cycle for their new double album Reflektor, not only as a fan of their music, but also, as an experience designer who looks forward to and enjoys how they use interactive principles and multimedia to engage and delight listeners. Today, I am happy to share how-to listen to the Hidden Track/Easter Egg ‘Awful Sound’ hinted at on Twitter, but I found whilst listening to the new album on a DVD player but did not find on CD or Digital.
If you are not familiar with Arcade Fire, or, how they have employed interactive engagement over the course of their musical journey, hit the links below for the most exhaustive list of interactive and experiential engagements I have been able to compile to date. Happy listening!
