Narrative-Altering Music Videos

This Adjustable Music Video Lets Audiences Interact More Fully

— March 31, 2016 — Pop Culture
This adjustable music video allows audiences to interact by changing the narrative and even the mix of the song. While many artists and musicians are prolific posthumously, Jeff Buckley (who only released one album and passed away in 1997) is in a league of his own.

Created by NYC-based digital agency Interlude, the interactive music video allows you to click on a variety of animated panes, choosing the story that is displayed. The adjustable music video can be altered in well over a trillion ways. Depending on the lyrics, you can choose what the characters do and pick your sadness level as you go. The song also starts off as just Jeff Buckley's voice and an electric guitar, but based on the storyline, piano, full orchestra and choir can also be introduced.
