Epic Games and Radiohead Unveil Trailer for "KID A MNESIA EXHIBITION"Available for free on the PS5, PC and Mac this November.
Epic Games Publishing and Radiohead have officially dropped the trailer for their upcoming “KID A MNESIA EXHIBITION” project, which celebrates 21 years of the band’s influential Kid A and Amnesiac albums.
The exhibition is billed as “an upside-down digital/analogue universe” that’s created from Thom Yorke and Stanley Donwood’s original artwork and Nigel Godrich’s sound design. All the pieces set to be featured are taken from the fourth and fifth Radiohead albums, but are rebuilt from the original elements — making the exhibit a “mutant re-engineering” of the the KID A MNESIA triple album.
“KID A MNESIA EXHIBITION” was initially conceived as a physical installation that debuts in London and appears in areas like New York, Tokyo and Paris, but zoning laws, physics and the pandemic transformed the exhibit into an event beyond the physical world. Yorke, Donwood and Godrich ended up linking with a number of creatives, including video/computer artist and creative director Sean Evans, theatre set designer Christine Jones, interactive producer Matthew Davis, his studio [namethemachine] and game developers Arbitrarily Good Productions in order to “enhance and emphasize the inseparable nature of these sounds and visions.”
Watch the full trailer above. Epic Games and Radiohead’s “KID A MNESIA EXHIBITION” will be available as a free download for PlayStation 5, PC and Mac on November 18.
