Así se hizo el Tomorrowland Virtual 2020

0

El Tomorrowland ha marcado un antes y un después en las vidas de millones de seguidores de la música electrónica alrededor del mundo. Y es que si hay algo que la organización ha demostrado es que no hay adversidad que elimine de sus calendarios esta importante cita.

Este año, la pandemia obligó al festival a conectar con sus seguidores a través de una pantalla. Pero no de la manera que todos imaginamos. La organización consiguió que todos, desde nuestros hogares, llegásemos hasta allí y adentrarnos en un mundo completamente ajeno a nuestra realidad. Un mundo en el que la música de nuestros DJs favoritos guiaba nuestros movimientos.

Pero, ¿cómo consiguieron recrear los escenarios de este extravagante festival a través de la pantalla? ¿Cómo consiguieron que las luces, los cambios de plano y cada uno de los movimientos de los protagonistas convirtiesen las imágenes en una experiencia de lo más realista? Llega Never Stop The Music, el documental que Tomorrowland ha compartido con sus seguidores para explicar la creación de uno de sus mayores retos.

Cromas enormes, escenarios sin rematar, cámaras 4K Ultra HD y una post-producción casi inimaginable son algunos de los elementos que explican el éxito de esta esperada velada. Claro que si esto lo acompañas de los DJs con más renombre del panorama, la experiencia es, literalmente, irrepetible.

Lo que los amantes de la electrónica vivieron durante el 25 y 26 de julio fue un auténtico espectáculo. David Guetta, Martin Garrix, Steve Aoki, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike y Amelie Lens fueron algunos de los que no faltaron a su cita. Una cita que acabó convirtiéndose en el rayo de luz de millones de personas alrededor del mundo que esperaban la llegada de estos días para experimentar un auténtico subidón de adrenalina.

Y tú, ¿te imaginabas todo lo que su creación escondía?

Everything We Know About Ariana Grande’s ‘Positions’ Album

0

Get in position, Arianators, because Ariana Grande is just days away from the release of her upcoming sixth album, Positions!

After weeks of teasing, fans will soon have their hands on the pop star’s first album in more than a year and a half — and her first big release since K Bye for Now (SWT Live) after wrapping her massive Sweetener World Tour in Dec. 2019.

«This project is my favorite for many reasons and i really can’t wait for it to be yours. thank u for your love and excitement, it means the world to me,» she tweeted on Saturday (Oct. 24) while sharing the album’s 13-song track listing in the lead-up to its release.

The album’s lead single

Ahead of the long-awaited full-length’s release, Grande surprised the world with lead single (and title track) «Positions,» a smitten love song about, ahem, her flexibility in making a new relationship work. Hours later, she also dropped the track’s White House-set music video, which reimagines what life would be like with Ariana as commander in chief and features cameos by the likes of Tayla Parx, Victoria Monet, Nija Charles and the pop star’s beloved mother, Joan Grande.

The release date

Ariana isn’t wasting any time! Just one week after unleashing the innuendo-laden title track and its presidential music video on the world, the superstar is set to drop Positions on Friday, (Oct. 30). The album will be the pop star’s first full-length studio set since 2019’s Thank U, Next. Since then, she’s released a live album of her 2019 Sweetener World Tour, K Bye For Now (SWT Live), as well as high-profile collaborations with Justin Bieber («Stuck With U»), Lady Gaga («Rain On Me») and more.

The collaborators

Ari is no stranger to teaming up with her other artists, though she hasn’t included any guest features on an album since 2018’s Sweetener, where the likes of Nicki Minaj, Missy Elliott and Pharrell Williams all made appearances.

Unveiling the Positions track list on Oct. 24, the big-voiced pop star revealed she’ll be teaming up with both Doja Cat («Motive») and Ty Dolla $ign («Safety Net») among the LP’s 13 tracks, as well as collaborating once again with The Weeknd («Off the Table») for their second duet following Dangerous Woman-era smash single «Love Me Harder.»

The three (slightly) different album covers

Arianators dying to get their hands on a physical copy of the new album will three separate covers to choose from, with each featuring glam ’60s-inspired portraits of the pop star. «I’ve been so excited to show u these !!! three (slightly) different versions of the physical albums are now available to preorder on my website,» Ari wrote on Oct. 26 to share a look at the cover art for the CD versions of Positions.

In each close-up, she’s photographed from the left, alternately glancing to the right, gazing over her shoulder and framing her face with her hands. No word yet on which visual will make the cut as the album’s digital — or official — cover art.
