SoundWorks Collection: OK GO “This Too Shall Pass”
The Los Angeles quartet known as OK GO has gone from being a rare young light on a major label to arguably the world’s most bleeding edge independent outfit. The viral music video for the recorded version of “This Too Shall Pass” off of the album “Of the Blue Colour of the Sky” was recently remixed in Dolby 5.1 Surround as part of an upcoming CES announcement from Dolby. SoundWorks Collection talks with band members Tim Nordwind and Damian Kulash about their recent collaboration with John Loose, Sr. Manager, Production of Dolby and album producer Dave Fridmann.
About the Music Video:
The video was filmed in a two story warehouse, in the Echo Park neighborhood of Los Angeles, CA. The “machine” was designed and built by the band, along with members of Syyn Labs over the course of several months.
Directed by James Frost, OK Go and Syyn Labs. Produced by Shirley Moyers. There is also an in-depth behind-the-scenes look at the warehouse setup here and a great making of video that you should check out.
