“3 Dreams of Black” takes you on a journey through three dream worlds constructed through a combination of rich 2D drawings and animations interwoven with interactive 3D sequences. Throughout various points in these dream worlds, you can grab your mouse and guide the protagonist’s point of view through the experience. This music experience also includes a 3D model creator that allows you to create your own relics and contribute to the shared collective dream. “3 Dreams of Black” is written and directed by Chris Milk, and developed with a few folks here at Google.

This WebGL interactive music experience is a wholly immersive journey, inspired by Goulding’s single Lights at once enriching the experience of the song and offering up a stunning visual interpretation. A techno-celestial light show allows viewers to soar through the music, cutting their way through the virtual environment with their mouse as their guide. Additional functionality includes the ability to speed up the experience with the click of one’s mouse, as well as real-time Twitter comments about Lights integrated into the visuals. The real-time Tweets are powered by Echo’s powerful StreamServer platform. The platform allowed the design team to quickly collect, store and serve the live data at the massive scale that’s expected with very little engineering effort.

Swedish pop star Robyn has released this interactive 3D video for the song “Don’t fucking tell me what to do” in 2010. The video is written entirely in code, and feeds in content from fans via Twitter. The beginning of the video features words from the song, in which Robyn sings about the various vices that are killing her. In the second half of the song, the website feeds in tweets from fans stating the things that are killing them, with their name credited at the bottom of the webpage.

The latest interactive video for Japanese band Sour reflects two big trends from this year: multiple pop-up windows and music videos that pull in the user’s personal data
Last year, Sour scored a big hit with their Hibi No Niero video which used fans’ webcam footage to charming effect. The new video, for track Mirror, echoes Arcade Fire’s The Wilderness Downtown in that it takes the user’s personal details (in this case Facebook, Webcam and Twitter) in order to create a personalised, multi-window experience.
Go to the site and you are asked to input your log-in details to Facebook, webcam and Twitter.
