Billboard Magazine recently featured Gyroskope in an article, Live, From The Living Room, focusing on online video platforms complimenting live concerts like never before.
Billboard’s Glenn Peoples writes, “Music fans will undoubtedly continue to attend concerts, but online performances could become common events because they require so little investment from consumers. There is no travel time to the venue, no parking fees, no babysitter arrangements and no hassle getting home late. People can watch from the comfort of their homes or offices on a desktop, laptop, tablet or mobile phone. And watching from anywhere is a blessing for a fan who lives in a rarely visited, tertiary touring market.”
Gyroskope Producer, Bonnie “Prince” Billy, is taking this idea to heart. With hundreds of thousands of fans scattered around the world, Bonnie “Prince” Billy recorded a 2011 concert in Chicago’s Millennium Park in high definition audio and video, then posted the concert to Gyroskope.com for fans to enjoy. Fans who could not attend the concert, as well as those who were there in the crowd but want to re-live it have purchased the video and watched from the comforts of their own home.
