John Lennon: The Bermuda Tapes is an interactive Album App that tells the story of John Lennon’s life changing journey, sailing through a mid- Atlantic storm to Bermuda in June 1980.
The Bermuda Tapes is comprised of six chapters of interactive and immersive storytelling and is narrated by John Lennon, Yoko Ono, The B52s, the ship’s captain and the crew among others. Through the screen of an iPad or iPhone you are able to interact with the narrative, moving, swiping and tilting, to unfold and bring the story to life.
The immersive storytelling experience allows users to explore the very intimate artistic and collaborative process Lennon had with Yoko Ono, working with early recordings of songs and finally leading to the release of his final album, Double Fantasy: A Heart Play.
