The Melody of Dust

The Melody of Dust

A door to an abandoned temple. A whispering column of wind. Are objects really singing as they move through the air, or is it just your weary, fatigued mind manifesting a melody from idle pieces of luxury littered around your bedroom? From Viacom NEXT and musician Hot Sugar comes a Virtual Reality experience where you move between worlds to layer melodies in a hungry tornado; seeking in part, to unlock a song that has been eluding you your whole life.
