Go ‘Behind The Blade’ In the Glitch Mob’s New Documentary
Anyone who has seen The Glitch Mob live can attest to the one-of-a-kind experience their live shows provide. From the trio's energy to their hard-hitting sounds, they have established themselves as one of the hottest groups in the game. Their live shows also come with an incredible visual element, thanks to their intricate stage setup, which is known as "the Blade."
Now, the trio has invited their fans to a behind-the-scenes look at the making of "the Blade." Created by Martin Phillips, who was responsible for Daft Punk's legendary pyramid setup from Alive 2007, it fuses dystopian futuristic design with state-of-the-art custom control software to create a digital live performance system that is as functional and it is mesmerizing, and this documentary, which has been almost two years in the making, will finally shed some light on how it all works and how the project came to fruition. Watch the documentary above.
