Shibuya Shibuya, we face a shining future

Underworld took centre stage at the tomato 25th Anniversary exhibition “O” at Parco Shibuya, Tokyo.

Parco presented the 25th anniversary exhibition of globally acclaimed design collective tomato. The exhibition “O” occupied Shibuya Parco from March 12th – 3rd April 2016 and with an exclusive appearance of Underworld as the “O” exhibition’s exclusive opening event.

Underworld’s Rick Smith and Karl Hyde, two of tomato’s original founder members, presented a unique once in a lifetime high-quality-live-to-headphone performance to 200 lucky people wearing Bowers & Wilkins P5 headphones in Shibuya on the evening of March 12th.

The performance was broadcast live via Shibuyanoradio (87.6 FM), taking the show to the streets of Shibuya and premiering new material from their then forthcoming album “Barbara Barbara, we face a shining future”.

In a world-first and in partnership with Galaxy and Bowers & Wilkins, Underworld built on their reputation for technical innovation, streaming the show as a live 360-degree visual experience to viewers in a satellite venue using Galaxy Gear VR (powered by Oculus).

In addition, they also contributed to the “O” exhibition with an art installation featuring the painting work of Karl Hyde and audio-scape by Rick Smith at Gallery X.
