No doubt many of you out there have already been considering buying the vinyl album for John Williams’ work on Star Wars: The Force Awakens. If you’re still contemplating such a purchase, but need a push in the right direction, Disney have just released a video that will immediately help to sway your decision. That’s because it reveals that when you play the Star Wars: The Force Awakens vinyl a hologram of the Millennium Falcon suddenly emerges. You can check this out in all of its glory below.
What a beautiful merging of the future and the past. It’s just a shame that the amount of people who actually own a vinyl player has drastically dropped since Star Wars: A New Hope was released back in 1977, but let’s not focus on the negative. Instead, let’s focus on just how cool you’ll look when you put on John Williams’ epic score for Star Wars: The Force Awakens and then a hologram of the Millennium Falcon appears.
Obviously this type of technical innovation is what we’re accustomed to seeing from the Star Wars universe. Paulo Da Costa, the Director of Marketing & Product Management over at Lucasfilm, admitted that the idea originated as they were looking for a vinyl product that would be a great experience for fans. After several discussions, they landed on creating holograms for the vinyl, which Tristan Duke, an artist and holographer, managed by carving grooves into the vinyl that recorded light.
Tristan Duke founded Infinity Light Science back in 2008, which is a research laboratory that focuses on laser holography, hand-drawn holography, and several other technical innovations in this field. With the release of John Williams’ Star Wars: The Force Awakens soundtrack they found the perfect reason to incorporate his work into the universe, and you have to admit that it all looks rather spiffing.
Those of you dying to add it your record collection will be able to do so when the Star Wars: The Force Awakens 2-LP hologram soundtrack is released on June 17, 2016.
