Listen + Clios: Another One

Call Khaled because we got another one. We’re thrilled to share that Listen has nabbed a Bronze Clio Entertainment Award for our original game created with Microsoft and M83, Meet Me At Go!

The game draws on vintage ’80s arcade styling, and is optimized for touch screens (like the Microsoft Surface). We were inspired by M83 frontman Anthony Gonzalez’s love of gaming to create this retro race game, which was released in place of a music video alongside an 8-bit remix (which we also composed) for his hit song, “Go!.” Play the game here, or read more about the collaboration here.

Listen Snags 2 Clios

We’re proud to announce that last night at Lincoln Center, Listen took home the two Music Clio Awards we were shortlisted for last month. For our work with Microsoft and Childish Gambino (aka Donald Glover), we snagged the Gold in Partnerships/Collaborations and the Silver in VR.

Part of the Microsoft Music x Technology program, our collaboration included an immersive live experience and VR component around Gambino’s 2016 release, Awaken, My Love!. Working with streamlined Microsoft tech, including Kinect and Azure, we developed PHAROS, a physical and digital experience that fans worldwide could access.

Learn more about PHAROS, or see how the Music x Tech program empowers artists and fans alike. And we’ll see you on stage again next year…

Listen Shortlisted for 2 Clio Music Awards

Get the tux out of storage and take your gown to the dry cleaner: Listen has been shortlisted for 2 Clio Music Awards! Both nominations are for our work with Microsoft and Childish Gambino, where we brought artist and brand together to collaborate on an incredible VR album release and concert experience, PHAROS.

This was one of our most ambitious projects to date in the Microsoft Music x Technology program, and we’re thrilled to see our work recognized. Read more about PHAROS and the Music x Tech program, and root for us at the Clios on 9/27 in the Partnerships & Collaborations and Digital/Media Music Marketing categories.
