Jeff Buckley‘s meditative cover of Bob Dylan‘s “Just Like a Woman” is among the highlights from the late singer-songwriter’s recent posthumous compilation LP, You and I. A pair of¬†design studios, Interlude and Blind, have teamed to create an interactive, animated clip for the song that allows fans to explore the emotional trajectory of a love story.
The video, styled like a Choose Your Own Adventure book, lets viewers change the narrative by clicking on 73 different story cells. According to the video creators, this results in roughly 1 sexdecillion (one with 51 zeroes after it) versions of the same clip. The selections also develop the music: While the track begins with Buckley’s voice and a guitar, the arrangement can swell to¬†include choir and orchestra, resulting in 16,000 combinations,¬†Mashable reports.
“The goal of this video is for both existing and new fans to enjoy many ways of experiencing the¬†music, and for each individual audience member to return over and over to be involved with the¬†emotion differently each time,” Yoni Block, Interlude CEO and co-founder, said.
You and I features 10 songs Buckley recorded for Columbia Records at producer Steve Addabbo’s Shelter Island Sound studio in February 1993, in an attempt to carve out a distinct musical direction. The album features eight covers ‚Äď including the Smiths’ “I Know It’s Over,”¬†Sly & the Family Stone and Led Zeppelin ‚Äď along with two originals, “Grace” and “Dream of You and I.”
