Gordi premieres 3D live album experience ‘Buried City’

Consisting of live performances filmed with a 360-degree camera

Folktronica artist Gordi has premiered her new immersive 3D live album experience titled Buried City.

Announced earlier this month, the album consists of “stripped back versions of new and old songs” that Gordi – real name Sophie Payten – performed in Melbourne’s Le Bon Ton.

Viewers can access Buried City through a purpose-built website. To gain access, fans must sign up to receive a password which takes them into the 3D-experience.


Each Buried City performance was filmed with a 360-degree camera and was stitched together by virtual reality director Michael Beets. Viewers are allowed to move around and explore the virtual space with their mouse and keyboard.

“I can’t see your face and I can’t play these songs for you,” Payten said in the trailer.

“So, I want you to come into this space, wander through the rooms and touch the things that you see. And hopefully you’ll see me. Take a walk through this buried city.”

Gordi’s latest release was her ‘Extraordinary Life’ remix EP, off the back of her sophomore album, ‘Our Two Skins’, which dropped earlier in June.


She has just completed a string of dates in New South Wales in support of her album release, and will play three more dates early next year to conclude the tour.

Gordi’s 2021 tour dates:

Friday 5 – Brisbane, The Triffid (early and late show)
Saturday 6 – Byron Bay, Byron Theatre
Saturday 20 – Hobart, Altar
