An ‘immersive listening experience’ of The Beatles‘ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album has come to Liverpool in time for Christmas.
Until January 9th next year, the Tate Liverpool and National Museums Liverpool are presenting their collaboration with Apple Corps Ltd – the remixed version of Sgt. Pepper’s in Dolby Atmos which is said to give the impression of the Fab Four ‘performing live in the space’. Free to enter, it’s being held at the Royal Albert Dock in Liverpool.
“We’re excited to be working with National Museums Liverpool to bring this unique listening experience to the city,” says Helen Legg, director of Tate Liverpool. “At the time they made Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, The Beatles were at the epicentre of pop and performance art of 60s London which strongly influenced this tremendous record.”
“Listening to this special mix is like hearing something familiar for the first time. It sounds so fresh, you can hear every element which just underscores how wildly inventive it was.”
