Acclaimed producer and songwriter Porter Robinson has shared the music video for his latest track, Mirror. Mirror is the third track to be released from Robinson’s forthcoming full length, ‘Nurture.’
In the video, Robinson uses Live2D face-tracking technology to map his own facial movements onto the hand drawn avatar, capturing his own live expressions and performance of the song. The hand drawn avatar is available as an AR filter today—try it here and watch Robinson’s demo here—following the last filter for Something Comforting, which racked up more than 1 million impressions.
Mirror, which Billboard called “a dance track with a beating heart and grandiose ambitions,” follows the DJ NOT PORTER ROBINSON and Anamanaguchi remixes of Get Your Wish. Mirror marks the third offering from ‘Nurture,’ following Something Comforting, which finds Robinson in a moment of “melancholic introspection” swaying “between heavily layered production and subdued instrumentation” according to UPROXX, and the original version of Get Your Wish, praised by The FADER as “a skittish glimmer of a track that climbs its way up to total euphoria.”
In May, Robinson put on the Secret Sky streaming festival, marking his first performance of 2020. The 14-hour livestream event, which Robinson created as a way to introduce his vast audience to new artists and give his favorite musicians a platform to perform, featured sets by G Jones, Jai Wolf, Kizuna AI, Madeon, San Holo, A. G. Cook, Anamanaguchi and several others. The livestream was broadcast via a digital auditorium built with state-of-the-art technology and attracted more than 4 million viewers, with the YouTube chat peaking at 8,813 chats per second during Robinson’s performance of the previously unheard Look at the Sky.
