David Bowie App Set to Launch Jan. 8

Oscar-winning actor Gary Oldman will be the voice of the new APP, David Bowie Is, set to launch Jan. 8, which would have been Bowie’s 72nd birthday.

This brings the amazing David Bowie Is exhibition to a wider audience,” says Oldman of the app. “It’s great that his fans get to experience it. It was a privilege to be involved.”

As previously reported, the APP is the digital version of the museum exhibition, which was as a series of audio-visual areas where the viewer experienced aspects of and artifacts from various parts of Bowie’s life and career. The displays in the app– available for Apple and Android –will feature high-res 3D scans of the memorabilia — including many items not featured in the original exhibit — enhanced by music and Oldman’s narration.

The David Bowie Is AR mobile app will be priced at $7.99. A virtual-reality (VR) version of the app will be released at a later date. Visit DavidBowieIsReal.com for more info.
