Jeff Wayne 'always wondered what it would be like to step back in time'
Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of The War of The Worlds has had an extraordinary life since its release in 1978, including records, arena tours and a West End production. Working in partnership with Layered Reality, the award-winning double album has now been adapted into a completely immersive experience. Read on to hear what Jeff has to say about its creation:
"Working with Layered Reality to turn my Musical Version into an Immersive Experience has creatively been one of the most unique and enjoyable collaborations within my career.
The challenge of starting with my original score and script, then adding new musical content, remixes and mash ups plus new storylines all coming together with two very passionate teams - those of Layered Reality and my own studio team and remain friends and proud of the end result, has been very special indeed.
I've always wondered what it would be like to step back in time to the world of H.G. Wells and his dark Victorian tale and survive the Martians. Well, now I know!"
