AC Interview – Laura Rizzotto on Creating Holographic Performance

As an award winner singer and musician, Laura Rizzotto has performed on numerous stages — including the inside of a 16oz glass of beer.

What is unique and what stays the same? We sit down with professional musician and Eurovision winner Laura Rizzotto to explore the artist’s perspective of 3D performance capture.
