Dolby Presents Dolby Atmos Music and J Balvin, Exploring How Colors and Culture Define His Music

J Balvin shares how he transcends barriers through music and pulls in a global audience with his vision of music as a color palette for all to feel SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 29, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today, Dolby Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE: DLB), a leader in immersive entertainment experiences, is unveiling the second commercial of its first Dolby Atmos Music campaign featuring the LATIN GRAMMY award-winning and global chart-topping Colombian reggaeton artist, J Balvin.

The campaign is based on the insight that people want to feel a deeper connection with their favorite artists through music1, the kind a Dolby Atmos Music experience can authentically deliver.

We continue our Dolby Atmos Music journey with J Balvin exploring how colors and culture define his iconic musical style, said Todd Pendleton, Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, Dolby Laboratories. We share J's mission to bring his music to the world for everyone to feel.

The :90 second film goes deep into J Balvin's creative process and his first experience with Dolby Atmos Music. Spotlighting his recently released single Blanco, J Balvin discusses his perspective of music as a color palette, the impact of growing up in Colombia and moving to New York to chase his dreams, and how these influences define his distinct sound. This exclusive portrait film from Dolby presents his inner monologue of transcending barriers through music, pulling the audience closer in so they can feel the colors as he does.

I see music as colors. With this new album that were making, we really want people to feel the colors, said J Balvin. Dolby Atmos lets you feel the layers of music; you can feel the layers of the gradients in the colors. I've never heard music like this. I love it.

The piece follows Sunday's debut of a two-minute film featuring Lizzo, which explored the emotion behind music and the beauty of a Dolby Atmos experience.

In the weeks to come, Dolby will give people an intimate look into the creative minds of other top artists through a series that showcases their personal ethos, stories, and close relationship with fans. Dolby joined forces with these trailblazers in music because they inspire others by living unapologetically, and their art is leading culture. The campaign features real stories from each artist and highlights their latest singles.

The films were directed by the award-winning Toronto based director Karena Evans at m ss ng p eces. She is one of entertainment's most sought-after talents and is known for her cinematic, authentic, and narrative-focused directorial style. Karena is behind Drake's 2018 music video God's Plan, and is revered for telling diverse, inclusive stories about the human condition.

The genesis of this campaign is inspired by Dolby's mission itself - a pure transmission of artist intention, said Karena Evans. We decided to approach this campaign unconventionally through interior monologues to explore the purity of thought and creativity. At its core, this is what Dolby Atmos is.

What is Dolby Atmos Music

Imagine if there were a way to connect with music at its fullest capacity and creative potential - not the way most people hear music today, but a version that pulls you into a song to reveal what was lost with traditional recordings. Dolby Atmos does just that. Whether it's a complex harmony of instruments placed around a listener, the unleashing of a legendary guitar solo, a massive bass drop that washes over you, or the subtle breath a singer takes, Dolby Atmos gives music more space and the freedom to unleash every detail and emotion as the artist intended.

How to experience Dolby Atmos Music

Dolby is working closely with artists, record labels, streaming services, and consumer electronics manufacturers to make Dolby Atmos Music experiences widely accessible. Two of the world's largest record labels - Universal Music Group and Warner Music Group - have announced plans to release tracks in Dolby Atmos from some of the biggest names in music. You can enjoy music in Dolby Atmos via Amazon Music HD on Echo Studio, at your local Dolby Cinema or in your home through movies released in Dolby Atmos, on special released albums available on Blu-ray, or at a number of night clubs around the world where electronic musicians are performing live in Dolby Atmos.
