In a collaboration with Disney Music Group, Philips Lighting launched LightVibes in the U.S. at the Downtown Independent Theater in Los Angeles on February 16. An audience of music and film industry professionals and artists experienced the technology along with music video footage from the Star Wars Headspace album, an inspired-by compilation by some of the top and emerging electronic music artists, featuring tracks that integrate sound effects and dialogue from the Star Wars films. The Rick Rubin-produced album includes original tracks by Kascade, TroyBoi, GTA, Flying Lotus and A-Trak, among others. Star Wars Headspace was released digitally on February 19, and became available on CD on March 18.
