Tila literal na umabot hanggang outer space ang effort na ibinigay ng K-pop boy group na SEVENTEEN makaraang mag-film ito ng microphone sa space, sa tulong ng aerospace company na Sent Into Space, para sa music video ng kanilang bagong kanta na “God of Music.”
Ayon sa ulat ng Sent Into Space, ini-reveal nito na nag-launch sila ng microphone sa outer space ilang linggo lamang bago ilabas ang naturang music video.
“We launched a microphone into space for K-pop band SEVENTEEN’s new music video, ‘음악의 신’ (God of Music). Working with Korean production company SL8, we completed the launch just weeks ahead of the music video’s release,” saad nito sa kanilang ulat.
“Our in-house team of engineers designed and built the craft in just three days, to get it ready in time to launch and retrieve the footage of the microphone’s journey in time for the music video’s release,” pagpapatuloy pa nito.
Upang maging posible ang kanilang literal na “out-of-this-world” idea ay gumamit umano sila ng custom-designed spacecraft.
“Our engineering team began designing a custom spacecraft to take the microphone into space. It was essential for us to attach the microphone to our craft in a way that made for an attractive shot while also being safe and secure,” kwento pa nila sa kanilang ulat.
Ayon pa sa kanila, tumagal ng halos 2 hours ang naturang microphone sa ere.
“When launch day arrived, the spacecraft was attached to a high altitude balloon filled with lighter-than-air hydrogen gas, and launched from one of our specialist launch sites in Derbyshire, UK. The microphone ascended to over 113,000 feet before it began its ascent back to Earth. It was in the air for over 2 hours!” dagdag pa nila.
Matatandaan ini-release ng SEVENTEEN ang kanilang 11th Mini Album na “Seventeenth Heaven,” nitong October 23, kung saan ang title track nito ay ang “God of Music.”
Binubuo ng eight tracks ang naturang album: ang “SOS (Prod. Marshmello,” “God of Music,” “Diamond Days,” “Back 2 Back,” “Monster,” “Yawn,” “Headliner,” at ang instrumental version ng “God of Music.”
Kaugnay naman nito, nakatakdang mag-concert ang SEVENTEEN sa Pilipinas sa darating na January 13, 2024, sa Philippine Sports Stadium, bilang parte ng kanilang “Follow” tour.
