Instagram series inspired by Blackstar announced

A 16-part series exploring the music on David Bowie’s final album, Blackstar, will premiere on Instagram on Thursday, February 25.

Each episode of Unbound will be 15-seconds long and, in the words of its creators, will be “a journey of evocative images inspired by the moods suggested in the Blackstar album's music, lyrics and artwork.” The InstaMiniSeries “is propelled by a focus on this visual interpretation of the album as opposed to a linear narrative.”

Bowie was reportedly involved in the series’ development from the beginning, letting programme-makers Carolynn Cecilia and Nikki Borges listen to Blackstar prior to release and providing ideas.

Lawrence Peryer, producer of Unbound, concludes: “In light of recent events, this project has taken on new significance for all of us – cast and crew.

“We are very happy to be bringing a new creative work to David’s fans worldwide at a time when a focus on his music and art is much-needed.”

New episodes will be uploaded on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. A trailer is available for viewing at Instagram users can view the series by following the account @instaminiseries.
