Radiohead have announced that they’ve teamed up with Epic Games to deliver a new “virtual exhibition” called KID A MNESIA EXHIBITION.

Described as “an upside-down digital/analogue universe”, it’s been created from original artwork by Thom Yorke and Stanley Donwood and sound design by Nigel Godrich to commemorate 21 years of Radiohead’s Kid A and Amnesiac albums.

It follows a teaser trailer for the exhibition that was shared by Playstation back in September, which featured Kid A track Everything In Its Right Place, and a collection of Radiohead logos etched on a virtual wall.

‘KID A MNESIA EXHIBITION’ was originally conceived as a physical installation, but after a number of obstacles – including the coronavirus pandemic – thwarted plans, it has now been moved beyond the physical world.

Yorke and Donwood, along with Kid A and Amnesiac producer Godrich, have joined forces with video/computer artist and creative director Sean Evans, theatre set designer Christine Jones, interactive producer Matthew Davis, his studio [namethemachine], and game developers Arbitrarily Good Productions to reimagine ‘KID A MNESIA EXHIBITION’ in a “non-corporeal form that would enhance and emphasise the inseparable nature of these sounds and visions”. Epic Games Publishing have been enlisted to put it out into the world.

‘KID A MNESIA EXHIBITION’ will be available beginning November 18 as a free download for PlayStation 5, PC and Mac at the Epic Games store. You can watch a trailer below.

‘KID A MNESIA EXHIBITION’ can be considered “a mutant re-engineering” of ‘KID A MNESIA’, the multiple format triple-album release marking the 21st anniversary of Radiohead’s ‘Kid A’ and ‘Amnesiac’ albums,” according to a press release.

The triple album ‘KID A MNESIA’ – made up of both Kid A and Amnesiac alongside a newly compiled third disc titled Kid Amnesiae – was released via XL Recordings on November 5, including the previously unheard track, If You Say The Word.
