David Bowie's 'InstaMiniSeries' Premieres Online

(Radio.com) Before he released his final album Blackstar, David Bowie made the music available to a creative team at Instagram so they could use it for their burgeoning video series InstaMiniSeries. Now the first episode of UNBOUND: A InstaMiniSeries. is available, and you can watch it via the platform's channel @instaminiseries.

Per the platform's video limitations, the episode is only 15 seconds long. The camera tracks across a darkly-lit library, revealing a cast of characters: A man gets a book off the shelf, a woman stirs her tea, a young boy plays with a toy truck and a woman in red completes a needlepoint, among other persons in the room.

The series is meant to visually narrate Bowie's album, rather than present a linear, more traditional narrative. To that end, the first episode's dark, brooding feel but communal spirit sets an interesting tone. Watch the first episode here.
