Design I/O - JOHN LENNON: THE BERMUDA TAPES John Lennon: The Bermuda Tapes in an interactive Album App that tells the story of John Lennon’s life changing journey, sailing through a mid-Atlantic storm to Bermuda in June 1980.

Through the screen of an iPad or iPhone you are able to interact with the narrative, moving, swiping and tilting, to bring to life the immersive environments and images of the story.
