When Lady Gaga electrified the 2016 Grammys with her tribute to the late David Bowie, she did so with the power of technology behind her.

Gaga partnered with the tech giant Intel to bring her vision of honoring one of her biggest creative influences to life.

“We wanted to create an expression of not only David Bowie’s magic, but also to show that there is magic that can be made with technology,” Gaga said in a video shared by Intel. “The idea with this performance is to create something that feels as other worldly as the most beautiful mountaintop in the world.”

Gaga began the Grammys tribute with a rendition of Bowie’s classic “Space Oddity” while her face transformed into various iconic Bowie characters, from Ziggy Stardust to Aladdin Sane.
