Musical VR startup TheWaveVR has revealed its latest partnership with an artist: electronica group The Glitch Mob. It’s turning their album ‘See Without Eyes’ into… well, something you see with your eyes.
“A VR odyssey of shifting dreamscapes choreographed to a 20-minute custom mix of the album” as the startup puts it, which will be released this week through TheWaveVR’s app for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive headsets, as well as made available as a live broadcast from the company’s Facebook page.
“This show expands upon what we’ve learned from doing several others, but goes much deeper into environmental storytelling and interactive design,” said CEO Adam Arrigo. “Part film, part concert and part art installation, the show explores themes fundamental to immersive technology, such as the relationship between isolation and social interaction in the digital world. It’s far and away our most ambitious endeavor to date.”
The project follows TheWaveVR’s recent $6m funding round. You can watch a trailer here.
