Soundscape VR presented the world’s first virtual reality music stage at the Suwannee Hulaween Music Festival October 26-28, 2018.
After successful installation at Burning man, Soundscape VR, created by Groove Science Studios, Inc., brought its cutting-edge VR music experience to Florida and dazzled festival-goers as they entered a surreal, interactive and explorable virtual world of music and light. Live music was streamed simultaneously to the audio-responsive VR worlds and the on-stage sound system, as gamers created the visual experience for spectators via 120-inch projection screens.
Over the three days of the festival, thousands of Hulaween attendees had the opportunity to experience the first virtual reality activation of its kind. Consistent lines of people waiting for the chance to enter the Soundscape VR world were a regular sight; dance, laugh and enjoy the community of fellow festival-goers as they cheered on their friends’ protests projected on the big screen. Each player seemed to take a different path to explore the world, with many eventually removing the helmet to immediately return to the back of the line for another round.
As the rhythm of the bass sent waves of light rushing through the virtual world, players took to the skies to explore their new realities; fireworks, paint and names scribbled in the sky. A world would exist deep within a moving nebula of infinite scale, following it on an icy peak bathed in the glow of the Northern Lights. As one player created a cyclone of embers inside a crystalline cave, the next launched a fire hose of light, bombarding a distant planet.
âWe were very happy to have the opportunity to host Soundscape VR at this year’s show.
Suwannee Hulaween Festival, âsaid Andrew Carroll, producer of the festival’sâ Spirit Lake â. âWhat a unique and exciting experience to enter the world of Soundscape VR! Every time I stopped at the facility there were lines of people waiting to venture into this out of this world experience. Most people have never seen anything like it! Hope we can get them back next year. “
