The world’s first virtual reality music scene VR soundscape made its official debut last month Suwannee hulaween Florida music festival. Created by Groove Science Studios, the Soundscape VR platform will launch a free expansion on December 20 that will add private and public social VR worlds and multiplayer rhythm play, along with a redesigned interface and other additional enhancements.
The Suwannee Hulaween Soundscape VR experience allowed participants to explore audio-responsive virtual reality worlds. Live music was channeled through the sound system while a visual component was projected onto 120-inch screens. Here’s how the Suwannee Hulaween Soundscape VR experience was described:
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 Suwannee Hulaween festival,â said Andrew Carroll, producer of the festival’s Spirit Lake. 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.
