What: With his gaming-inspired tunes, digital musician GRIMECRAFT will present new songs at a crowd-interactive, audio-visual show that’s aiming to push the boundaries of the concert format using the medium of VR. The platform’s creators have built “powerful tools to create this content and represent artists’ music and aesthetic in new ways through these shows,” CEO Adam Arrigo told us.

This will be TheWaveVR’s second show after putting on NFOLD, an audio-visual spectacle only possible in VR which featured LA-based digital artist Strangeloop in association with the label BRAINFEEDER. (check out the video below)

“In the coming weeks, you’ll see us releasing content that is incredibly varied and specific to that artist. We want each show to feel like a portal into that artist’s world- to have unique visuals and interactions that couldn’t be possible outside VR,” Arrigo told us.

    Hi, the “to your timezone” link for the wave is wrong, its the same as the first one and brings up 2:30 rather than 7.

    Incorrect.

  • Kim Brown

    I’d rather not meet Bill Nye the not so science science guy. Esp in VR where I am sure I will end up punching my wall by accident.

  • Kris Bunch

    That was disapointing. Maybe they should of provided a tutorial for Bill before they started. He spent the first 10 minutes just figuring it out. The audio was horrible as well. It did get me to use AltspaceVR. Which I had not before. I will have to go explore that platform. It has some potential.

    Bill Nye the annoying actor science guy, no thanks.
