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.
