The multi-user social platform will host the VR version of TOKi’s Lune Rouge, called the Lune Rouge Experience, starting Sunday, October 8th at 6:00PM PT (your local time here). Supported devices include HTC Vive and Oculus Rift, but is limited to US-based residents only.
The 50-minute multiplayer experience for TOKiMONSTA’s new album allows users to socialize, dance, paint with light, pop virtual champagne bottles, remix music and more. After the party, it will run on loop for users to experience after as well.
Programmed art direction from Strangeloop, the experience is hosted on a vibrantly rendered planet inspired by the Lune Rogue album artwork. Check out TOKiMONSTA’s SoundCloud (aka Jennifer Lee) to get an idea of what’s in store musically speaking.
The Lune Rouge Experience TheWave’s fifth show of this type, a concert series “aimed at pushing the boundaries of live music in VR,” say the developers behind the platform. Previous shows included Ninja Tune artist Ash Koosha’s AKTUAL, as well as Strangeloop’s N-FOLD, which was released in association with BRAINFEEDER.
“We wanted to do something special to support TOKi’s release, and create an entire world around the record,” said TheWaveVR’s CEO and Co-Founder Adam Arrigo. “Our goal as a company is to help artists create new experiences that let their fans get closer to their artistic vision. The Lune Rouge Experience lets fans literally step inside the album and experience her music in a new, interactive dimension.”
