I don’t know how many of you will read this, I honestly don’t know how many of you aren’t bots. Either way I feel obligated to let everyone know that this blog is going to be changing direction and purpose, at least for the time being.
This has always been my outlet to share the magic, the hype, and most importantly the awe that new technologies can bring to the world. I would very much like to continue to do this… this glorified news aggregation, keeping everyone informed and up to date on innovations and new creative endeavors, but the problem is that I’ve been caught up in one of these innovated creative endeavors, TheWaveVR.
I’ve been a huge fan of TheWaveVR for a long time and it has as of late evolved into the most impressive creative/social platform I have ever seen. Allowing musicians to craft custom audio-reactive worlds and throw epic virtual parties with breathtaking interactive effects.
The above screenshot is an amalgamation of built in effects, custom models created by me, and remixed art based on stuff created by fellow ‘Wavers’. I have control over much of the visuals and lasers and can make them dance to the music with us.
Having just been signed as a resident DJ at TheWaveVR (a dream come true!), I’ll be spending even more time crafting custom visuals and creating epic musical journeys to take everyone on each week!
That said, this blog isn’t going away. You may actually see more posts from me, but they will be for the most part related to TheWaveVR. This VR DJ gig is an unpaid passion project and until I can quit my day job or afford to cut back on hours, I just won’t have time to discover and share as much general Tech & VR news.
I will, however, do my best to keep you all updated on my journey in TheWaveVR. I hope to dance with some of you in VR soon!
My first global set as a resident DJ for TheWaveVR was surreal and amazing!
The set was mixed using TheWaveVR’s built in music and visual effects combined with some community & self-made art pieces from poly.google.com.
Being able to have full control over crafting the mix and the visuals for each set is just such an amazing opportunity. Having an ‘unlimited’ budget for set pieces and effects opens up so many creative options for crafting reality bending visuals and syncing them with the visuals both live and with tilt-brush audio-reactive brushes.
The Resident DJ program was just expanded so there are shows happening just about every single night now and with the recent oculus store release and (limited) global access, there’s pretty much always other people around to dance and socialize with.
Here is the calendar, hope to see you in the metaverse:
