Rock band Evanescence, American jam band Umphrey’s McGee and American DJ and electronic music producer Griz join Soundscape VR’s Magic Mirror platform. Also on board are the lesser-known electronic music artists Memo Rex and Crescendoll.
Soundscape VR launched Magi Mirror as part of its metaverse last year. Magic Mirror lets artists share their music in the metaverse using a combination of AR and VR technologies. Eric Alexander, founder of Soundscape VR, says in the press release, “The fact that such prestigious and progressive artists as Evanescence, Griz, and Umphrey’s McGee have chosen to showcase their art on our platform is truly humbling.”
With immersive virtual concerts, Magic Mirror lets fans from around the globe share in these virtual experiences. The metaverse’s virtual concert spaces utilize a design that allows them to scale infinitely. This means there’s no limit to the number of virtual attendees at any given event.
Soundscape’s Musical Metaverse Competition
Magic Mirror isn’t the only music-centric metaverse out there, however. Melodity’s metaverse, DoMeta, aims to maximize musical artists’ incomes and decentralize the market. Other metaverses have also held concerts; in September, Roblox hosted a show for Twenty-One Pilots.
Soundscape VR is also launching new avatar customizations, including new hairstyles and clothing. By attending a virtual concert with one of the newly signed artists, users will also be eligible to win a Valve Index VR headset.
To join the Magic Mirror metaverse, download the SVR application free from Steam VR or Oculus Home. Those interested can learn more through the company website.
Alexander goes on to add, “It should serve as a signal to the entire industry that Soundscape VR is THE place for a true immersive experience that will power the music world into the metaverse like no other platform or technology. Eight years in the making, the future has arrived and it is Soundscape VR.”
