Genie Music, a Korean AI audio platform and mobile social network game, Play Together, are collaborating on “L1STEN”, a metaverse music talk show. Over the last three months, the two companies have worked diligently to create a new type of concert, melding music with games, reality and virtual reality.
Currently, Play Together is offering metaverse concerts services where artists can perform and interact with fans. The goal is for users to feel as though they are at a real concert as they view artists in-game avatars performing on a digital stage.
L1STEN premiered on February 4th with singer Jamie Park Jimin as the headliner. Jamie chose the songs she performed to represent her life story. Additionally, the artist met with fans within the platform.
HAEGIN, the company behind Play Together, is a South Korean mobile game developer known for its title RPG Summoners War. Founded in 2017, the company includes just over 100 employees who, according to the press release, “work passionately to create uniquely entertaining games that players from all over the world can enjoy.”
Play Together & Metaverse Concerts
Play Together is far from the only platform offering metaverse concerts. Recently, Animal Concerts partnered with Klaytn to host metaverse concerts. Likewise, Melodity’s Do-Meta platform is a music-centric metaverse that allows fans and artists to connect. Even Roblox hosts metaverse concerts like the one Twenty-One Pilots performed in September 2021. Additionally, Soundscape VR recently partnered with Evanescence and Griz to host concerts via the metaverse.
Play Together is a casual multiplayer social network that attempts to appeal to fans of casual and sandbox games. The company boasts in a press release that players can “progress freely in a non-linear fashion.” The title also allows users to customize their avatars and homes through in-game purchases. Those wishing to experience L1STEN can download Play Together on the App Store or Google Play.
