Soundscape VR ushered in 2022 by partnering with Evanescence, Griz and Umphrey’s McGee, among other talented artists. Now, the music-centric VR metaverse app is hosting virtual concerts for Husa & Zeyada, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, Hermitude and other artists.
Soundscape VR boasts a wide selection of VR concerts and musical experiences from a variety of artists. Over the summer, rock legend Slash held a virtual show on the platform where he (and band) performed the entirety of their album 4. Soundscape VR includes six audio-reactive virtual worlds with hundreds of gorgeous locations for users to discover.
“The Metaverse doesn’t have to be ugly,” Soundscape VR founder Eric Alexander says. “Musicians should know that they don’t have to sell out to Zuck’s Meta to elevate their art in the musical metaverse.”
“Soundscape VR continues to stay a step ahead of our competitors by offering the purest, deepest, and most expansive musical metaverse experience with ultra-high-quality audio and visual splendor that goes far beyond any Meta Zuckerverse,” Alexander adds.
Users can experience new music while exploring Soundscape VR on foot or via the platform’s free locomotion system. The music-centric metaverse also boasts highly customizable avatars for a more immersive experience.
Additionally, Soundscape VR is launching a PC Mode, built atop its VR mode. Cross-play between the two modes allows avatars from VR mode to interact and attend events with PC mode avatars.
Music in the metaverse is a burgeoning and lucrative industry. Popex recently secured $3.5 Million for music-based digital collectible NFTs. Rapper Snoop Dogg launched the first music video in the Sandbox metaverse earlier this year. Likewise, Decentraland hosted its second metaverse music festival on November 10.
In addition, the first blockchain-based musical, The Wrong Man, went live in March. The Wrong Man centers around a man framed for the murder of a woman he had a one-night stand with.
