It’s hailed as being a first of its kind music listening experience.
The Melody of Dust, a virtual reality (VR) music and gaming experience created by multidisciplinary artist Nick Koenig in collaboration with Viacom, is out now.
And if you own the HTC Vive headset, you’re ready to enjoy it.
Dubbed a “new art form” by Rolling Stone, this immersive exploration of sight and sound has players discover and unlock more than 80 original melodies hidden within objects found in an animated castle. Together, the melodies form a kind of VR album shaped by the unique gameplay. A self-titled “soundtrack” by Hot Sugar is also available on iTunes and Spotify in conjunction with its release.
“The atmospheric fantasy world in The Melody of Dust allows you to confirm that any object in the universe is a musical instrument, whether we know how to play it or not,” said Koenig.
