VR Project Demonstration: Roy Magnuson
Leveraging the power of virtual reality and Unity, solsticeVR is a unique electronic music composition sandbox where amateurs and professionals alike can freely compose music based on their own original, custom samples. Designed to supplement and not replace traditional 2D audio environments such as Logic or Pro Tools, solsticeVR is an easy to use yet powerful, and deep experience. Artists are able to load up to 86 mp3, .wav, or .ogg files into custom arrays, and then instantiate and manipulate these samples in a truly 3D audio environment. Multiple acoustic, immersive spaces are available, ranging from a dark, reverberant cave, to a dry, bright snowy day, each with their own custom acoustic profiles.
At any point throughout the experience users can begin to record their mix directly to their PC in .wav format, capturing their creation as either a finished piece of improvisational art, or simply as a custom sample to be manipulated in another audio environment. The process of creating in solsticeVR is childish, fun, freeing, and truly different than other traditional methods of electronic composition.
