TOKiMONSTA Partners Up With TheWaveVR To Release First Full-Length Album In VR
TheWaveVR has announced that they’ll be collaborating with LA based producer TOKiMONSTA in releasing a special interactive version of her newest album, Lune Rouge, in VR. Through TheWaveVR’s social platform, users will be able to enter the virtual world and see this fantasy world come to life.
Lune Rouge is TOKiMONSTA’s third full-length album, and the first since her recovery from a rare brain disease that forced her to relearn how to write music. “Being able to play Coachella three months after having the surgery was very significant to me,” she recently stated in an interview. “If I can do something like this, anyone can.”
“We wanted to do something special to support TOKi’s release, and create an entire world around the record,” said TheWaveVR’s CEO and Co-Founder Adam Arrigo. “Our goal as a company is to help artists create new experiences that let their fans get closer to their artistic vision. The Lune Rouge Experience lets fans literally step inside the album and experience her music in a new, interactive dimension.”
The Lune Rouge VR experience will launch on Sunday, October 8th at 6PM PST and will be available to any HTC Vive or Oculus Rift users through their app. The virtual world will feature some bedazzling scenery where the ground will be lit up under an exploding Sun. The virtual landscape itself was inspired by TOKiMONSTA’s music. Below is a quick video that displays what you’ll be getting yourself into.
TheWaveVR is a free platform so make sure to check out this special experience Sunday night. You can find the app on the Steam marketplace for both the Vive and Rift headsets. TOKiMONSTA is a truly talented artist and we’ll be sure to tune in then.
