Sony has this week released a new musical PlayStation VR experience which allows you to become immersed in a live studio performance of Brahms’ Hungarian Dance No.
Created in partnership with award-winning violinist and Sony artist Joshua Bell, the PlayStation VR experience is now available to download for free directly from the PlayStation Store.
Watch the making of the Joshua Bell VR Experience below to learn more about what you can expect from the musical VR experience. Ian Bickerstaff Technical Director at SIE Immersive Technology Group explains more :
With adaptive audio and positional tracking, the Joshua Bell VR Experience will transport you into the session and allow you to immerse yourself completely in the performance from every direction. The Experience is available now at PlayStation Store as a free download for PlayStation VR.
Joshua Bell is a celebrated, Grammy award-winning violinist with a career spanning more than 30 years as a soloist, chamber musician, recording artist, and conductor. Generally regarded as one of the finest classical musicians of this generation, he just completed a critically-acclaimed residency at the Kennedy Center for the Performance Arts and National Symphony Orchestra in Washington D.C. He is also a technology enthusiast.
When he tried an early PlayStation VR prototype a few years back, he was overwhelmed by its potential. He wondered how it could be used for classical music. At the same time, our group here in the UK happened to be researching new techniques for filming live events, particularly with music, and it seemed like the perfect opportunity to work together and collaborate with some of our other Sony companies.
