TheWaveVR Beta - ✿Smol Pearl Grey™ パ ールグレ✿

Dear Wave Community,

Thank you so much for being part of the early Wave community. We’ve enjoyed hearing your outpouring of excitement over the future of the platform, and are grateful for your feedback and ideas on how to make this thing the best it can be.

In the past 5 months since we launched our beta, we’ve hosted our first VR concert series with artists like Strangeloop, Ash Koosha, Heavygrinder, and Grimecraft, collected a ton of your feedback and put together a really ambitious plan to take TheWave to the next level. We’re hard at work building the next huge update to the app, and will be hosting one more premium show on Sunday 10/8 at 6pm pacific time, which will conclude our first concert series. We’ll be spending the coming months putting the finishing touches on some game-changing new features, which are going to fundamentally enhance what users can do in TheWave.

While we've been focusing on the next big thing, our community has been throwing fantastic home cave parties in the mean time. Please join our Discord community here for the schedule, and thanks so much for being patient while our small team works around the clock to deliver something great.

Can’t wait to share it with you!

Sincerely, TheWaveVR

Tomorrow night at 7 PM Pacific Time, London-based electronic musician Ash Koosha will perform in the US for the first time via virtual reality. Originally from Iran, Koosha is currently hindered by Trump’s travel ban, which targets people from majority-Muslim countries and bars them from entering the United States. Join us to prove VR has no borders.

Ash's wave brings his audio visual show, AKTUAL, to the US, where users will be transported inside his mind to watch him perform his music and conduct dynamic visual forms using our new performance tools.

Good people of TheWaveVR! We have some good news and some bad news, so we'll start with the bad first: the next show isn't going to be until two weeks from tomorrow. The good news is: it's going to be one hell of a show.

For those of you who don't know him, Ash Koosha is a visionary artist who pushes the boundaries of music and visual art. Born in Iran and living in London, Ash will bring his unique brand of mind-bending music to the US via TheWaveVR, since the political powers that be have prevented him from touring the US in his physical form.

We'll see you on August 16th for a truly unique synesthetic experience featuring the one and only Ash Koosha. Read more about Ash's story on our website.

See y'all Wednesday night at 7pm PDT!

Hey y'all, tonight Pearl Grey (me!) is doing a live Drum & Bass set inside The Wave! Last week, we released N-FOLD to the public!

Tonight's show will be mostly a stability test! Hopefully all will go well, but if crashes do happen, please send them to

Did I mention, tonight is Drum & Bass night? Hop in to TheWaveVR at 7PM PDT!
