This is an application to blend art and music in VR. The color and controller vibration react to any audio source, and the user can control color/filter/particle effects as well as the dimensions of the video-art projection ellipsoid to discover unique and beautiful experiences!

Early Access Software

Get involved with this software as it develops.

Note: This Early Access software is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to use this software in its current state, then you should wait to see if it progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I've been working on the application for a long time and think it is ready to debut and receive feedback. It is fun to play around in and there is a lot of content to explore, but there are still some modifications that I would like to make/fix/add.”

Approximately how long will this software be in Early Access?

“~0.5 to 1 year”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“More spatial response/synchronization to audio
More functions (and possibly user input functions) with smoother parameter adjustment for particle fountain
Expand the art gallery and improve lighting/textures, add more art, poetry, filters
Improve the deep dream art with smoother transitions and varied features”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version can synchronize color (hue shift) and controller vibration. A bar spectrum can wrap around you and spatially respond to the music, but I would also like to add spatial synchronization to the 'particle fountain'

The 'particle fountain' includes over 20 waveforms with adjustable parameters
The art gallery includes 60 beautiful paintings”

Will this software be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The price will likely increase with the full release.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“I would like to receive and respond to feedback, suggestions, and bug reports in the forums and/or through email”

About This Software

This is an application to blend art and music in virtual reality. Artistic videos were generated using neural networks, and then the signal from any audio source is used to modulate the colors and controller vibrations. These modulated videos are projected onto an ellipsoid that the user can warp. They can also change many other parameters like color/filter/particle effects, leading to the potential for endless unique experiences!

  • also has an Art Gallery ft. over 60 paintings from talented artist Gene Saylor
  • Warp the dimensions of the video-art projection ellipsoid
  • Interactive Particle Fountain with over 20 functions. The particles use Gene's art stretched over spheres.
  • 13 Swimming Aquatic Creatures with over 100 textures
  • Over an Hour of unique equirectangular Neural Network feature visualization video art
  • User has authority to control to control many other parameters for endless variation (e.g. hue/saturation, color inversion filter, projection sphere dimensions, playback speed, projection ellipsoid dilation/amplitude/spacing, particle function inputs ... and much more!)
