As part of their continued efforts to alchemize the worlds of live music and virtual reality, leading VR company Redpill has announced three new music livestreaming events in partnership with Renaissance Records.
The livestream series, called "Renaissance Engage," will feature performances by Patrice Bäumel, Franky Wah, and Yotto. They will be funneling bespoke, trailblazing DJ sets from their homes straight to viewers' traditional platforms, but there will be a sneak preview at the end of the show of the actual virtual worlds.
The new shows follow a successful summer for the “Renaissance Engage” series, which featured scintillating performances from legendary producers Hernan Cattaneo, Danny Tenaglia, and Sasha. Following the second phase's conclusion, Redpill VR is planning a large-scale virtual festival featuring soon-to-be-announced major artists in the EDM sphere, who will be virtualized into custom avatars in a cutting edge showcase of the latest in live social VR technology.
"Redpill VR’s mission is to push live music and social experiences into the future, and create new ways for people around the world to connect and experience music," said Isaiah Martin, Chief Magic Officer of Redpill VR. "One of our favourite parts of this work is connecting with up and coming talent in electronic music. We’re excited to give rising stars in electronic music a platform to share their music on, with the support of world-class Renaissance Records."
