The live music event’s future is all set to change forever. Live 3D VR streaming platform Inverse is partnering with the Victorian Music Development Office and Music Victoria.
The Music VR Backers Fund is a new industry grant that will offer Victorian musicians the opportunity to connect with fans globally by 3D virtual reality technology—providing performers a chance to diversify their income and communicate with fans in a new virtual reality way.
Applications are open to all Victorian musicians and artists. Each successful applicant will receive $2,500 to live stream their best performance from made-for-VR venue Project Redstone.
Eligible participants will be judged by an independent panel including Melbourne Music Week’s Elise Peyronnet, Box Hill Institute’s Ben Wiesner, and artists Peta Petidis, Tim Curnick, Kylie Auldist, etc.
Inverse, which was launched last year, is a Melbourne-based start-up offering a virtual reality streaming platform. Inverse with the Music VR Backers Fund, will look to pioneer the next generation of musical experiences.
“The Beyond Boundaries VR Festival will be the crescendo of the Music VR Backers Grant, where fans from all over the globe will be invited to virtually attend in-person and encounter all the facets of a live music festival – audio, visual, ambience and energy of the space in ways that transcend the live music experience.” – Darren Vukasinovic, founder Inverse.
“Through the Music VR Backers Fund and the Beyond Boundaries VR Festival, each artist will connect with domestic and overseas fans unable to attend gigs in-person, as well as reach new audiences in unique and groundbreaking ways through the fast-growing global virtual reality headset market, who are hungry to explore exciting new immersive experiences.” – Vukasinovic.
Participants can apply for the Music VR Backers Fund from March 3rd until March 28th. Complete details are available on Inverse website.
