Virtual composer: Professor creates new musical worlds with solsticeVR

Most of the talk in music education lately has understandably revolved around moving instruction online. I thought it would be a nice change of pace to share something completely different:

To create music a user wears the headset and can add custom audio samples. Users can push the audio away or pull it toward themselves to create a mix with varied pitch levels, volume, distortion, echo, among other sound qualities. Users can record the mix to a hard drive and save it to a file, which becomes their own 3D audio musical composition conceived and produced in VR.

There’s no doubt that some form of virtual or augmented reality will be the next technological frontier. New tools such as solsticeVR are sure to attract students eager to create their own personal worlds of sound and music.
