Our main experience is the Virtual Reality Symphony Orchestra. (or simply – VRSO)rnrnOur game puts the player in the place of the conductor and allows the player to interact with a full symphony orchestra like a real coductor does on stage. As the player progresses through the piece, beautiful visuals will start filling the symphony hall and the entire place will come to life. rnrnAnyone can make the music in this experience their own. This will eliminate barriers between people listening to music and the people creating it, giving people the opportunity really create something unique.
