Meet and Greet NYC - This Is Us (XR) is a multi-level social immersive experience exclusively created for the Austrian Cultural Forum New York.
THIS IS US is an XR Music Event centered around Austrian musicians based in NYC and their experiences being in the epicenter of the COVID-19 crisis in the US, which has hit artists particularly hard. Their music carries a message of hope and solidarity.
On December 10th, visitors from all over the globe gathered in the ACFNY XR world to experience an incredible virtual meet & greet. We created an immersive music installation where the audience could listen into single stems of the 'NYC-This Is Us‘ musicians within predefined ’sound-circles’. Over 100 people from 14 different countries registered and attended the event.
This multi-level immersive experience was exclusively created for the ACFNY by GO!insideVR in partnership with INVR.SPACE and HTC VIVE. New York production by Akmyrat Tuyliyev. In association with Animation Nights NY. VR-World Creation & Design by Jens Kull.
