Dysonics brings immersive 'VR audio' capture to moe. anniversary concert
Improvisational rockers moe. have been wowing audiences with their live shows for 25 years, and they’re currently traveling the country on a big anniversary tour.
But last Saturday night, the band was looking toward the future when they invited Dysonics to do an immersive 360° audio capture of a live concert at the beautiful Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, New York.
The band rocked out for 2+ hours. “Okayalright,” “New York City,” “Blue Jeans Pizza” were among the favorites in the first set. “Annihilation Blues,” “Captain America,” “Brent Black” were highlights of the second. They closed with a searing cover of Jethro Tull’s “Cross-Eyed Mary.”
Our eight channel RondoMic array (pictured above) was front-and-center for the entire show. With incredible accuracy, RondoMic captures sound environments in 360 degrees. The result is insanely lifelike and interactive playback over headphones that makes listeners feel like they’re there live. Think virtual reality, but for audio.
Speaking of virtual reality, we’ve been hard at work integrating RondoMic capture technology and our 3D motion-tracked audio engine with a growing number of VR environments, platforms, and content creators. And in doing so, we’ve learned that VR experiences incorporating live music have proven to be very powerful when paired with our interactive audio solution. So we’re obviously excited to have taken part in the 360° live capture of this show.
