For my Emerging Media Platforms class, I am testing a Playstation VR drawing app included in a new game, Music VR, developed by Harmonix. It's a significantly cheaper version of Google's Tilt Brush when considering headset and computer startup costs, and it allows you to load sidecar MP3 files to accompany the art creation process.
My hypothesis is that VR environments can be adapted for album art, and that future albums may be released entirely as VR experiences, with either curated videos, photos or art installations that augment a band's vision, or concept, for an album. As my concentration is Public Relations, I believe VR album art is an interesting promotional piece that bands can use to garner listener interest and engagement. For this field test, I am using Harmonix Music VR app to recreate album artwork for Nirvana's Nevermind.
