Ode to Joy VR

2018/VR/Music

Ode is an immersive media experience which consists of a 47 part acapella rendition of an orchestra performing Ode to Joy. Filmed and recorded on a Sunday and a half, we composited student volunteers singing their different parts onto a 180 degree stereoscopic VR video. I recorded, mixed, and mastered the different parts to recreate this classic Beethoven piece.

Here it is on three vertically-oriented 3D displays!

Here is the final video on YouTube! View it with a VR viewer and use headphones for the full experience.

Collaborators:Michael Naimark (Project Lead), Bruce Luo, and Ada Zhao
