Exciting news for dance music fans, as Carl Cox has been announced as the first headliner of Sensorium Galaxy’s metaverse VR concert series. The British DJ and producer will be bringing his high-energy sets to PRISM world, a virtual world dedicated to music and dance within the Sensorium Galaxy digital metaverse, which is set to launch in the coming months.
Sensorium Galaxy is a new platform developed by Swiss startup, Sensorium, aiming to deliver unparalleled entertainment experiences. The platform has already signed up popular artists including David Guetta, Steve Aoki, Armin van Buuren, and Black Coffee to its extended reality environment.
In addition to the star-studded lineup, Carl Cox’s performance at the upcoming metaverse concert will mark the first time a lifelike human avatar will enter virtual reality, according to Sensorium’s Chief Metaverse Officer, Ivan Nikitin. The company has documented the process behind the creation of Cox’s photorealistic virtual avatar – from the detailed full-body 3D scan to the creation of high-fidelity experiences in digital spaces.
Interestingly, Sensorium launched a metaverse streaming service last year, featuring a lineup of AI-driven avatars dishing out 24/7 music sets. The company is leveraging XR technology, photorealistic visuals, and generative AI to attract global users to the metaverse, which will be available in VR, desktop, and via the mobile app.
Sensorium Galaxy’s ecosystem is powered by the in-platform currency SENSO, which can be used to purchase concert tickets, avatars, add-ons as well as settling transactions in the company’s recently announced Sensorium Arc.
The metaverse is quickly becoming a hotbed for innovative entertainment and gaming experiences. With the likes of Sensorium Galaxy attracting top-tier artists, it’s clear that the virtual world is set to redefine the entertainment industry in more ways than one.
