Miro Shot x Ristband
Born from a collective of coders, musicians, graphic designers, and filmmakers, London’s Miro Shot are a band that have been pushing the limits of what a band can be since their inception. By using the advancements in virtual reality tech the band has developed a new and groundbreaking live show for fans, blending realities in a new type of live music experience.
“An amazing concert is transcendental, so we wanted to look at how our notion of reality has changed and fractured as technology becomes more and more prevalent,” explains founder and frontman, Roman Rappak.
Alongside their standard concerts, the band also offers a unique type of experience called SIMULACRA – a bold & dynamic performance showcasing where music is going, not where it has been. The performance is intentionally intimate in size so the band can deliver their live multisensory VR experience, controlling even the scent and temperature of the room during the performance. Seated and donning their VR headsets, the audience initially sees digital versions of the band. From there they are taken through various landscapes, blending virtual and augmented realities along the way.
