Oxymore, the latest music creation of Jean-Michel Jarre (official release in september 2022) takes place in Oxyville, a Quest-compatible virtual city inspired by iconic musical instruments of the earliest stages of electronic music. The intangible shadow of Pierre Henry hangs over the immersive work, inviting the public to lose themselves in an unexpected acoustic multicanal journey orchestrated by Jean-Michel Jarre.
Oxyville is a city with 11 districts designed to match the concert's 11 movements that the audiences can explore in full immersion, either in a real Dome or in a Social VR world.
