Horizons (Google Daydream)
Intro: Horizons is a series of interactive music journeys for Daydream, featuring music from Bonobo. You control the music; the music controls the world. Use the Daydream controller to make an otherworldly jungle come alive with sound, or travel at breakneck speed through colourful hyperspace. Wired headphones are strongly recommended.
Verdict: Horizons is a small collection of 3 interactive musical ‘worlds’ in which you can control various audio and visual effects to make a 360 musical experience that is unique to you and you alone. While there are only 3 environments to choose from they can be replayed over and over because each time you go through it, in theory, it will sound completely different each time. Sure, the interaction elements are basic at best and simple to understand, but this helps to make it a strangely beautiful and oddly immersive app that is both intriguing and relaxing at the same time. While it is a little glitchy it is free so it’s not like you are gonna feel out of pocket if you don’t like it. Music in VR has never been so immersive and I would love to see a lot more tracks and environments being added.
