Description: By building a world based on sound instead of visuals we have created a place that relies on association rather than observation. During this almost lucid dream-like experience, you have limited control, and your gaze controls what you hear.

Part experiment, part art project, with Remembering we are researching the physical connotations and impact of sound in VR. Embodiment, or the sense of physically being somewhere, can be heavily influenced by sound. By connecting associative sounds to various forms of physical impact, we explore how sound can play a bigger role in the sense of being ‘here’.

Review: As more and more people continue to experiment with VR the more variety of things you can experience in VR you will be able to buy. Remembering is supposed to be an abstract VR experience about being born. Featuring a sort of journey from the womb to the real world this is one journey that most people won’t remember, but yet some do (hence the name of the app)

There is little to do here other than relax and let your view interact with various lights and sounds with each trip being unique to the person experiencing it. While quite a long experience, by the end of it, you should get a real presence of birth and the forgotten journey we have all taken (unless born via C-section).

This “experience” is something more lucid than a rest and relaxation app, but yet it’s not a fully interactive experience neither. It is something in between and something that most people will only play through once. But for just a few quid I think it’s worth it if you like your VR experience on the dream-like/trippy side. Who knew being born was just a strange experience!
