Description: The Blue Zula Concert Series is a fully immersive listening experience that is only possible in virtual reality. While travelling through the environment you change the mix in your headphones. Each track was recorded with over 20 microphones positioned in an array and placed in their virtual equivalent location to replicate real room acoustics. Musician/Solo developer’s debut. Recorded in Vancouver’s finest facilities. All the musicians were scanned and motion captured while playing the recorded tracks.
Review: Whatever the developer of ‘The Blue Zula VR Concert Series’ was smoking at the time of this app’s development I feel they shouldn’t smoke it any more. At its core, it’s a musical experience and could have easily been something worth enjoying with a marriage of both the music and some visuals. But for some reason, there is a lot of totally unnecessary things in this app that makes little to no sense at all. Things like the spray-paint, the pub games and others makes this app just an utter mess. For me, this is not something I would recommend unless it suddenly becomes free, or gets a massive tidy up.
