How To Join Jean-Michel Jarre's Live VR Gig Today

Jean-Michel Jarre premieres 'Alone Together', a 40-minute musical set in the virtual world of the social XR cultural hub VRrOOm hosted by VRChat, on June 21 at 9.15 pm CET (3.15 pm EST, 12.15 pm PST).

 

Live from his studio, French musician Jean-Michel Jarre, via his Avatar, will perform live in a virtual stage and universe specially designed and produced by VRrOOm, simultaneously broadcast and accessible to everyone online via PC in video game mode, tablets, and smartphones in 2D mode, or in total immersion using any tethered VR headset.

 

This is a world premiere as to date, all "live" concerts happening inside immersive 3D worlds have in fact previously been pre-recorded and were usually set within preexisting video game universes.

 

In addition to the digital broadcast, a live broadcast of the virtual concert will be offered in city-center Paris, in the courtyard of the Palais Royal, to a selection of students from schools of the performing arts, training in sound and image, who will attend the live performance through a big screen.

 

At the end of this simultaneous performance, the participants gathered in the courtyard of the Palais Royal will be able to chat live with Jean-Michel Jarre’s avatar, erasing even further the boundaries between the physical and the virtual worlds. To conclude, the avatar will open a virtual backstage door to which Jarre will welcome the groups of students in-person to his studio to share the behind of the scene of the evening.

 

"Having performed concerts in extraordinary venues, virtual reality will now allow me to play in unimaginable spaces while remaining on a physical stage" says Jean Michel Jarre. "Virtual or augmented realities can be to the performing arts what the advent of cinema was to the theatre, an additional mode of expression made possible by new technologies at a given time," predicts Jarre.

 

The "Alone Together" musical experience, composed by Jean-Michel Jarre, is developed in co-production with VRrOOm, creator of virtual worlds dedicated to cultural events, hosted on the social XR platform VRChat.
