With the release of its latest collaboration, TheWaveVR continues to push the boundaries of VR and make a name for itself building mind-bending virtual worlds centered on music.

Based in Austin and Los Angeles, TheWaveVR raised a $4 million seed round earlier this year. The company employs around eight people full-time, plus a number of contractors, and the VR concerts they make are experienced with a group of people similar to a rave in the real world. These concerts remain some of the most talked-about things you can do in VR as the startup partners with musicians and wholly embraces what’s possible with almost total access to your sense of sight and sound. The company’s latest virtual world is a cell-shaded production created in collaboration with Los Angeles-based producer TOKiMONSTA.

It is a world with roughly 50 minutes of music from TOKiMONSTA’s album Lune Rouge and it opens for visitors starting Sunday Oct. 8 at 6 pm Pacific. You can get TheWaveVR on Steam. The software works with HTC Vive and unofficially with Oculus Rift. The last concert saw 350 people attend simultaneously, which is a significant figure considering it’s only available in the United States officially on one headset. This latest production lets visitors “explore a planet inspired by the album artwork, dance in an interstellar rave under an exploding sun, and remix a 3D world.”
