The introduction of headphones in the consumer market has provided a more intimate and immersive way of experiencing music. The forthcoming introduction of virtual reality devices to the domestic market might be as revolutionary for the image as headphones have been for sound.
Based in Amsterdam, WildVreemd believe in the expressive possibilities of virtual reality, the experiences that they can provide for users and the new opportunities in store for artists from various fields to present their work in unseen ways.
