REVOLT SVP of sales and partnerships, Mike Roche, announced the latest partnership at SXSW Music that would bring Jaunt and REVOLT together to film and release virtual reality performances shot at REVOLT Studios in Hollywood and REVOLT events across the United States.
“Our audience is craving more access to their favorite artists and we are proud to put a stake in delivering innovative VR content that brings them beyond the front row,” stated REVOLT TV SVP of sales and partnerships Mike Roche.
During SXSW Music on March 20 and 21, tech and music enthusiasts can get a first-look at a performance by Grammy-nominated artist Big Sean at the REVOLT House on Rainey Street. The house at SXSW will feature day performances by artists including Alex Winston, Chris Webby ft. Bobby Grant, Hiatus Kaiyote, James Davis, Joey Badass, Joywave, Mini Mansions, Priory, Public Service Broadcasting, Revel In Dimes, Towkio, Two-9 and YNGCULT with more names to be announced.
The immersive performance was filmed using Jaunt’s 360 degree, stereoscopic 3D cameras and 3D sound-field microphones mixed in Dolby Atmos, to give viewers the sense of being right onstage.
“REVOLT works with the most innovative names in popular music. We’re excited to team up with such a forward-thinking media network to deliver cutting edge immersive experiences to audiences like never before.” said Jaunt CEO Jens Christensen.
Jaunt continues to provide consumer friendly immersive content experiences (Jaunt and North Face) and their latest partnership with REVOLT is a perfect example of providing fans with a unique opportunity to get on stage with their favorite artists.
The Big Sean performance will be made available soon through Jaunt’s official site along with many other filmed performances at jauntvr.com/content.
