The Virtual Reality (VR) technology sure is expanding at a fast pace. Gaming, video, movies; it has successfully entered each segment in a short period of time. Among the numerous fields that VR has entered is music, taking the experience to another level. What’s more? Famous musician A.R. Rahman agrees to it.

A.R. Rahman’s ‘Vande Mataram Live-In-VR’ experience is set to premiere at the NFDC Film Bazaar event and he feels that the new technology will help in musical experiments.

 

‘Being a professional musician, after a point I tend to get bored unless there is a new challenge and room for experiment. The new technology of virtual reality will help to experiment in music to a different level,’ he told the media.

Among the unique attractions of this year’s Film Bazaar is the Virtual Reality Sidebar. This space includes three knowledge series sessions dedicated solely to Virtual Reality.

When asked about what made him premiere ‘Vande Mataram Live-In-VR’ experience at the NFDC Film Bazaar, he said,’ Well, it is a very interesting place.’
