Global dance music icon Armin van Buuren will host a series of exclusive performances in Sensorium Galaxy, the TIDAL-backed social VR platform that redefines the way people interact with each other and experience the arts. Van Buuren joins a growing roster of world-leading electronic artists, including David Guetta and Carl Cox, who are set to share their music in PRISM, a groundbreaking new virtual music world inside Sensorium Galaxy.
Chart-topping artist, music tastemaker and the only DJ in history to top the World’s Best DJs ranking on 5 occasions, Armin van Buuren is a true legend of the electronic music industry. A regular headliner at world-famous music events such as EDC Vegas, Tomorrowland, Ultra Music Festival, alongside his own internationally-renowned residency at Hï Ibiza, the trance figurehead is also well known for his entrepreneurial flair. From co-founding Armada Music, one of the world’s most successful dance music labels, to growing his weekly radio show — A State of Trance — into the world’s largest trance community with over 40 million listeners, the GRAMMY-nominated artist continues to innovate and assure his position as of the most influential figures in EDM worldwide.
Having conquered the dance music world, Armin van Buuren has now set his sights on the virtual world, joining forces with Sensorium Corporation, together with The Night League & High Scream, to announce a series of exclusive DJ performances in PRISM, the music world located within the alternate universe of Sensorium Galaxy. Sensorium will create a photorealistic avatar of Armin van Buuren using state-of-the-art motion capture technology, which will then be used to front the Dutchman’s performances once the platform launches early next year.
The concept of PRISM is developed with the artistic guidance of Yann Pissenem, CEO & Founder of The Night League and the mastermind behind award-winning nightclubs Hï Ibiza and Ushuaïa Ibiza. The environment and landscape of PRISM are ever-evolving, under the influence of sound frequencies and the strength of a sound wave, making it a perfect place for music events of a galactic scale.
