Jack spoke with Roman about all things Miro. Listen below.
On Sunday 23rd July, I had the privilege of spending a day in residency at Somerset House, exploring the relationship between music and scent alongside Edition Perfume founder Timothy Han and fellow composer Roman Rappak. On the day, we composed and performed musical reactions based on scents mixed by Timothy, in the Givodan-sponsored Perfume Lab, in front of a live audience. Read a full breakdown of the performance here.
The combination of music and scent forms part of our collective work with Miro Shot – a project which aims to fuse live VR together with live music and sensory feedback to create an immersive reality concert which is experienced as part interactive music video and part live concert.
The Perfume Exhibition runs at Somerset House until the 31st August 2017.
Following our three day residency at the Institute of Modern Art in Amsterdam, the BBC have published an article, featuring a dissection of the experience and discussing how ‘virtual reality may change your life’. Many thanks to Vincent Dowd for coming to the show and writing the piece.
Following our sold out residency at CBK, Amsterdam, it was an honour to have been invited to bring our live Miro Shot CONTENT show to BAFTA HQ in London. We performed to three separate audiences in the Princess Anne Theatre on the 22nd May 2017.
From the 11-14th May, we will be playing our first Miro Shot public shows at CBK, Amsterdam. The three day residency will be the debut of our collective’s new show, CONTENT – a unique multi-sensory live VR and Mixed Reality concert.
The collective is a collaboration of artists from multiple fields, including musicians, filmmakers, photographers, illustrators and a scent artist.
NRG Magazine have released this article:
During the concert, a live band will play a unique piece of music to their audience through VR headsets. MIRO SHOT promises to embrace the participants in a multi-sensory experience, controlling parameters such as the wind, temperature, and even touch, offering people to switch between the real and the alternated virtual worlds. This way, for instance, when seeing a frozen forest, the viewer will feel the real cold and will be able to smell the real scent of the trees. Ute Kohlman, artistic director of CBK: “What’s really unique is that the audience will become a member of the collective. Visitors are allowed to participate and affect the artwork and music.
CBK Amsterdam works with artists, curators, and musicians from around the world to present unique exhibitions and events. After playing in Amsterdam on May 12-14, MIRO SHOT will take their performance to London, Paris, and Berlin, among other cities.
