Jean-Michel Jarre, a French composer and legend of electronic music, held a large-scale concert in virtual reality - in the city of Oxyville, specially created for the release of his new album, in the VRChat metaverse. Limited admission and the shift from mass to quality personal experience did not prevent the concert from becoming one of the most popular VR events. And the city will eventually open to the visit of all comers.
The city remains on VRChat, will participate in international festivals, and will open to the public in time for the release of the Oxymore album in the second half of the year. The developers are considering publishing the world as a standalone VR application, as well as video formats, both traditional and immersive.
