This week, Jauz officially announced his new Dangerous Waters EP due out January 17th to piggy back on the tour he just announced in October, but that’s not all he has in store.
Fans will be able to experience the Dangerous Waters tour in a live VR experience on January 8th thanks to Wave Studio, the same team who brought Rezz’s Beyond The Senses EP to life in July. The Los Angeles native will transform into a real-time avatar and descend into the depths of “Dangerous Waters” for the worldwide premiere of his music, with visuals inspired by Jauz’s longtime respect and obvious affinity for sharks.
“An underwater concert is the kind of mind-blowing world that virtual concerts empower,” said Adam Arrigo, co-founder and CEO of Wave. “This Wave will be absolutely stunning – showcasing what’s possible with game engine graphics and the creative drive to perform for fans in a totally interactive way. Jauz is a gamer who lives on sites like Twitch, so he’s designed his Wave to embrace this live audience connection. We will see you in Dangerous Waters in the new year!”
Fans can tune in through Jauz’s Twitch and YouTube channels. For those who wish for a more immersive experience, they can virtually attend as their own avatar, using Wave’s VR and PC desktop apps that are supported on Steam for HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and Windows Mixed Reality.
Remaining tickets for the Dangerous Waters tour are available through his website here.
