FAQ

WHAT IS PATCH ?

Patch is a modular, immersive musical instrument environment made for Virtual Reality to code, create and connect your own instruments and sounds, and interact with them live with your body, your gestures, and other people.

WHAT CAN I CREATE WITH PATCH?

Patch doesn’t just mimic existing musical instruments, it explores music beyond your average experience. Thanks to over four years of research and collaboration with XR artists and musicians, Patch can create new, exiting hybrid creations and compositions that have never been seen before, and never been heard before.

WHY USE VR TO MAKE MUSIC?

Patch lets you interact spatially with visuals and sonic interactions that respond to where you’re looking and how you move - a full-body, full-sensory experience. It’s an immersive, inventive world to explore, rather than just another rectangular editing interface.

They will be given access to Patch software for free and daily online classes on Twitch, and personal support to help them build their taylor instruments, create visual effect and compose a track for the showcase day. LIVE EVENT – 25 July – the seven individuals/collectives will each perform with their virtual instrument at A MAZE / Berlin 2020 - Total Digital After the event, all participants will be given the opportunity to enter our early-adopter program, to keep working with the software and refine their instruments with privileged access to our development team.
