Assignment 3 — Video for Oculus

April 23, 2015
This assignment confused me a little – I wasn’t sure if we were supposed to find Oculus-ready video or find video we would theoretically like to see in Oculus.
I went with the latter because I think it’s more interesting. I chose this video, the Imperial March from Star Wars as played by the Vienna Philharmonic.
I think concert videos are a great way to use Oculus and other virtual-reality headsets. There’s nothing quite like experiencing a concert live – and, as a clarinet player, I can tell you it’s even better being onstage playing the music.
Virtual-reality seems like the best way to get someone who isn’t a trained musician up there, onstage, experiencing the music as the orchestra does.
