Musitechnic Formation launches a unique project, bringing communities together by making art accessible to all!
Musitechnic Formation is very proud to announce the launch of its brand new project called MusicFutures – The expanse of music towards the Metaverse.
The initiative targets the implementation of a Virtual Reality (VR) framework aimed to strategically increase the digital literacy and ongoing digital transformations, as well as the resilience and sustainability of the art sector. The framework comprises a VR space featuring equipment and collaborative virtual reality tools, as well as training sessions (workshops) to be offered to music creators, sound engineers and other stakeholders within the art ecosystem. The training sessions will cover topics such as Virtual Reality Digital Audio Workstation, Audio for Virtual Reality, Live Streaming for Virtual Reality Audiences and The Future of Sound & Music in the Metaverse.
With this project in mind, Musitechnic is aiming to reach 4 main goals:
To contribute to the increase of the artistic sector resilience and sustainability by supporting the exploration of new ways to create and deliver artistic performances, and sell tickets to remotely located audiences, as well as within the Metaverse.
To support artists and producers in designing experiences with the potential to increase the accessibility to people with disabilities to attend performances by means of extended reality gears, platforms and applications.
To promote and support initiatives like the ImagineNATIVE VR and the 267 – An Indigenous VR Project, among others, in order to bring indigenous art into the realms of the extended reality, whilst boosting its visibility and appreciation.
To increase awareness
To increase awareness among musicians and artists in general about the impacts of Non-fungible Tokens (NFTs) on artistic creation and music / arts commercialization.
The first workshops will be offered in July 2023, where 30 seats will be reserved for the art ecosystem. Musitechnic Formation will be offering for free the majority of available spots to visible minorities, indigenous people, and for artists facing social and/or financial insecurities.More information will be provided in 2023.
We would like to extend our gratitude and acknowledge the support of the Canada Council for the Arts (CCA) – CCA Digital Greenhouse Grant which made this project possible, as well as the support of the Canadian Live Music Association (CLMA), the Artscape Daniels Launchpad, and Montreal Downtown – MTLCV.
