VINYL FOR THE 21ST CENTURY - THE RAW SPACE EXPERIENCE

Unless you’ve been idling on a remote desert island for the last few years, you’ll have read about Streaming ad nausea.

Streaming music is clearly here to stay but it’s also evolving to a point where we now have an artist creating an Anti-Streaming experience, we kid you not.

The digitally endowed chanteuse behind the Raw Space Streaming Experience is Beatie Wolfe.

She’s a singer songwriter and digital art-innovator and clearly a deeply talented streaming innovator.

The Raw Space Streaming Experience launched on May 5th at 11am EST and will live stream continuously for 7 days on YouTube.

To get a handle on Wolf’s goal of delivering the world’s first live 360-degree AR stream, watch the video below:

Wolfe describes her work the antithesis of current streaming experiences.

For Raw Space, I wanted to create the antithesis of our current streaming experience, which is somewhat compressed both sonically and creatively, or rather to create what I feel streaming music can be, and really celebrate the world of the album-its artwork, narrative, music in a fully immersive and multi-sensory way, which has the effect of placing the listener at the centre of this dynamic world.

No idle boast this. Not when you realize this series of live augmented reality performances takes place in a new performance area built around Nokia Bell Lab’s anechoic chamber.

It also adds to Bell Labs 50 years of pioneering experiments in art and technology that has seen artists of the calibre of John Cage, Robert Rauschenberg, Any Warhol and currently Beatie Wolfe collaborating with this famous technology company.

Reason enough to log on and view what promises to be a compelling performance especially for anyone with audiophile equipment.

And without further ado ...
