“An artistic reimagining of what the medium can and should be.” - Oculus
Drops is a new type of musical instrument, designed from the ground up for VR. It’s a cross between a drum machine and a zen garden that diverges from traditional music interfaces and enables the organic composition of complex rhythms and melodies.
Users create compositions driven by the beat and flow of rhythmically cascading marbles as they strike multi-tonal blocks. The laws of physics and time are controlled by the user, encouraging novel configurations of tempo, tone, and space.
It's intuitive to use and accessible to musicians and non-musicians alike. Its meditative environment is inspired by the renowned architecture of Tadao Ando, and it includes sound banks created by noted musicians Patrick Higgins and Patrick Russell.
