We're excited to have our Phantasm Virtual Reality experience now live on the Oculus Go Store. This experience, our first Chamber Music New Zealand VR experience, transports you behind-the-scenes with internationally-celebrated, award-winning viol consort Phantasm, who have been described as the best viol ensemble in the world. Under the direction of globally-renowned Laurence Dreyfus, this consort has performed to great acclaim around the world.

Entering the intimate world of chamber music in Virtual Reality and high fidelity, you will delight in a unique and immersive encounter beyond the concert hall, as they craft their music in the rehearsal room and engage in intimate, personal conversations about the meaning of the music to them personally, and to the world.

“We designed this experience to allow passionate early music enthusiasts to appreciate Phantasms creative interaction behind the scenes – an opportunity not afforded by concert performance or video” said Brian, CEO of I Want To Experience.

Their Gramophone Award-winning recordings have been lauded as eloquent, sensitive, sensuous and beguiling. Stylistic understanding, artistry and skill, animated by a passion for early music, Phantasm offers an unforgettable experience.  Download Now on the Oculus Go Store and Google Play Store.
