Loki first got excited about VR when a local university advertised in 1994 that they were getting virtual reality. Lawnmower Man fresh in his memory he was ready. Alas rather a few years past until he got an Oculus Rift in his hands (and on his head) and then, PS VR and Vive. Loki studied computer music at Monash, was a nomad, directed a game studio, worked on documentaries as a sound designer and did media art installations in virtual reality. The director of the first live streamed machinima, an MMO, and the first VR experience to be a keynote at a major art festival, Loki has been involved in VR since the start of the current renaissance. He is currently the director of Chroma Coda, makers of The Music Room. The Music Room is a collection of instruments that you play in virtual reality.. musicroomvr.com
