Take Your Seat at the Session and Make the Virtual a Reality!
OAIM has just launched it’s brand new virtual reality / 360 degree Irish music sessions. Grab a VR headset, slip your smart phone in and play along with OAIM tutors and friends. Join Tola Custy (Fiddle), Kirsten Allstaff (Flute), Neil Fitzgibbon (Fiddle), Lisa Canny (Harp and Banjo), Ger Chambers (Accordion), and MJ McMahon (Guitar) in Cooleys Pub, Ennistimon and play along with some well known session tunes. Music notation and chords are provided for every tune. Most of the tunes played in the VR Sessions are taken from our 50 tune challenge. Learn 50 well known session tunes in a year, and practice them in sets at VR Sessions! Alternatively, these sessions can be enjoyed in 360 degrees on a desktop, laptop or tablet; manipulate the viewer so you can focus on which musicians or instruments you prefer.
This fully immersive Irish music experience can be accessed from the logged in area of oaim.ie website. There are two free sets to get you going (view below). Users can choose to stick with a limited number a free VR session videos, or they can upgrade to full access membership, to view OAIM’s full bank of 16 VR session sets and lessons. In the new year a new VR session set will be added each week until St Patrick’s day to the VR library.
