'Transition' is an award winning virtual reality experience based on the music of Kettel & Secede - 'Canned Forever'. A metaphor for death, ‘Transition’ takes you on a journey from one world into the next.
Together with Mike von Rotz I set out to finish my studies at the Utrecht University of the Arts with a Virtual Reality Project. At the time, late 2015, the Oculus Demo page was saturated with what we call ‘Rollercoaster Experiences’. These experiences often put the user in an extreme situation where simulation sickness is common. We felt like there was room for a more soothing experience.Thus, we started working on ‘Transition’ with the following criteria: A soothing experience which allows the user to get used to the new medium. We also decided to base the experience on the music of two of my favorite musicians, Kettel and Secede. The track ‘Canned Forever’ from their album ‘When Can’ had always been a big inspiration for me and felt like a perfect match for this project. We're are still very grateful that they gave us permission to use their music.
