There are two ways of creating experiences 

🔍 🌎️ ONE: DiscovAR

Artist picks locations all over the world where it would premiere new music through AR experience


︎Most people record concerts to share memories with peers, ConcertAR allows artists to add to this digital experience by introducing new ideas to the screen/interface.

︎A more shareable experience since each person’s way of interacting with AR will be unique.

How it works 

The user can discover music by either tapping on Find Music or by responding to a notification.

When a user is in the proximity of such a location, it gets a notification about new music floating around.

︎Find Music leads to the next screen which is a map view of all the live experiences near you.
︎There are filters on top, and an overview of the experience closes to you. ︎ is you. Simple navigation leads you to the spot.

︎Once you reach, you can interact with the AR by tapping the cube.
