An immersive out-of-body experience.

Large-scale multi-sensory VR project Starless, produced by Emma Roberts, will be in Kensington for Melbourne Music Week.

The 15-minute multi-modal installation offers an altered state of consciousness by blending physical and virtual spaces.

Using VR headsets, Starless combines smells, heat, wind and live sound to guide participants into an altered state of consciousness.

Director Ben Joseph Andrews, sound specialists The Convoy, and the neuroscience research team at Liminal VR have developed the multi-sensory virtual-reality exhibition.

From 5pm–10pm.

“It may be that which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet,’ but I should be loath to see a rose on a maiden’s breast substituted by a flower, however beautiful and fragrant it might be, that is went by the name of the skunk lily.”
