I have produced a bit of a brand new experience with a focus on 'zero gravity' using a VR space, which has a high degree of freedom with no size or direction restraints. At first, you are in a room, around you are black and white bars lined up like piano keys. Like how the sounds of nature are locked up in a piano, you too are locked up. After a short period the VR space breaks, and you are thrown into the sky with the piano. Every time the keys are hit they produce a sound. In this zero gravity space you have been thrown into, you freely float about, collide with objects, and make different sound patterns each time you enter. Lastly, just the objects around you regain their gravity, and only you are left in the zero gravity space. While listening to the ring of noises, you drift in this space with gravity slightly different to what you normally experience. I created this project while aiming to create a continuous nice feeling that you will never get tired of, like the kind experienced when lying down and looking up at the sky.
