On July 23, REZZ will take her fans beyond the senses for her most immersive fan experience to date. The producer will transform into virtual REZZ – a live avatar-version of her on-stage persona – and join her legions of fans in a virtual world premiere of her new EP Beyond The Senses, out July 24. “I’m excited to be doing my listening party in virtual reality next week,” said REZZ. “I wanted to take everyone beyond their senses by engaging with my music and visuals in a totally new and unique way. It’s definitely going to trip you out.”
“We’re huge fans of REZZ and the world she’s created around her music,” said Adam Arrigo CEO and Co-Founder of Wave. “We’re excited to visualize and connect people within that world for the first time using the power of our platform. Fans won’t have to travel the globe to join the show, and we love that their first experience of the record will be mindblowing in a way only games and digital mediums can afford.”

Wave Studio in the company’s Los Angeles office helps artists easily connect with their global fan base in real time through proprietary avatar technology. Wavecast is a broadcast tool to beam live shows across VR, desktop and social streams. REZZ will debut exclusive, first-ever interactive moments in the ‘Beyond The Senses’ virtual listening party for fans joining via Twitch. Fans in the Twitch chat will be able to effect some of the visuals live as the show unfolds.
