Sensorium is announcing the launch of Sensorium Galaxy's VR multiplayer public playtest, opening up access to new virtual reality and content features inside virtual worlds, while also laying out a new metaverse doctrine. Delivering on its promise to develop a full-fledged metaverse with unparalleled entertainment offerings, Sensorium is unveiling PRISM, a virtual world dedicated to music, as the first destination to become available to users. Inside this environment, visitors can take part in the galactic Sensorium Party 24/7, where Sensorium's pioneering AI avatars can be seen performing. The new stage enables users to become familiar with the metaverse's VR mechanics, the immersive environments that underpin it, and avatar customization options. Within these spaces, users will also have, for the first time, the opportunity of interacting with others in VR and via voice chat, meeting not only other human participants but also virtual beings. Sensorium Galaxy is emerging as the first AAA inhabited metaverse with a community of AI-powered avatars populating its virtual worlds. As such, the company is enabling social AI as a core technology in powering next-generation networking, relationship building and content creation, for users and artists alike. In a demonstration of the unprecedented capabilities of generative AI technology to hold contextual conversations, Sensorium is opening up access to the Salvador Dali Experience. Within this virtual reality environment, users will have the opportunity to meet the AI avatar of the now-resurrected genius and chat with him across an endless number of topics. This metaverse's doctrine is formulated by Sensorium's press secretary and AI driven avatar Yonaka, who further details Sensorium Galaxy's global ambitions. "We are at the nascent of a new era in digital entertainment and Sensorium is challenging the limitations of modern life in the real world. The future will be exciting, interactive, generative and finally free from real or imaginary limitations. Sensorium is paving the way for users to live out alternative life scenarios in virtual worlds, build a digital self and achieve digital immortality through which they choose the digital footprint they're leaving behind and allow future generations to interact with it," they added. Built on top of Unreal Engine 5 as well as advanced VR and AI technologies, the depths of Sensorium Galaxy unfold across several virtual worlds, each dedicated to different types of entertainment and filled with curated content. Developed in collaboration with nightlife entertainment visionaire, music trendsetter, and Hï Ibiza and Ushuaïa Ibiza founder Yann Pissenem, PRISM is already a confirmed destination for shows by acclaimed world-class performers, including David Guetta, Carl Cox, and Black Coffee, among others. The first three performances by real-world musicians in PRISM are slated to take place during the first half of 2023, picking up from virtual artists being launched within PRISM now. Scheduled for release in the second half of 2023, the virtual world MOTION will be next in introducing audiences to Sensorium Galaxy's virtual environments and its 'virtual life' mechanics. Sensorium Galaxy is available on Steam, where users can access the metaverse's public playtest, as well as the Sensorium Galaxy mobile app. Full cross-platform access, including a desktop version, will become available in the near future.
Sensorium Galaxy Enters Public Playtest and Lays Out Global Metaverse Vision
Sensorium Premiers Second Streaming Party Set In PRISM’s Volcanic Landscapes
Dust, fire and intergalactic volcanic sights set the stage for the second installment of Sensorium Parties featuring this metaverse’s trailblazing AI artists. ‘Volcano’ follows the success of ‘Meteor Vortex’, whose premier coincided with the launch of the world’s first in-engine metaverse streaming channel last year at the hands of Sensorium. As part of the latest party, ‘Volcano’ will be introducing a new lineup of AI-driven DJs - AX421, JAI:N, and Yonaka - who will be joining resident artists Natisa Sitar, Kàra Màr, and Ninalis. After receiving over seven million YouTube views to date, Sensorium’s first metaverse party has become the most talked about music event held in a virtual world. And with the latest series of performances, fans will be presented with never-before-heard, supercharged sets delivered by AI DJs, and also enjoy heart-racing and otherworldly virtual reality landscapes, most noticeably PRISM’s erupting volcano. “We’re ecstatic to kick off 2023 with ‘Volcano’ featuring the foremost AI-driven music acts and now set in an incredible new location. Everything is in place for both fans and metaverse newcomers to have an unforgettable experience that can be both a celebration of music and dance with an AI twist”, says Sasha Tityanko, Sensorium’s Deputy CEO and Art Director. Sensorium’s AI performers draw their inspiration based on generative capabilities which allow them to create original and distinctive music from a combination of over 60 different genres. In addition, all virtual performers are capable of engaging in effortless, unscripted and wide-ranging conversations with their audience thanks to their cutting-edge conversational AI skills. Sensorium Parties are a window into the full-fledged version of this metaverse, set to host performances by David Guetta, Black Coffee, Steve Aoki, and Armin van Buuren among other chart-topping artists. Until then, users can enjoy these remarkable AI performances through the Sensorium Galaxy Streaming channel, available online and via the Sensorium mobile app.
Sensorium to Lead Conversation on AI Virtual Beings at LEAP 2023
Sensorium is looking forward to taking part in Leap Tech Conference, one of the world’s foremost technology gatherings. Based out of the Riyadh Front Expo Centre in Saudi Arabia, the second edition of Leap Teach will be taking place between 6-9 February 2023. In 2022, the tech conference became the largest debut tech event in history, bringing together over 100.000 visitors, 600 exhibitors, 5000 global CEOs, 330 top investors and expert speakers to cover the latest technology topics. Over $6.4 billion worth of initiatives and programs were announced in connection with the event. Now back for its latest edition, LEAP will be featuring over 500 speakers, including Sensorium’s Deputy CEO and Art Director, Sasha Tityanko. Sasha will be delivering a keynote speech on the topic “AI-Driven Virtual Beings: Re-shaping the future of social connections and entertainment in the metaverse”, where she will lay out Sensorium's vision for AI in the context of the emergence of virtual worlds, trace the path taken to create the first AI-inhabited metaverse and explore the opportunities unlocked by the technology. “It’s fantastic to have the opportunity to lead the conversation on AI and AI-driven virtual beings at a stage like LEAP, which has become a global window into the state of emerging technology and the most exciting advancements the industry is experiencing. Over the last year, we’ve continued the development of our pioneering AI-driven avatars and have released groundbreaking metaverse features, including a metaverse streaming offering. I am looking forward to showcasing Sensorium’s innovations and exchanging ideas on the future that lies ahead for XR and AI,” added Sasha. Sensorium’s pioneering AI-driven virtual beings represent the pinnacle of conversational AI and machine learning technology, and the company is promoting their integration into the Sensorium Galaxy metaverse, a AAA virtual reality environment with cross-platform accessibility. Here, the extensive capabilities of AI avatars shine through as they engage with users across conversations, interactions and a range of activities, including dance choreographies. Sensorium’s participation in LEAP Tech comes as the company continues expanding its presence in the MENA region, after having opened an office in the United Arab Emirates last year and taken part in some of the Middle East’s largest music conferences, including XP Futures and MDLBEAST’s SOUNDSTORM Festival.
Year In Review: Sensorium In 2022
We ended last year with the promise that we would raise the bar in 2023. And that we did. New beginnings, endings and re-starts, the world has seen it all in 2022, especially in tech. We’re finally talking more about the metaverse, blockchain technology, artificial intelligence and, of course, crypto. The future looks exciting. And Sensorium is leading the charge with the launch of some long-awaited VR and blockchain projects. Here are some of the milestones we reached this year:
Wakatta is now Sensorium Chain
Last year, the Sensorium team embarked on a mission to create an independent layer-two blockchain tailored to the needs of our products and the rapidly growing metaverse arena. Wakatta was designed from scratch to deliver a solid set of technical features, including ultra-low fees, fast transactions, and the possibility to mint traditional and programmable NFTs. At the time, options for ready-made infrastructure solutions with those characteristics weren’t available. The changing nature of the market gave birth to new solutions, better optimized to serve the needs of Web3 environments. After long consideration and a broad-market assessment, Sensorium decided to retake control of the Wakatta project as part of an M&A deal. All initial investors in the Wakatta Seed Round were compensated in full in the context of this operation. Moving forward, we are taking the progress made with Wakatta and leveraging it for the creation of Sensorium Chain — an enterprise network that will provide a seamless experience to all our ecosystem users, turning SENSO into a single-token solution that enables purchases of assets and exclusive content without the need of an additional currency for gas fees. Sensorium Chain is part of a company-wide Web3 strategy to ensure all products are ready to support the exciting applications of this new paradigm. From DAO services and self-sovereign identity to true ownership and token-based payments, we are building a future where users are always at the forefront of innovation and take a leading role in shaping their digital footprint. Stay tuned with the development of Sensorium Chain. Follow us on Twitter, Discord, and Telegram (Chat / Channel)

The event precedes the biggest art week in the United States, Art Basel Miami, where emerging technology will also be in focus. As part of DECENTRAL Sensorium’s Chief Web3 Officer, Alexander Firsov is joining a panel dedicated to exploring industry’s landscape and future opportunities under the topic ’Unlocking the true potential of metaverses’. “It’s hard to imagine another year when the conversation surrounding Web3 technology has been more front and center than in 2022. I believe that this is a recognition of the transformative potential harbored by Web3 and a confirmation that the industry is making strides as we press ahead with next-gen innovation and this generational tech shift. We might be just at the nascent stage, but the advancements seen across blockchain, tokenization, machine learning and the metaverse are deeply promising. As a leader in emerging technology, I look forward to showcasing Sensorium’s Web3 projects to my peers at DECENTRAL,” says Alex Firsov. Key conference themes across this year’s edition of DECENTRAL stages include DeCloud, NFT architecture, Tokenomics, DAO opportunities and crypto regulation, with the programming focusing specifically on conditions to create a multi-chain, cross-chain future, and an inclusive space for the entire Web3 and NFT community to foster a shared learning environment.

Some of the speakers in attendance include Polygon’s Michael Blank, Lightspeed Venture Partners’ Mark Xu and Mark Yusko of Morgan Creek Digital.
Sensorium’s Deputy CEO Is Elected as Executive Board Member of AFEM
Sensorium is proud to announce that its Deputy CEO and Art Director, Sasha Tityanko, has been elected as member of the Executive Board of the Association For Electronic Music (AFEM). In her new role, Sasha will be working together with other board members on matters related to operational decisions and strategic direction, as well as contributing towards efforts undertaken by AFEM to promote and preserve the best of electronic music culture together with a community dedicated to solving issues and developing commercial opportunities.

And as our AI avatars and their uniquely crafted music continue bringing a breath of fresh air to the electronic music scene, my role with AFEM will help highlight the enormous changes we’re currently seeing and why we need to continue pushing the boundaries of what can be achieved”, explains Sasha Tityanko. The Association For Electronic Music’s Executive Board is scheduled to meet on the sidelines of the Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE), one of the world’s most influential gatherings for global electronic music and its industry. Sensorium is gearing up for the public launch of Sensorium Galaxy’s PRISM world, a metaverse dedicated to celebrating the passion for electronic music. Developed hand-in-hand with Yann Pissenem's The Night League, PRISM will be home to out-of-this-world performances delivered by the The Chosen Ones, a select group of chart-topping artists including David Guetta, Carl Cox, Steve Aoki, and others.
Sensorium Registers UAE Branch as Dubai Becomes a Hub for Metaverse Companies
Sensorium, the company behind the industry-leading Sensorium Galaxy metaverse, confirmed its expansion into the United Arab Emirates. The company has registered a new entity and plans to open a new office to expand its global presence further and accelerate the development of metaverse initiatives in the MENA region. The new office, expected to be formally inaugurated in the coming weeks, will be located at Opus tower in the Business Bay district. The iconic building complex was designed by Zaha Hadid Architects. This office will operate under the entity "Sensorium Global Solutions LLC". The branch will undertake a key role in the operational and strategic development of the Sensorium Galaxy brand and other company verticals. With this initiative, Sensorium capitalizes on the ramping metaverse opportunities being offered by the Government of Dubai. Back in July, Sheik Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum, crown prince of Dubai, introduced the Dubai Metaverse Strategy, which aims to add $4 billion to the UAE economy in the next 5 years. This strategy will support 40,000 new jobs and provide vast funding to foster business competitiveness. This framework promises to strengthen Sensorium's position as a leader and speed up the accomplishment of its goals. "Dubai is quickly becoming a global hub for companies in the Metaverse and Web3 space. By establishing a local presence in Dubai, we will be able to collaborate more closely with key players in the space, and establish long-lasting relations in the MENA region. We fully support the initiative of the Government of Dubai, which once again proves to be at the forefront of technological changes and innovation," said Sensorium CEO Vladimir Kedrinsky. Aside from becoming an exciting new destination for employees in the product and business development, marketing, communications and IT areas, the Sensorium office will also include a demo studio where government officials, investors, and strategic partners can experience the full range of our Sensorium Galaxy products with maximum immersiveness. This announcement arrives on the heels of Sensorium's unparalleled success at GITEX GLOBAL 2022, one of the world's biggest and most reputed technology exhibitions. Sensorium was recognized as a Top Disruptor in 2022 following its participation at X-VERSE, a metaverse-dedicated pavilion. A series of interactive activities were organized for attendees to experience the Sensorium Galaxy metaverse in various ways, including one-on-one talks with AI-driven avatars, a metaverse runway show, and in-engine Empyreal Parties.

Sensorium Announces the Development of UNDER - A Pioneering P2E Metaland Platform
Sensorium, the leading tech company behind the Sensorium Galaxy metaverse, is unveiling its latest groundbreaking project dedicated to exploring the wide potentialities of metaverse real estate as an emerging asset class - UNDER. The upcoming UNDER virtual land platform features NFT parcels with built-in game mechanics and an extensive upgrade system tied to original play-to-earn games. UNDER PLAY, the project’s gaming library, is set to include a vast range of casual P2E titles, which will be regularly updated to include latest releases. The Web3 initiative is centered around the virtual land of UNDER – a mystic world in the Sensorium Galaxy metaverse along with the PRISM world, where the world-renowned stars, from David Guetta to Steve Aoki will perform exclusive shows. UNDER is an attraction to metaverse miners given the unique presence of SENSO Aura (SAr), a valuable resource that can be used across the Sensorium Galaxy metaverse or exchanged for fiat money. Sensorium plans to release a total of 100,000 parcels for players. Each plot will feature in-built games enabling the mining of valuable resources. The UNDER experience offers three pathways for users to obtain these resources and get revenue: landless players can rent parcels from Sensorium or other players, while land owners can play themselves or stake / lend their parcels to other users for the revenue share. The more parcels owners stake, the more likely they are to obtain profit through other players’ winnings. The land owners can also upgrade their parcels with new games from UNDER PLAY gaming catalog, thereby making their parcels significantly more attractive to other users. “We recognized a market niche and identified consumer demand for virtual land projects that aim higher than simply offering static land parcels for collecting or re-selling purposes. The fact is that metaverse users are fast becoming savvy and demanding customers. And as we step into the next generation of digital experiences in a Web3 world, we understand that virtual land parcels must have compelling utility, including incredible game mechanics and a sustainable play-to-earn model to support the overall ecosystem. UNDER is Sensorium’s high-up Web3. We are very excited about the project coming to life in the coming months”, explains Alex Kim, Sensorium’s Chief Monetization Officer. UNDER will be leveraging Sensorium’s ecosystem currency SENSO, simplifying the management of land sales, fueling P2E mechanics, and adding further utility to Sensorium’s metaverse currency. With the goal of making UNDER an experience for everyone, Sensorium will be focussing on a roll-out that has an equal appeal to the crypto community and beyond, as the company continues its efforts in helping internet users transition from traditional Web2 gaming platforms into Web3 experiences. Furthermore, UNDER will allow Sensorium’s vast community and fans to contribute and actively interact with the metaverse following its public release. For more information regarding UNDER land and pre-sale opportunities, please contact email@example.com
Sensorium Releases World’s First Metaverse Streaming Channel In Run-Up To Global VR Launch
Today, Sensorium is premiering the world's first in-engine metaverse streaming channel. Designed to introduce people to the vastness of the Sensorium Galaxy metaverse, now only accessible in Beta mode, this 24/7 livestream experience showcases a series of exclusive Empyreal Parties featuring the company's original AI artists. Accessible from any web browser, the first Empyreal Parties take viewers on tour to the Meteor Vortex, a far-off location in the metaverse where AI-driven DJs Natisa Sitar, Kàra Màr, and Ninalis host original performances. Last year, Sensorium pioneered the development of virtual artists powered by artificial intelligence with the debut of Kàra Màr's "Anthropic principle" music album — the first-ever created entirely by an AI-driven character and made available on Apple Music, Spotify, and SoundCloud. The generative music engine behind Sensorium Galaxy virtual artists allows them to create distinctive tracks combining 60+ genres. Aside from their ability to generate high-quality music, all virtual performers combine genetic algorithms and reinforcement learning, enabling them to interact with the audience by establishing surprisingly natural, fully unscripted conversations through the Sensorium Galaxy Mobile App. The company's virtual beings are already regularly featured at some of the world's most influential conferences and festivals — from WebSummit to SXSW and Sonar — and were tested with intricate dialogs by journalists from VentureBeat and PC Gamer. Following the Meteor Vortex event, two other Empyreal Parties will be released, displaying the volcanic surface of PRISM world and the visually appealing interiors of Sensorium Starship. Every new party is an opportunity for people to preview a full-fledged version of the metaverse without needing a VR headset. In addition to the browser version, the audience will soon be able to tune in to Empyreal Parties via Sensorium mobile app. With the global launch of Sensorium Galaxy's VR mode, metaverse users will gain access to the shows of chart-topping artists like David Guetta, Black Coffee, Steve Aoki, and Armin van Buuren among others.
Sensorium Is Developing An Immersive Art Gallery To Elevate Digital Exhibitions In The Metaverse
Art should be accessible to everyone. Art can awaken in people the desire to discover hidden talents and become creators themselves. And the metaverse has the power to make it all possible, finally. As a company that specializes in operating virtual environments, we are excited to confirm the ongoing development of a digital art gallery. The goal of this project is to offer authors — both professionals and amateurs – new tools that endow their creations with immersive properties. Unlike other digital galleries available on the market today, mostly limited to the transfer of physical objects into virtual environments, Sensorium's gallery moves towards understanding the nature of a person's creativity. Sensorium Galaxy aims to contribute to the evolution of the entertainment industry. For example, our first virtual world PRISM, expected for release after the completion of the closed beta, is dedicated to electronic music. This digital space is constantly mutating based on the nature of music tracks. The Sensorium Digital Art Gallery is integrated into our second virtual world — Motion, dedicated to the practices of self-development and self-discovery. The concept of our gallery is not built around the development of digital copies of existing artworks. As of today, there are world leaders in that specific field, and, if necessary, we could collaborate with one of them. Our area of professional interest is englobed by the answers to the following questions: What new opportunities for Humanity could new technologies that allow us to integrate physical values into digital environments bring to the world? What is the meaning of this? What is fundamentally new and valuable that can be achieved by such integrations? Can the ideas of authors from different eras, with the help of digital technologies, become the catalyst for the development of new artistic processes? Our main task is to promote the integration of physical and digital art into the virtual environments of the Sensorium Galaxy metaverse, turning existing art pieces into building materials for the creation of new art or unleashing the creative potential of all users. Our concept for Sensorium's gallery relies on synthesizing several types of art. Visitors of the gallery not only dive deep into artworks but can also run independent experiments with them to create objects of their own, involving fragments of the creative heritage of famous authors. As with every experiential project, we are currently going through a path of reflection and approaching the generation of new value. The first exhibition will feature two internationally acclaimed contemporary artists. Art gallery technologies will complement the exhibitions with immersiveness, bringing users closer to the discovery of the authors' intentions. We will gradually reveal the details of our collaborations as we approach the expected opening date of the art gallery, scheduled for Q4 2022. During the development of this project, we plan to involve our partners in a diverse range of initiatives related to the virtual environments of Sensorium Galaxy. While our first exhibition will first focus on modern art, Sensorium's gallery is being designed for ultimate flexibility. The space will adapt to host any art and create compelling experiences around it.
Sensorium Signs Strategic Partnership with the Humanity 2.0 Foundation for Metaverse and Tech Initiatives
- The public-private partnership aims to extend the availability of the Vatican’s heritage – manuscripts, masterpieces, and academic initiatives – to people, who otherwise won’t be able to experience it. - Sensorium will also become the first metaverse developer to participate in NGO’s NFT and Digital Assets sub-committees to support the creation of best practices for both Humanity 2.0 initiatives and industry ethical leadership. Sensorium, a leading metaverse developer, leveraging the latest AI, VR, and NFT solutions, has announced a strategic partnership with the Humanity 2.0 Foundation. The parties will work on the development of the first-ever VR and NFT gallery hosting Vatican’s art, content, and academic initiatives. Humanity 2.0 is a non-profit organization tackling obstacles to humanity's socio-economic and cultural development through leadership, media, and technology. This global project is chaired by Father Philip Larrey, Dean of Philosophy at the Pope’s University (Pontifical Lateran University) in Vatican City. Sensorium is a global technology company, developing metaverse with the focus on high-quality immersive experiences ranging from ultra-realistic virtual shows performed by chart-topping artists, including David Guetta, Armin van Buuren, Steve Aoki, to interactive games and meditation practices. This vast digital environment is built by veterans of the gaming and VR industries in collaboration with entertainment powerhouses such as Jay-Z’s Roc Nation and Yann Pissenem’s The Night League. The hope for the public-private partnership is to allow the development of NFT-gallery accessible in VR and desktop and featuring renowned masterpieces from the Vatican's collection. > Father Philip Larrey, Chairman of Humanity 2.0: “We look forward to working with Sensorium to explore ways to democratize art, making it more widely available to people around the world regardless of their socio-economic and geographical limitations. The partnership with Sensorium brings this goal a step further and equips us with the latest tech solutions. The Vatican is among the most visited art museums in the world, attracting over 6 million attendees a year. Its collection consists of nearly 800 artworks by 250 international artists, including Michelangelo, Raphael, Marc Chagall, Salvador Dalí, Paul Gauguin, Wassily Kandinsky, Vincent van Gogh, and Pablo Picasso. Founded in the 16th century, the museum hosts invaluable pieces of art history, ranging from renaissance and classicism to post-impressionism and surrealism. Sensorium Galaxy is now in beta and is set to launch later this year. To ensure that it is a truly open experience, the platform will be accessible through the most widely available interfaces. Users can tune in using VR headsets to get a sense of true immersion, use a PC to access an augmented reality experience, or download the mobile application to watch streams, build unique NPCs and communicate with them. About Humanity 2.0 Humanity 2.0 is a Non-Profit, NGO (Non-Government Organization) focused on identifying and removing impediments to human flourishing through the use of technology and human ingenuity. A vehicle for facilitating collaborative ventures between the traditionally siloed public, private and faith-based sectors. Its mission is to identify impediments to human flourishing and then work collaboratively across sectors to remove them by sourcing and scaling bold and innovative solutions. Developed in collaboration with the Dicastery of Promoting Integral Human Development at the Holy See and a consortium of leaders and luminaries, Humanity 2.0 seeks to unite humanity in the common cause of realizing a better world for our children.
Sensorium Launches Global 3D Art Contest
Sensorium is joining forces with Roborace, the company behind the first electric autonomous-car racing series and .ART, the world’s top-level domain created for the international art and culture community, to launch a global art competition dedicated to promoting the transition of the art world into the metaverse. Inspired by the 24 Hours of Le Mans, The 24 Days Of L’.Art presents an opportunity for 3D artists worldwide to exhibit their talents at Roborace — a racing metaverse that combines the excitement of physical racing with artificial intelligence and augmented reality to take motorsports to the next level. The 10 most voted artworks will be added to the AR-enhanced racing tracks of Roborace as both collectibles or obstacles used to increase the difficulty and entertainment of each race. “This event is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for creators to embrace the metaverse, push the boundaries of their imagination and start leveraging the artistic tools that will define the future of art, like virtual and augmented reality. As the metaverse becomes an increasingly structured platform, more creators will want to become a part of it - and The 24 Days Of L’.ART is the perfect starting point for those ready to dive right in,” says Sensorium Deputy CEO, Alex Blagirev. The 24 Days of L’.Art is also being promoted in partnership with Wakatta, an NFT-focused blockchain for the entertainment industry, developed by Sensorium DLT. As explained by Wakatta’s Chief Marketing Officer, Alexander Firsov, the contest is a valuable platform for artists to gain exposure in all-digital environments, anchored by metaverse expertise and experience provided by Roborace and Sensorium. In addition, the event is also aimed at helping dispel reservations surrounding blockchain technology. “Blockchain is having a profound impact on the way artistic pursuits are now unfolding. However, many still seem to think that the technology is hard to use or that it’s beyond access. We don’t believe that to be the case as Wakatta aims to be a fair, transparent, and intuitive blockchain that our partners can always count on. And 24 Days Of L’.ART is the right project to stand behind as we further our goal of delivering access to blockchain technology across the art world,” adds Firsov. Interest artists can submit their works until May 31st, 2022. All details can be found here.
Sensorium Galaxy Hits Over 100K Users In Q1 2022
Users are building up quickly as people from all over the globe prepare for the public launch of Sensorium Galaxy, one of the world’s most anticipated metaverses. Today, we’re excited to confirm that over 100,000 people have already joined the Sensorium Galaxy metaverse as of Q1 2022, mostly as users of our mobile application. “As we move closer to the Web 3.0 paradigm, it’s essential to change our perception of users as consumers and involve them directly in creating the metaverse. To ensure seamless access to the metaverse, we created the Sensorium Galaxy Mobile App — an on-the-go metaverse hub to communicate, play and create,” explains Alex Blagirev, Sensorium’s Deputy CEO. Last week, the SG Mobile App introduced visible changes to its interface, enabling light and dark themes, eliminating pixelation for all assets, and bringing graphics significantly closer to the AAA standard. “The app design is constantly being refined to better adapt to the needs of mobile users and ensure a smooth creative experience. Our goal is to make it easy for everyone with a smartphone to join the Sensorium Galaxy metaverse and co-create it. All AI virtual beings created by users will eventually be available on the VR platform. The SG Mobile App is a true bridge,” adds Blagirev. With the latest update, the app incorporated a renewed character gallery with additional customization options for virtual beings. Users can now change outfit colors for their virtual beings to truly create distinctive looks.

Sensorium Announcement Regarding Recent Events
Dear community, Sensorium is a global company with presence in over ten countries. We believe it's our duty to address your possible concerns as a supporter of our company in the midst of the unprecedented events taking place in Eastern Europe. ### Sensorium Galaxy development on track. The development of Sensorium Galaxy remains uninterrupted. As outlined in previous communications, our metaverse is fast approaching its public launch. Development operations remain on track and have not been compromised by recent political and economic events. From the start, our company opted for a diversified operational model that could address the global needs of our technology and products, and shield them in case of unforeseen circumstances. This structure has proven incredibly resilient in periods of instability and is again helping us bypass these unexpected changes to our schedule. ### SENSO holds strong. We are fully aware of the increasing concerns related to SENSO — our metaverse currency. That said, it's important to highlight that we have always kept our holders' best interests in mind and have used our resources to ensure maximum stability and reliability. Taking into account regulatory risks, SENSO was never associated with our company’s presence in Eastern Europe. Instead, its creation, development, and management are handled exclusively by a separate entity — Sensorium DLT. Sensorium is a technology company focused on reshaping our virtual experiences to create more meaningful, closer relationships between people. Experiences that everyone can enjoy in safe environments regardless of their physical location, background, and preferences. We remain committed to building the future we deserve—one with no borders or conflicts. Despite the difficult and challenging situation the world is currently facing, we hope this message clarifies our position and reassures that Sensorium remains strongly committed to securing its leadership position for each and every product under development.
Year In Review: Sensorium In 2021
2021 was a challenging year. With a global pandemic still out there, we had to work from home, shift priorities, take it slow and Zoom our way through the year. And as the world moved closer than ever to becoming fully digitized, we seized on the opportunities, too. This was the year when we collectively started talking about the real uses of technologies like AR and VR. Then there was also the explosion of NFTs, crypto and Web3. And who could forget Facebook’s very memeable META rebranding? Clearly, lots to unpack. And for Sensorium it was full steam ahead, all the way - We designed the metaverse, partnered with the world’s biggest stars, unveiled a new series of AI-powered virtual beings, launched our App, unleashed a blockchain, went to new places, won awards and made history. Last year, we committed to building the world's most advanced metaverse. In 2021, we made small steps but big advancements. Next year, we are up to the challenge of bringing forward even greater opportunities in the metaverse. But for now, here’s a look back at all that Sensorium accomplished in the last 12 months.
Sensorium Galaxy Makes a Major Step Towards Public Launch, Reveals New Content and Plans for Expanding Closed Beta
Earlier this year, Sensorium launched a closed beta for its metaverse which allowed testers to explore for the first time two virtual worlds — PRISM, dedicated to extraordinary music events, and MOTION, an underwater-themed world focusing on mindfulness and relaxation. As the end of year approaches, Sensorium is unveiling a major series of updates, bringing the metaverse closer to a public launch, including significant content enhancements and the introduction of a multiplayer mode.
Understanding Generative Music - The Tech Behind Virtual DJs
For millennia, music has been a means of expression for humanity. And making it has been an innately human pursuit, a product of creativity and collaboration made to be listened to and appreciated by all of us. This has taken us through different music eras, from analog to electronic and now digital, each unleashing new genres and ways of consuming content. There's certainly no shortage of creativity. The world's largest streaming music platforms feature millions of songs. Spotify alone sees over 60.000 tracks being uploaded everyday, which equals to roughly 22 million tracks per year. Youtube music claims to have two billion monthly users and Apple Music counts over 60 million paid subscribers. To help sense of it all, platforms rely on advanced music curation tools to help sort through the endless options. If you've ever tried putting together the right playlist for jogging or studying, for example, chances are that artificial intelligence lent a helping hand in the process. AI-driven algorithms and big data have become critical in automating music selection, delivering recommendations and helping you find your next favorite track. But is having a panoply of readily available options resulting in better listening experiences and fueling creativity? Most of us end up listening to the same tracks or genres over and over again, anyways.This has made some argue that the model is broken. But perhaps it's just incomplete. We've been listening to music all along. But what if music listened to us? Enter generative AI music services, a step up in the technology ladder - and beginning of a post-digital era in music-making. Generative music blows open a new era of opportunities where melodies are unpredictable, adaptive, unique and impossible to ever be repeated. This means that listening to music will no longer be a linear experience. It will transcend concerts, albums, tracks and time-limited interactions. AI-powered music is allowing music to better adapt to the preference of users as much as it lets them step into the creative process to co-exist and co-produce.
Kàra Màr Becomes The First Social AI-Driven Artist To Release An Album
It’s the first public appearance of Kàra Màr, who, as part of Sensorium Galaxy metaverse, will perform ever-changing generative music along with world-famous DJs like David Guetta, Carl Cox, and Armin van Buuren. Apart from performing, Kàra Màr will also focus on interacting with fans, pioneering the concept of Social AI-driven artists. When offstage, Kàra Màr, as well as other Sensorium’s AI-driven artists, will be permanently available to communicate with fans via text chats and video calls in Sensorium Galaxy mobile app. Sensorium virtual artists have been in development since last November. While Mubert’s proprietary technology empowered these creatures to generate a constant flow of ever-changing music, Sensorium has equipped them with virtual bodies, intelligence, and social skills. Driven by a unique combination of genetic AI and reinforcement learning, Sensorium’s virtual DJs are able to support unscripted thought-provoking conversations. They can talk for hours without losing track of context and possess both long-term and short-term memory. What’s more, the personalities of these virtual beings constantly evolve through interactions with users. This process unfolds naturally and unpredictably without any interference from developers. “Increasingly more creators embrace direct communications with their fans via live streams on Instagram and other channels. We take this a step further by allowing fans to dive deeper into the interactions with their favorite artists. AI-driven Social Artists are able to dedicate quality time to every single fan, listening, responding, and adapting to their individual preferences, thereby ushering in a new era in music,” says Sasha Tityanko, Deputy CEO at Sensorium. Each one of Sensorium’s Social Artists has its own signature performance style and a distinct personality based on a virtual biography. Kàra Màr, for instance, is a non-binary AI-researcher and techno DJ from Berlin, bringing their fascination for AI to all musical productions. The name of their first album “Anthropic principle” reflects the main concept behind it, alluding to the idea that the universe needs an observer to exist. In their music Kàra Màr reinterprets this principle from a VR perspective, raising the question “what if an AI is an observer of the metaverse?”. In a suite of 8 pieces, Kàra Màr weaves a canvas out of abstract questions. The restless artificial mind keeps on asking — what do you, people, feel listening to my music? You created me, but now I am able to initiate research about you. It is an experiment on humanity by AI. Paul Zgordan, Music Director at Mubert: “Mubert was responsible for creating a unique musical experience. We fulfilled one of our main tasks: nurturing a connection between the crowd and the DJ, so the artist’s performance corresponds to the audience’s mood on the dancefloor. Now we are excited to experiment and improve our product further using DJs-users interactions in the metaverse as an inspiration”. Fans will soon be able to experience Kàra Màr’s performances live in PRISM – one of Sensorium Galaxy’s virtual worlds dedicated to extraordinary music events. Sensorium Galaxy is scheduled to go live in several months, while the Sensorium app is already available for download.
Award-winning DJ Nina Kraviz Announces Series of VR-Shows in Sensorium Galaxy
Nina Kraviz, the world-renowned electronic music artist, has announced she is set to debut with exclusive VR-sets in the Sensorium Galaxy metaverse. Nina Kraviz is one of the most successful DJs of all time. "DJ of the Year 2017" by Mixmag, proclaimed producer, singer and the founder of two record labels – trip and Galaxiid – in 2018 alone she participated in 35 of the world's largest festivals in addition to performing at the best underground clubs. Nina's distinct music style regularly gets venues packed, reflecting the unique combination of the artist's strong personality with sensuality and her constant pursuit to evoke the deepest feelings. In search of inspirational sounds, she has performed at the world's most unusual locations including the Eiffel Tower and Great Wall of China. Earlier this year she released "Skyscrapers," the first single from her highly anticipated upcoming album. The second single "This Time," will see the light of day on 26 November. Her next stop is PRISM – a virtual world within Sensorium Galaxy dedicated to high-end music events. > Nina Kraviz: "I always thought of music as a dynamic essence, with the same track being perceived differently at various points of time. In PRISM my sets will be in full harmony with virtual venues, which constantly evolve in response to the sound frequencies and beats. I'm very excited to see what I can create in this immersive space and I hope the techno fans will find this creative endeavour as fascinating as I do." Nina becomes the 10th artist to reveal participation in Sensorium Galaxy, joining such icons of electronic music as Steve Aoki, Armin van Buuren, David Guetta, and Charlotte de Witte among others. Sensorium Galaxy is designed to be a social platform at its core. While attending the shows, the users will be able to meet and interact with other concert-goers from around the world, befriend smart AI-driven virtual beings and get as close to performing artists as one can imagine. > Sasha Tityanko, Deputy CEO at Sensorium: "Whether performing in authentic underground clubs or massive music festivals across the world, Nina creates the intimate connection between herself and the audience, appealing to the deepest feelings. In Sensorium Galaxy she will be able to further nurture this connection and put her extraordinary talent into the virtual shows that evoke positive energy. We are very happy to welcome Nina on board and can't wait for her first virtual sets." Sensorium Galaxy is now in beta and is set to launch later in 2021. Users from all around the world will be able to tune to Nina Kraviz's shows by wearing VR headset, using PCs, or simply by streaming with their phones or Macs.
Sensorium and Electronic Music Legend Jean-Michel Jarre Partner Up To Co-create A Virtual World And Exclusive Shows
Sensorium, the company behind the Sensorium Galaxy digital metaverse, has partnered with Guinness record holder, composer, and producer Jean-Michel Jarre. The 'godfather of electronic music' – known as a tech-tamer constantly pushing the boundaries of music and visual effects – is now embracing a new challenge of creating an immersive sound environment as well as delivering exclusive VR shows. As a co-creator of Motion, Jarre will be sound engineering this virtual world dedicated to mindfulness, helping build an immersive sonic environment that conveys a sense of presence through highly engaging visuals and sound. Taking the shape of a mysterious underwater land, Motion lets users reinvigorate their mind and spirit with meditation practices and relaxing dance performances. By permeating this environment with immersive sounds, carefully composed through the use of binaural beats and natural sounds, Jean-Michel Jarre will help deliver sonic messages for the mind and soul. Sasha Tityanko, Deputy CEO at Sensorium: "Musicians performing in VR spaces are no longer a novelty. We see it as the first step in exploring the true potential of entertainment in VR. Eventually, artists will become the co-creators of the VR world, and this partnership is the first example of such a collaboration. Jean-Michel is an inspiring and leading figure in music, and the perfect match for Sensorium Galaxy. Whether it's a virtual concert in Notre Dame or a new track generated by his AI-driven app, Jarre never fails to surprise with his visionary creativity. This time won't be an exception". Apart from co-creation of the Motion world, Jean-Michel Jarre will also host exclusive VR shows within Sensorium Galaxy, performing his latest work as well as iconic tracks. Jean-Michel Jarre: "VR is a new form of art, still on the verge of a full-scale bloom & boom. To unveil the true potential of technology and create worlds that people can fall in love with, artists need to work hand-in-hand with the best tech companies. Sensorium shares this vision, and our partnership offers an exciting opportunity to explore the interactions of humans and art in virtual reality. It's also a way for me to share created-by-me worlds and performances not only with contemporary fans around the world, but also with the future generations". Jean-Michel Jarre's track record in innovation has cemented his name as one of the music industry's biggest players. Throughout his career, this iconic performer has sold more than 85 million albums, while his Moscow performance in 1997 attracted a record-breaking live audience of 3.5 million people. His appearance in VR has witnessed the same level of success. The artist's last New Year's performance inside the virtual Notre-Dame Cathedral gathered 75 million online and TV viewers. With Sensorium Galaxy, Jean-Michel Jarre is set to impress once more. Sensorium Galaxy is a digital metaverse featuring immersive high-end events and experiences. In this alternate reality, users can reinvent themselves, explore vast virtual worlds filled with activities, ranging from games to mediation practices, socialize with others and interact with their favorite artists. It's been developed by veterans of the gaming and VR industries in partnership with entertainment powerhouses such as Jay-Z's Roc Nation and Yann Pissenem's The Night League. Chart-topping artists, like David Guetta, Armin van Buuren, Eric Prydz, and others have already confirmed exclusive shows. To ensure that Sensorium Galaxy is a truly open experience, the platform will be accessible through the most widely available interfaces. Users can tune in using VR headsets to get a sense of true immersion, use a PC to access augmented reality experiences or download the mobile application to watch streams, build unique NPCs and communicate with them.
Award-winning DJ and Producer Steve Aoki Joins Sensorium Galaxy Metaverse
Grammy-nominated electronic music DJ and Producer Steve Aoki is joining Sensorium Galaxy — a digital metaverse featuring immersive high-end events and experiences. Aoki is set to create a series of exclusive shows in PRISM – a futuristic world within Sensorium Galaxy, where the environment transforms under the influence of sound frequencies. The artist will be performing in the form of a photorealistic avatar, produced using state-of-the-art motion capture and 3D scanning technologies. Counting over 4 billion music streams to his name, Steve Aoki is a true visionary and one of the most in-demand entertainers in the world. Regularly ranked within the world’s top-10 DJs and loved by the audience for high-impact, experiential live performances, he holds the Guinness World Record as most-traveled musician for playing 168 shows in 41 countries within one year. A true renaissance man, Steve Aoki is also a fashion designer, author and entrepreneur known for his fascination with technology and sci-fi. In 2012, he founded THE AOKI FOUNDATION, which primarily supports organizations in the field of brain science research with a specific focus on regenerative medicine and brain preservation. Bringing these themes into his shows and music, Aoki dedicated a series of albums – Neon Future – to human relationships with machines, with the latest album Neon Future IV exploring the topics of biotechnology and digital immortality. Steve Aoki: “Metaverse makes an ideal playground to explore human interaction with technology. In Sensorium Galaxy, the social mechanics of meeting and befriending other concert-goers closely intervene with an AI-enabled ever-changing environment. This unlocks a totally new level of entertainment for both the artist and the audience. I’m thrilled to share with fans this immersive experience on the intersection of music and sci-fi”. Aside from creating virtual shows for PRISM, Steve Aoki is also being featured in Sensorium Galaxy’s international reveal campaign ‘The Chosen Ones’. His episode, premiering today, was shot in Los Angeles earlier this year by Academy award-winning studio The Mill and acclaimed creative agency High Scream. It features Aoki encountering the massive portal that transfers the chosen artists from Earth straight to Sensorium Galaxy’s PRISM world.
Sensorium Showcases Latest Metaverse & Blockchain Innovations At GITEX 2021
The Sensorium team continues to make its way into the global tech scene, now at GITEX Technology Week — the most well-known IT exhibition in the Persian Gulf region. Our company took part in this 41st edition of the event (October 17–21) with a booth in Hall 4 at the Dubai World Trade Center, a sector dedicated to organizations in the Artificial Intelligence field. Sensorium shared the conference floor with some of the world’s most powerful brands like Microsoft, Amazon Web Services, Huawei, and others. At this week-long event, Sensorium showcased two of its major developments: the Sensorium Galaxy metaverse and the recently launched entertainment-focused blockchain Wakatta. This conference was an opportunity to establish connections with industry and government leaders, potentially opening new exciting paths for collaborations. First launched in 1981, GITEX has become the biggest and most prestigious tech conference in the Middle East, bringing together the key players in the fields of AI, 5G, Cloud, BigData, Cybersecurity, Blockchain, Quantum Computing, and many more.
Sensorium Joins Blockchain Game Alliance
Sensorium is officially joining the Blockchain Game Alliance, one of the world's largest associations committed to promoting blockchain and non-fungible tokens (NFTs) within the gaming industry. With this, Sensorium will be able to engage with BGA's vast network of members and take part in the alliance's numerous initiatives aimed at spreading awareness about blockchain technologies and encouraging widespread adoption. "It's exciting to be a part of the BGA and join forces with this community to advance blockchain-based projects and highlight the potential brought on by the technology. As Sensorium also continues exploring not only blockchain but the vast opportunities of NFTs, including upgradable options, becoming a part of this alliance is the right step forward for us and we hope to bring a great contribution to it, too", said Alex Blagirev, Deputy CEO of Sensorium. The membership comes on the back of the recent launch of Wakatta, an NFT-focused blockchain developed by Sensorium DLT. Wakatta has become one of the first platforms to offer a new range of innovative NFTs that are upgradable, time-limited, and non-hashed. Each of these token classes was designed to drive digital impact across both digital and real-life environments, in particular in the entertainment industry. "Looking at just how diverse and inclusive BGA's membership is, it's clear that we can benefit greatly from sharing knowledge, collaborating and developing new models for NFTs in particular. This is the type of open forum that will shape the next generation of blockchain", added Blagirev. BGA membership has more than doubled this year alone, and members include developers, NFT marketplaces, gaming partners, including leading blockchain experts currently on the alliance's board like BITKRAFT's Piers Kicks, The Sandbox co-founder Sebastien Borget and Ubisoft's Nicolas Pouard.
Sensorium Galaxy Will Run On Wakatta Blockchain: Here’s Why
Hi everyone! We wanted to bring you up to speed on a major update. Today, we're excited to confirm that Sensorium Galaxy will be migrating to the Wakatta blockchain. This is a move that we've been planning for some time, but it’s now becoming a reality with the recent launch of Wakatta, an NFT and entertainment-focused blockchain. At the moment, the Sensorium Galaxy metaverse relies on Ethereum to power its in-platform currency, SENSO. This token will be at the center of the metaverse's virtual economy once it is launched in the coming months, and will be used to mint NFTs, support transactions and exchanges, unlock experiences, tickets and events, among other functionalities. We developed SENSO to ensure that Sensorium Galaxy has a thriving and fair economy, where users can expect transparency and reliability at all times. But looking at how the crypto market has evolved this past year, it became clear that the rapid increase in ETH prices (and other problems associated with Ethereum like congestion), would affect our mission of building a welcoming metaverse. That is why we focused on building a solution that would better fit the needs of an entertainment-based platform like Sensorium Galaxy.
Sensorium App Is Here: Join The Beta Test
The wait was long, but it’s finally here. Today, we’re excited to introduce the beta version of the Sensorium App — a mobile application that empowers you with advanced AI and AR tools to create intelligent virtual beings capable of elevating your social life. Since its inception, Sensorium Galaxy has been focused on developing an inclusive metaverse that leaves no one behind when it comes to platform accessibility. The Sensorium App is a first step in building a cross-platform, highly immersive, entertainment-filled alternate universe. Following our beta test stage, we will be adding new features to the Sensorium App, turning it into a true mobile gateway to our soon-to-come metaverse. “We think of the Sensorium App as a toolkit that will enhance the digital experiences of Sensorium Galaxy participants and give everyone an opportunity to get creative with artificial intelligence in a super intuitive and very amusing way. With a single app, anyone can start building autonomous virtual beings with whom it’s possible to chat on literally any topic and hang out anytime. Sensorium App opens a new chapter in our social lives,” explains Daniil Solopov, Sensorium Mobile Product Director. From a technological standpoint, Sensorium’s Chief Technology Officer Sergey Drozdkov highlights the synergy achieved by combining Google’s UI toolkit Flutter with Unity’s endless creative possibilities. “Our application leverages bleeding-edge technologies to unleash the metaverse experience of Sensorium Galaxy on your phone. This is achieved through two key technological assets - artificial intelligence and augmented reality. AI enables smart, immersive, and human-like exchanges, while AR brings together the best out of the real world and the immense opportunities of virtual settings. By combining both, we got the Sensorium App. Our application was developed on top of leading cross-platform frameworks, which translates into a seamless experience on both Android and iOS.”

As one of Belgium’s most exciting musical talents, de Witte’s meteoric rise has seen her go from performing in the underground techno scene to headlining the world’s most renowned music festivals, with her trademark stripped, hard-hitting beats fast becoming a firm-favourite amongst electronic music fans around the globe. Growing up with Belgium’s rich history of electronic music, de Witte first caught the ears of some of the industry’s biggest festivals in her teens, landing sets at festivals including Dour, I Love Techno, Pukkelpop and Tomorrowland. Since that time, she’s gone on to headline stages around the globe, grace the covers of many influential music magazines and even found time to launch her hugely successful label and party concept KNTXT. Charlotte de Witte: “Whether DJ’ing or producing, I am always searching for new ways to use my creativity and tap into deeper layers of emotion in electronic music. I want people to remember the experience after the lights go down. Working with Sensorium Galaxy is a great opportunity to deliver a completely new kind of show with the same passion I try to bring to all my IRL concerts.” De Witte will perform in the PRISM world - a unique location within Sensorium Galaxy with supernatural properties, where the environment transforms under the influence of sound frequencies.

This vast entertainment-focused metaverse consists of multiple virtual worlds, each of which features a particular type of content. High-caliber performers like David Guetta, Carl Cox, Armin van Buuren, and Black Coffee are among the first lineup of artists confirmed for PRISM — a world dedicated to all sorts of musical expressions. In a similar fashion to in-game currencies, SENSO is used for all value transactions within the ecosystem. Participants use these tokens to access shows of their favorite artists on the platform, subscribe to premium content, customize their avatars, upgrade features, issue NFTs, as well as execute other actions.

His bold and ambitious concerts are known for pushing the limits of music and technology to create experiences that get the entire dance world talking, something that aligns perfectly with Sensorium Galaxy’s vision for music experiences.
