The tech giants partner with Song exploder, a podcast where artists take apart their songs
The Web Virtual Reality (Web VR) experiment features musicians who narrate how their song was made, as the users also get the opportunity to take the song apart and hear each individual piece of the song.
The website which currently has six songs from artists Phoenix, Perfume Genius, Natalia Lafourcade, Ibeyi, Alarm Will Sound andClipping.
The service was created with WebVR, and can be explored on a laptop, phone or a VR headset. It uses a technique called spatial audio to hear layers of music start playing around you.
It works on the website, so no need to install anything. Just log on to the site and select a song, then break down each component in layers of drums, synth, vocals, etc turning them on and off as you wish.
