About Us

Mixthesia is an exploratory project focused on discovering intuitive interactions in VR that introduce novice musicians to sound mixing tools and concepts. Sound mixing is an arcane craft performed in closed-off rooms for extended periods of time through a complex interface. By prototyping different visualizations and interactions, the project aims to demystify the craft of sound mixing by avoiding the complex traditional interface.
