VIDEO: Now you can ”Step Inside” your Favorite Music thanks to Google VR

What if you could step inside a song? Inside Music is a simple experiment that explores that idea. Google has teamed up with popular podcast Song Exploder to offer music lovers a new way to see and hear their favorite music, the experiment currently featuring the music of Phoenix, Natalia Lafourcade, Perfume Genius, Alarm Will Sound, Clipping, and Ibeyi.

The interactive experiment is inspired by the way the Song Exploder podcast invites artists to dissect their most famous songs and explain to listeners how each instrument comes together to create the final product. The experiment lets you explore layers of music all around you, using spatial audio to understand how a piece of music is composed. You can even turn layers on and off, letting you hear the individual pieces of a song in a new way.

Google has open-sourced the code so that you can see what it’s like to step inside of your own music:
