Sofi Tukker Virtual World Visuals
Concert visuals created for Sofi Tukker the dynamic EDM duo from New York City, performed live at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival on April 22, 2023, at the Empire Polo Club in Indio. The duo, consisting of Sophie Hawley-Weld and Tucker Halpern, delivered an electrifying 55-minute set that challenged Coachella attendees to beat the energy of the audience who saw them perform the night before in Mexico City via a scoring game developed by Xitelabs. The 55 minute show featured our cinematic visuals generated in real time using cutting edge game engine technology designed by Epic Games. We built and integrated existing works into a new super fun world. A rich, vibrant natural world with jellyfish, giraffe, alligators and an underwater world with alien avatar inspired plants and sea life.
CMH Design lead by Cassady Halloran reached out to Epic Games to help find an expert in live XR for the upcoming Sofi Tukker performances using their new scenic and performance designs. Given Xitelabs’ wealth of live XR music performances, running in engine, Xite was the perfect candidate. The Sofi Tukker team and their Artist Management, Punk Da Funk wanted us to create a diverse and highly performable 3D world for Coachella, Red Rocks and beyond on a very tight time table. Utilizing Unreal Engine 5.1, blender and mode3 on the grand MA Xitelabs we delivered a complete virtual world in under 1 month.
