Vizmoo is looking to partner with a music educator with interest in dance, movement and gaming. At Vizmoo, we’re using the latest VR technology to create deeply engaging music and dance games for people to experience music and movement in novel ways, leading to new understanding of their bodies and selves. We’re currently developing Groove Catcher, a VR ’rhythm and flow’ game that’s been getting a great response from early players.
Feedback from educators who’ve tried the game has inspired us to develop tools and curriculum for education audiences. Videos of the game are available on vizmoo.com (and a free demo is available on Steam for VR users). We’re looking to partner with a music/dance/movement educator to develop and test curriculum for the game.
A possible starting point would be to work with principles from Dalcroze Eurhythmics. Our ideal partner has an advanced degree and teaching experience in music or dance education, as well as experience researching and writing grants for education projects. We are open to remote partnering, but someone in the greater Philadelphia region would be best for eventual in-person testing and development.
Compensation for the position is dependent on helping to secure a grant to develop and start testing the curriculum, or possibly available from the next round of private funding we're seeking. We're also open to considering sharing equity in the company for a longer-term partner at some point.
The time commitment will vary based on the complexity of what we decide together to undertake. Vizmoo is a startup company in the Philadelphia area, focused on developing engaging VR games and experiences based in music and dance. Co-founders Michael Stauffer and Bill DeHaven have been inspired to work in this realm by their life-long interests and studies in music, dance and technology.
