deadmau5 Teases CG Renderings Of Cube V2 Stage Concept

If she doesn’t remember deadmau5‘ Cube as his all-time greatest stage show concept, she’s too young for you, bro.

The decorated progressive house icon has turned out no shortage of visual masterpieces to accompany his live performances, but none as widely celebrated as the Cube – and he’s now given his fans a first look at its long-awaited reincarnation.

Instead of using a more industry standard computer-aided drafting (CAD) drawing software, deadmau5 used the Unreal Engine – which was used to by development teams to design games like Rune, Bioshock and Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell. As evidenced by the CG rendering videos deadmau5 posted to Instagram though, the software has real-world applications as well.

 

Prototyping cubev2 in VR with Unreal. Possibly the coolest shit in the world.

deadmau5 also revealed that the geodesic cage will no longer accompany him onstage and the Cube V2 will be finished in another couple of weeks. He did mention that because of the design process, the prospect of watching one of his stage shows in virtual reality might not be all that far down the road.

In the meantime, deadmau5 still has an Eric Prydz collaboration in the works and a new studio album on the backburner. Suffice to say, it’s a good time to be a fan of iconic producer.
