• What is SoundSelf?

    SoundSelf is an ecstatic meditation experience for PC.
     

    You use your voice to explore a hypnotic world of sounds and visuals that feel like they are emerging directly from your body. Each tone will navigate you through strobing tunnels-of-light, impossible shapes, and into a meditative trance.

     

    The result is an elegant symmetry of image, sound and body that takes advantage of loopholes in the way you perceive to facilitate a new experience of yourself and your world.

     

    Every play-through is unique, and lasts between 15 minutes and an hour.

  • FAQ

    What is SoundSelf?

    Soundself is an interactive shortcut to meditation. It’s a psychedelic journey to the center of the self.

    Is this even a Game?

    SoundSelf is a deeply immersive and interactive experience. We consider it a game, and it uses all the trance-inducing techniques of gaming technology! But there are no points or boss battles. Instead, SoundSelf's mechanics invite you into a deep state of surrender.

    Do I need a VR Headset?

    No! With a little attention to space, SoundSelf can be an amazing experience on a screen or projector. We recommend playing in the darkness, with headphones, and in a comfortable reclined position.

    Do I need a Microphone?

    Yes, but the quality of the microphone is unimportant. A simple webcam microphone is fine. VR users almost always already have a microphone attached to the headset.

    Is it like Psychedelics?

    A pilot study has demonstrated that for many players, SoundSelf:

    • Produces  states of oneness with similar reliability to psilocybin.
    • Reduces activity in the parts of the brain associated with self-identification.
    • Increases positive mood.

    What Inspired SoundSelf?

    SoundSelf was inspired by a Group Ohm on LSD. It became an installation at Burning Man in 2013. Seven years of development later, it’s being released as a video game.

    Psychedelic states have had a profound impact on a small fraction of people, we want to make these states available to everyone.
