Lambchild Superstar

Making Music in the Menagerie of the Holy Cow

Lambchild Superstar is a 6dof VR experience where you play as a lamb, manipulating fantastical machines run by other animals in order to make music. Lemmings run the drum machine, jumping between platforms to make sounds. Pangolins roll out of a tube, where they hit synth pads. Octopuses play the guitar. The Holy Cow farts out a solo as you pull its tail. Lambchild Superstar premiered at Tribeca 2018. It is a joint production between Within, OK GO, and Oculus.

I helped create all of the posters and PR imagery. I also made various icons and 2D screens that were used inside of the VR experience itself.



Information Screens

These screens appeared in a screen that a bird was carrying around while following you. They were designed to look like old CRTV screens. I created all the screens and illustrations shown below.

Basic instructions

Instructions that teach you how to use the experience. They are backed up by a narrator who describes all the actions verbally.

Cowossilator Machine

One of the instruments that you can play is the Cowossilator. It's a solo machine where you yank the cow's tail to play a solo. The sound that comes out depends on the direction and distance of your pull on its tail.

Singing and Lyrics Machine

Another instrument is the singing and lyrics machine. This machine works by helping you generate some lyrics, allowing you to record your vocals, and then helping your singing talent by allowing you to tweak the pitch and add melodies.

Saving a Song Flow

This flow shows how to save a song that you've created while in the experience.
