A four-dimensional dome in Long Island City offers busy New Yorkers an intimate concert-going experience that stimulates every sense using high-tech integrations

XIX Collective is perhaps the epitome of today’s trends in tech-based, experiential retail. Designed as a getaway from the city, the full sensory installation uses innovative 4D technology to immerse visitors in a next-gen, transportive concert experience.

The igloo-like dome captures each sense through integrated, high-tech features, including 360-degree projections, 7.1 surround-sound speakers, wind makers, scent diffusers and haptic system. A special vibrating platform is built into the floor, where visitors are invited to lie down to experience the sensation of subsonic music—audio that goes below human hearing.

Creator Timothy Leung emphasizes his intent for collaboration, offering his multisensory platform as a shared space for co-creation contrary to its counterparts in interactive entertainment, such as virtual reality and its anti-social aspects.
