First generation Gear VR games are a bit of a mix bag right now. Most look like Kinect games you’d grow bored of in minutes and then there’s some more interesting uses of the virtual reality technology like Playhead.

Made by indie developer Innerspace VR, this music-creating title involves moving through a tunnel using the head tracking to select different sound sources scattered through the environment. Stripping songs to individual notes, you can then remix them to create an entirely different soundtrack.

It’s one of the trippiest experiences on the Gear VR, and can feel a little nauseating if you are playing for a while, but this is one of the most creative and original uses so far that we’ve experienced on Samsung’s virtual reality headset.
