Concerts in the Time of COVID: Sleek Oda Speakers Bring Live Music to Your Home

Via an ongoing schedule of live performances, broadcast exclusively through the device.

As the coronavirus pandemic continues to render live concerts unsafe, the newly launched Oda speakers offer an innovative solution for those vying to attend in-person gigs. Ideated in 2016, long before the pandemic, Oda was developed as a way for musicians to perform for their fans remotely, a novel idea that would provide creatives with a more sustainable revenue stream. “The intention was never to replace touring or live music, but quite the contrary: the dream was always to bring more live music into our lives,” Oda founder Nick Dangerfield explained.

Sleekly designed, the speakers are comprised of two square panels made of wood, glass, steel and cotton. Meticulously tuned by acoustician Benjamin Zenker and designer Perry Brandston, the Oda recreates the immersive acoustics of live music for a dynamic experience. Once purchased alongside a seasonal membership fee, the speakers provide access to an ongoing schedule of live performances by artists — including Arca, Zsela and Madlib — only accessible through the Oda. As long the device is plugged in, it will broadcast performances in real-time, creating a continuous stream of live music. The Oda can also connect to popular music apps such as Spotify and Apple Music.

The Oda is available for pre-order at the Oda website. For a limited time, the speakers are priced at $299 USD plus a seasonal membership fee of $79 USD for three months.
