Digital artist and curator Estela Oliva and NWRMNTC (the solo project of musician and sound designer Ana Quiroga, who was half of the influential duo LCC) are premiering a new project on Saturday, 10th November 2018, at KEROXEN Festival Tenerife.
Both artists are presenting META, an immersive audio-visual journey into future and unknown worlds. Inspired by sci-fi narratives and cyberpunk aesthetics, the show invites the audience to navigate through fictional scenarios depicting interconnected utopian and dystopian worlds.
In this performance, Clon will introduce a virtual space created with 3D animated scenes and scanned models from the physical world, developing a narrative between realities. The soundtrack, composed and scored live by NWRMNTC, features cinematic atmospheres with ambient dark sounds and digitally processed voices. META is a new collaborative project born during a residency in Iceland and developed by the 2 artists in London.
With the current resurfaced general interest in SciFi and Cyberpunk, there’s an upcoming video game (Cyberpunk 2077, a revised version of the tabletop game Cyberpunk 202o), recent TV series (Altered Carbon) and revisions of Blade Runner (Raf Simons-inspired part of his SS18 collection on replicant aesthetics) we hope META brings a fresh aesthetic to the genre.
