META [AV Performance | Game simulation and live soundtrack]
CLON x NWRMNTC
META is an immersive audio-visual journey into future and unknown worlds, performed live as a game simulation by CLON with a live soundtrack by NWRMNTC.
Inspired by sci-fi narratives and cyberpunk aesthetics, the show invites the audience to explore fictional scenarios depicting interconnected utopian and dystopian worlds. The performance is presented as a view in first person, allowing the public to feel totally immersed in the simulated game and its narrative, like a transient traveler of the virtual space.
During the show, CLON conducts a live journey through a speculative world composed of 5 scenes created using video game tools and techniques. Elements from the physical realm derive into a computer simulated world which exists outside our current systems and rites, blurring the perception of reality. In parallel, the soundtrack is composed and scored live by NWRMNTC featuring cinematic atmospheres with dark ambiences, tribal rhythms and digitally processed voices, which create a mystic palette of imaginary worlds.
META is a new collaborative project born during a residency in Iceland and developed by the artists in London.
