Game simulation and live soundtrack
2019 (on going)
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 Ana Quiroga.
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 Ana Quiroga featuring cinematic atmospheres with dark ambiences, tribal rhythms and digitally processed voices, which create a mystic palette of imaginary worlds.
CLON is Estela Oliva’s hybrid art project, in which she explores science fiction and speculative scenarios, using new media to blend virtual and physical worlds.
META is a new collaborative project born during a residency in Iceland and developed by the artists in London. The show has been presented at ADAF (2021), Mieres Auditoriu Teodoro Cuesta (2021), MUTEK Montréal (2019), Sónar Hong Kong (2019), MUTEK Buenos Aires (2019), Amplify (Espacio Fundación Telefónica, Lima, 2019), MIRA Festival (Barcelona, 2019), Inmersiva (CDD de Mexico, 2019), She Makes Noise (Madrid, 2019), Mirage Festival (Lyon, 2019) and KEROXEN (Tenerife, 2018)
