Miro Shot on BBC News

Following our three day residency at the Institute of Modern Art in Amsterdam, the BBC have published an article, featuring a dissection of the experience and discussing how ‘virtual reality may change your life’. Many thanks to Vincent Dowd for coming to the show and writing the piece.

 

A second collaboration with Junction 2 Festival, London

It was a pleasure to be invited back to Junction 2 Festival this year. London’s most exciting techno festival situated in the shadow of the M4 returned for it’s second year, curated by good friends LWE, in collaboration with Drumcode, The Hydra and Into the Woods.

I spent the day recording sounds in and around the festival, which I’ll be building into a soundtrack to the after show video later this year. Watch last year’s below, in the meantime.

Grayson Perry: Divided Britain – Channel 4 Broadcast Date

Grayson Perry: Divided Britain will be broadcast on Channel 4 on Tuesday 30th May, 9pm. It was great to have been commissioned by Swan Films to compose another score for Grayson. More about the film here.

 

“Perry’s television programmes are great because they dare to reach conclusions that rise to artistic statements. Five Stars”

Miro Shot first public shows
Three day residency at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Amsterdam

From the 11-14th May, we will be playing our first Miro Shot public shows at CBK, Amsterdam. The three day residency will be the debut of our collective’s new show, CONTENT – a unique multi-sensory live VR and Mixed Reality concert.

 

The collective is a collaboration of artists from multiple fields, including musicians, filmmakers, photographers, illustrators and a scent artist.

 

NRG Magazine have released this article:

 

During the concert, a live band will play a unique piece of music to their audience through VR headsets. MIRO SHOT promises to embrace the participants in a multi-sensory experience, controlling parameters such as the wind, temperature, and even touch, offering people to switch between the real and the alternated virtual worlds. This way, for instance, when seeing a frozen forest, the viewer will feel the real cold and will be able to smell the real scent of the trees. Ute Kohlman, artistic director of CBK: “What’s really unique is that the audience will become a member of the collective. Visitors are allowed to participate and affect the artwork and music.

CBK Amsterdam works with artists, curators, and musicians from around the world to present unique exhibitions and events. After playing in Amsterdam on May 12-14, MIRO SHOT will take their performance to London, Paris, and Berlin, among other cities.
