MULTIVERSE: DEMARAE prepares to showcase Birmingham's very own GTA! - 25.08.2022
Have you been gripped by the development of the Metaverse? The new digital age that we are entering is growing at a rapid rate, and next Thursday you can get a taste for how live music can connect with the digital world through kaleidoscopic interactive projections.
At the CFC Studios in Birmingham, as part of Gallery 37, DEMARARE presents a part digital art exhibition, part music showcase. Aiming to submerge its audience into a digital space in which guests will have the chance to control art projections using a Playstation controller throughout the course of the night, exploring the connection between physical and virtual art.
A series of projections, including this forest-scape, has been built by the curator of Multiverse, world-building artist and musician DEMARAE. The visuals will interact and sync with the sounds of a line-up of Birmingham's up and coming musical talent crossing hip-hop, R&B, and Amapiano genres, including Commonwealth Games opening ceremony singer Indigo Marshall, musician Tarju Le’Sano, singer-songwriter ReRe, lyricist CreezOn, artist Shenâi, rapper Yonko Leck, singer-songwriter Odd Priest, as well as DJ sets by Rhexis and more.
Inspired by science fiction and retrofuturism, DEMARAE creates reflections of alternative realities in a stylised way, allowing players to experience new and familiar environments and take on adventures, both virtually and sonically. His latest visual, a take on how the game GTA (Grand Theft Auto) might look if based in Birmingham has taken Twitter by storm. The artist has digitally built parts of Birmingham, and these areas will be playable at ‘Multiverse’ with the use of a Playstation controller.
Unsurprisingly the event has now sold out, but if there are any further developments, or additional dates then stay locked in with CGuk for your chance to attend and take part in this game changing event.
