CBK Amsterdam, the Dutch center for contemporary art housing a collection of more than 4500 art works, will host the worldwide premiere of CONTENT, a performance described by the organizers as “a unique multi-sensory live VR and Mixed Reality concert” by the international collective MIRO SHOT.
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.
Entrance to CONTENT by MIRO SHOT is free with a reservation: http://www.miroshot.com/
