NAXS corp & Meuko! Meuko! Ghost Island: Innervision
Taiwanese experimental music producer and performer Meuko! Meuko! collaborates with
fellow Taipei-based multimedia performance collective NAXS Corp. to create the online VR installation and AV show Ghost Island: Innervision.
Working from the live project Ghost Island, that made the opening performance for Transmediale (DE) and toured over twenty countries and festivals including Sónar (HK), Primavera Sound(ES), and Hyperreality (AT), Meuko! Meuko! and NAXS Corp. present an online Live AV show inside of LEV-build VR world.
For the AV performance, NAXS creates a dystopian world full of abandoned statues, floating ruins, stray dogs and hieroglyphics based on 3D-scanned streets and temples, while Meuko supplies a soundtrack of experimental sonic dreamscapes.
This mythical cyber-world can also be visited through an online virtual reality experience curated by Meuko and NAXS. An immersive VR universe where, as music traverses its antiutopian ruins, you may find that this is not a fantasy or a fable, but the mythological reality in which we all live.
Taipei based artist Meuko! Meuko! is an experimental music producer and Live performer. She started performing solo in 2015 and then in 2017 under the monocle Meuko! Meuko! with A/V sets created in collaboration with ‘ Naxs corp.’ Each performance combines improvisation with conceptual ideas of noise, clubbing, strange sounds, field recordings that conjure at times ritualistic performances with sources tracing back to Taiwan’s own spiritual landscape.
NAXS Corp. is a Taiwan based, network embedded art collective founded in 2015. Focused on the accelerated transformation of human experiences, NAXS investigates the dialectic relation between posthuman mythology, animism ritual practices, creating its fictional framework for the internet society.
