EMA, who released one of our favorite albums of 2014, will be returning to NYC in February to present her new project, I Wanna Destroy, at MoMA PS1 on 2/15, part of the venue's Sunday Sessions. Here's more details:
I Wanna Destroy is a Virtual Reality environment built in collaboration with Portland-based developer Zach Krausnick and the software company Chroma. This virtual world uses 3D game mechanics to articulate experiences not often explored in mainstream gaming; including guilt, nostalgia, family, and transcendence. Audience members explore a changing 3D environment, while their experiences are projected before the entire audience. EMA providse a live score, working to meld semi-acoustic instruments and lyrical content into a digital world.
It's her only announced date at the moment. Tickets are on sale now.
