Matadero Madrid center for contemporary creation
In the context of the 'Metaverses: Realities in Transition', Matadero Madrid and L.E.V. (Laboratorio de Electrónica Visual) present NeuroXcape Hybrid E-Rave 666: The Shadowbanner, a hybrid e-rave where the virtual and the physical intertwine.
NeuroXcape is built through a series of e-raves, hybrid actions and online exhibitions in metaverses, virtual reality platforms and streaming platforms (Club Cooee, IMVU, Twitch), where attendees can interact and be part of the experience through 3D avatars juxtaposed with the physical space (meatspace).
Organised by NeuroDungeon, with the participation of other local and international artists and DJs, this collaborative project of collective and expanded performance takes the form of a live role-playing game (LARP) using the context of leisure and materialising in a virtual club. A fictional work that invites us to reflect on how we interact and connect with each other in an era hyper-mediated by screens.
NeuroDungeon is an electronic music and art collective formed by Bartolomé, Kaverna and YESSi PERSE. A conceptual umbrella that encompasses a speculative art movement, a fictional music genre, a potential urban tribe, an interdimensional club and a fantastic science fiction corporation. It is a representation of the emotional state of the cognitariat, the cognitive proletariat, which emphasises the physical, neurological and psychological aspects of workers involved in the networked, post-industrial, immaterial production economy. The mental dungeon whose gatekeepers are vectorialist production systems, precariousness, and cyber-feudalism.
This activity is part of the project Realities in Transition, co-funded by the European Union and consisting of Seconde Nature (France), L.E.V. (Spain), KONTEJNER (Croatia), Ars Electronica (Austria), Dark Euphoria (France), V2_ Lab (The Netherlands) and iMal (Belgium).
