Unearthing Hip Hop's Ancestry Through Live Virtual Reality Music Production

A special VR performance from The Glad Scientist, where he reveals his creative process in real-time, manipulating mixers, sequencers and samples in Virtual Reality using the HTC Vive. Ciphernautical is a future concept of encoding cultures from the present into the genetic code of emerging technologies. The piece will journey from hip-hop's roots of "ancestral collage" as a creative model to terraform an unknown future where Afrofuturism and Technoshamanism are guiding forces in the circuitry of our transhuman forms.
