Real time game simulation with live soundtrack META is an immersive audio-visual journey into future and unknown worlds, by new media artist CLON (Estela Oliva) in collaboration with electronic musician Ana Quiroga. Inspired by sci-fi narratives and cyberpunk aesthetics, META invites the audience to explore a parallel reality, a simulated world unfolding in real-time through interconnected utopian and dystopian scenes. The performance is presented in “first-person view”, placing the audience as the main character of the experience, in which they act as transient travelers in CLON’s world. Along this uncanny trip, the original soundtrack is scored live by Ana Quiroga featuring cinematic atmospheres with dark ambiences, tribal rhythms and digitally processed voices, which create a mystic palette of imaginary worlds. META has been presented at international events such as Mutek (Montreal and Buenos Aires), MIRA Festival (Berlin), Sonar Hong Kong, Inmersiva CCDMX (Mexico), Mirage (France), and Amplify at Espacio Fundacion Telefonica Lima (Peru).

CLON is the project of artist, director and curator Estela Oliva, in which she explores futuristic and speculative fiction to reflect on the impact of digital technologies and the Internet in human behaviour, identity and our surroundings. CLON’s hybrid environments blend the physical and the virtual, unfolding a set of connected stories and experiences. These narratives come to life in experimental formats such as VR experiences and walk-throughs, installations, performances and films. As CLON, Estela has exhibited internationally at Somerset House, Barbican Centre, Art Night London, Sonar Hong Kong, Espacio Fundacion Telefonica (Peru), MIRA Festival (Barcelona), and Mutek (Montreal).
