This research and creation combines a Virtual Reality app, an album and a mixed reality installation/performance, which have programming, algorithm and artificial intelligence in common. The sound creation was made with the help of AI and machine learning tools - such as voice cloning and text generation. This sound base was applied to a VR app developed and designed to work as a music activation tool.

This virtual simulation plunges into a speculative future, where samples of bodies ha-bit the space. Revealing traces of a past that continues to haunt the lo-cal, this universe is the simulation of future ecosystems born from the fusion of technology and organic matter, where past and future coexist in the perpetual tension of the present.

With the VR tool, it will be possible to enter performative interaction spaces. It can be interpreted as a game, as the visitor will have the freedom to walk through the spaces and make decisions freely by controlling the sound composition in real time. With each new interaction in the app, a new and unique composition will emerge. Created by the relationship of distance, nuances and sequence of gestures, mystical relationship between music and nature, as well as a glimpse of the creation of new paradigms for unconventional sound writing.
The album performance, celebrates the 20th edition of ZABRA, and takes place in both realities. The instrument played in the performance to interpret the songs is the VR app itself.
