Featured artist: Mayming
Mayming (= Semay Wu and Seaming To, two British-born Chinese musicians) collaborated with Michael England (who did the visuals) on “a short movie to a virtual film festival presented by Toshiba in Second Life”:
Michael describes these as stills from an improvisational audio piece: “…I treated it as
a game almost, with each of the artists entrapping each other with
spells. At each stage as they ascend to various levels, the characters
face spirits or witch versions of each other, hypnotising themes
through music, trapping them in prison balls, et cetera. The piece
submitted is the trailer for a live composite performance piece that
we’ve been applying for funding for. Hopefully, it will be a
large-scale, live cinematic piece.”
