More and more electronic acts are blurring the human elements in dance music in an attempt to place more focus on the art form and multi-sensory experience as a whole. We’ve seen it firsthand with mask and helmets hiding the identities of legends like Daft Punk and Deadmau5, and more recently with newer acts like ZHU performing behind a curtain.
The world’s first AI act, Karma Fields continues this trend with its latest audiovisual music project “The Hex,” which was revealed the other day in the form of a cryptic teaser video.
Allowing listeners to derive their own creative experience from the music, “The Hex” stage removes all real human elements from a live performance to show humanity in the form of music and Raven Kwok’s 3D visuals projected onto a hexagon.
There isn’t much more information about the alleged tour that will showcase this innovative live set up, but we’re definitely excited to see what this mysterious entity has in store for the future. In the meantime, listen to Karma Fields’ debut album New Age | Dark Age, which has hit #2 on the iTunes top global Dance albums charts and features collaborations from artists such as Talib Kweli, Kerli, and Juliette Lewis.
