On May 24th 2018, NKRIOT undertakes his most unique form of live performance in his career. In collaboration with visual artist Cloaking, 3-D Space and The Downtown Independent Theater, we invite you to our newest experience celebrating the release of NKRIOT’s latest EP, titled "Virtual Climax Recording".

NKRIOT looms in front of the screen, your aural guide down an ocular rabbit hole. You will be introduced to our desensitized heroine who finds herself in the midst of a robotic transformation. In defiance of mainstream AI, she discovers in her transformation the meaning of existence and the connection to human emotion, more so than in her previous life. Now, trapped in a world of 3-Dimensional wormholes and planes of the multiverse, she staggers, saddened that she was not grateful for the life she once lived, but rather valued her worth at the materialistic society we all have become accustomed to. The resulting regret and tarnish are represented by decomposition of landscape and vision.

The eponymous EP “Virtual Climax Recording” was inspired by the abstract and dark recesses of NKRIOT’s nightmares, fueled by the robot’s distorted visions of reality. NK sought to concoct a virtual escape route to drive back the definitive notion that even as a robot you can always uphold your humanistic values. The music of “Virtual Climax Recording” sonically propels you through the chromatic canvas of sound using new techniques and design. New effects layered throughout the EP come due to new brand sponsor iZotope, the standard in intelligent audio technology. The new provisions by iZotope bring the NKRIOT soundscape to a new level, where listeners will hear a covert clarity in the harsh, clashing, electro-punk style that NK has so cleverly fused.

Feature Presentation:
The screening of “Virtual Climax Recording” and release of the EP comes with great excitement from the artist and his team as they look forward to being at the forefront for DIY innovators alike. Each movement and visual displayed during the showing is all completely original content developed and designated specifically for this event. The pairing of the new music with visuals renders the event a truly mind-blowing dual package that nods to some of the inspirations to the NKRIOT-sphere including George Lucas’s 1971 dystopian debut THX 1138 and Ridley Scott’s replicants of the 1982 Blade Runner.
