Miami-based music, art and technology festival III Points is set to unveil a revolutionary virtual reality experience alongside multi-platform media network Fusion. The never-before-seen production, Mars 2030, will transport festivalgoers to Mars in a VR experience emulating that of a NASA astronaut’s first-ever journey to the planet. The installation, made possible through ample research and a Space Act Partnership with NASA, will present a scarily authentic portrait of Mars, as seen through the eyes of a real astronaut.
“We been working for four years to truly merge the three elements of music, art and technology in our festival and this year’s Mars 2030 installation really is our best example of all the three points in perfect synchronicity,” said David Sinopoli, co-founder of III Points.
The multi-sensory, 3D project was designed by Fusion’s VR Developer, Julian Reyes, and will showcase an original soundtrack, Hope, conducted by Grammy Award winner Julio Reyes.
Slated to take place in Wynwood October 7-9, III Points will play host to a treasure trove of acts like LCD Soundsystem, Black Coffee, Thievery Corporation and many more. Tickets are still available here.
Since its inception, III Points has aimed to serve not only as a destination in Miami for cutting-edge music & tech, but also to elevate the city’s underground music scene. Part of their efforts in doing so for the 2016 edition lie in their newest venture alongside Little Haiti company 10k Islands: Swerving Serpents Vol. 1, a compilation EP whose first edition will slowly reveal itself to the public throughout September leading up to the festival.
The concept is simple: choose nine up-and-coming local artists defying the status quo and pair them together in a top-notch recording studio for 2 days with “a bag of weed, a box of pizza and total creative freedom.” What results is experimental, yet well-crafted tracks that put forth the palpable energy sparked by their creative chemistries coming together.
“Bored Games” marks the first of four works to be included on Swerving Serpents Vol.1, a low-end experimental number by Nick León and POORGRRRL. It traverses a winding path through distant melodies and relaxed vocals that are given density by heavy bass. The slow-burning track is best suited for casual listening, demonstrating the best of Miami’s hidden, underground talent.
Originals from Twelve’len x Twelve Tales, Austin Paul x SNDNGCHLLZ x Byrdipop and Deaf Poets x Virgo will be released in the coming weeks, which will be released via III Points’ SoundCloud.
Miami’s picturesque III Points festival, to take place October 7-9 in the downtown locale of Wynwood, has built a reputation for itself over the past three years as the city’s destination for the avant-garde side of music, art, and technology. As the annual festival prepares for its fourth iteration, its organizers have unleashed a phase three lineup brimming with talent from all shades of the underground, including Dixon, LCD Soundsystem, M83, and more.
The new list of talent includes rapper Cam’ron, whose notoriety has been steadily building and will fully culminate in his debut album, which drops in the near future. Benoit + Sergio, known for their robust deep house sets, have also been added, along with Afrobeta, Brett Love, and others.
The local artist lineup has also been expanded to include M.O.N.R.O.E., Grumps, and Patrick Walsh, among other Miami-bred icons. Meanwhile, activities continue to be unveiled as well; this year, III Points has added its first Virtual Reality lounge in conjunction with Learn 01, where revelers can educate themselves on the technology and even test it out themselves.
With artists like LCD Soundsystem, Flying Lotus, Dixon and Black Coffee set to perform at the fourth annual III Points Music, Art and Technology Festival, October can’t come soon enough. Festival season is now winding down for the year, but Miami’s celebrated downtown neighborhood, Wynwood, is only just beginning to prepare.
Behrouz, who will perform the three-day festival, has a knack for blending and building upon the house, tribal and techno elements incorporated into his sets. Tapping into the talents of David Hohme, YokoO and Lehar, the Miami-based producer merges an array of tracks – both released and unreleased – as they seamlessly flow in and out from one another like sand slipping through an hourglass.
