Nanotopia’s Midnight Mushroom Music Living Mycelium - Premiere

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

During the performance Metaverse Artist R00T is embodying the Mycelium spirit through an interpretive dance together with other Mycelials from the MCSA.

Terrestrials visiting Mycelia might find themselves able to interact with the virtual Mycelia organism that is connected to Living physical mycelium. Touching the Mycelia organism triggers sensors in the physical world, behaving as a form of physical touch. The real-world mycelium responds sonically* & visually within Mycelia.

Space is limited to these performances - registration is required to ensure you experience these events in VRChat. All performances are PWYC with a suggested donation of 10 €.  Register here.

Mycelia resides in VRChat and requires a PCVR compatible headset. No Quest supported (except when using the pc version via virtual desktop or airlink). PC users without VR headset can also access the world in 2D desktop mode through VRChat.

Make sure to install VRChat, setup your profile and walk through the tutorial if you are a new user: https://store.steampowered.com/app/438100/VRChat/

For folks without a headset or PC there will be free live streamed performances:
