VNCII describing herself as an artist
OneEDM: Your avatar appears to be an interesting virtual young woman! How does your virtual self align with your real self, in person?
VNCCII: My avatar VNCCII is the main character of the story “Space A. IPERA”. I describe her as a super sensitive AI “superheroine” character. VNCII is a character who belongs to this fantasy world, and she is the star of the story that I am building. My ambition is to be as universal as a Marvel, Star Wars or Dune franchise. My avatar is an extension of my physical self, not a replacement. When I perform in real life (“IRL”) shows, I embody the outgoing version of myself in my character.
OneEDM: After the global pandemic devastated the mental health of so many young people from all socio-economic backgrounds groups around the world, there is a definite feeling of pandemic fatigue. Young people have lost almost two years of their life, isolated on their own, and it is two years that they cannot recover. Many young people have suffered greatly from their mental health, many still face it today. Don’t you think music is best experienced outdoors at a big music festival – in real life, able to touch and hug friends and strangers – and not live?
VNCCII: One hundred percent! Nothing replaces the organic connection with other human beings. Playing in the “metaverse” is just another way of telling a story, with technology. I see the future as a fusion of the physical and the digital – augmented performance, holographic, XR – where people are unable to distinguish between real life (IRL) and virtual.
“My ultimate mission is to empower people to be their best. “
VNCII tells people to be the best they can be.
OneEDM: Your Youtube livestreams look really sick and they are produced very well. I can say that a lot of energy has been put into each episode. Are you guiding your younger fans – or fans needing help in their real lives – on how to navigate the post-pandemic world?
VNCCII: What I love about my show, “The Future Humans 3.0”, is that it inspires fans and also uplifts the speakers I speak with. I believe there is a new creative renaissance around Web 3.0, non-fungible tokens (NFTs), and blockchain technology. It’s satisfying to receive feedback on how my show inspired them to embrace the metaverse and contemplate their own avatar. I think young fans like to watch the VNCCII avatar because it is engaging and inspiring. My ultimate mission is to empower people to be their best.
OneEDM: Do you see your livestreams as an escape from the sometimes difficult reality of today’s world, rather than an inspiration to help fans get out? in the real world and meet the challenges that lie ahead?
VNCCII: For a member of the community, this could serve as a fantastic form of escape. For another, my avatar and my content could inspire them in real life. Ultimately my wish for all fans is that my avatar inspires them to transcend their daily lives to do good deeds and live their full potential. I have seen some members of the community discover their identity through their avatar. This translates into building their inner confidence in real life and being able to be who they really are. That’s why I do what I do.
“I imagine a world where there is a symbiotic relationship between humans and technology”
VNCII’s dream for the future.
OneEDM: You seem to be an enlightened person and you have mentioned a number of futurists and thought leaders as personal inspiration for you. Do you see any positive results for humanity in the short term? What is your greatest hope for society as a whole, which you hope will come true in the next five years?
VNCCII: Such a deep question. The outcome for humanity will be linked to our current positive manifestations of the world. The next five years could be turbulent, with disruptive technologies and paradigm shifts, but ultimately I imagine a world where there is a symbiotic relationship between humans and technology. My hope for society as a whole would be that humans don’t get lost in the process of societal and technological change, and that we continue to value what makes humans so special: love, creativity, spirituality and love. connection. I believe we are living in the most exciting time in human history.
OneEDM: Tell us about your new single “i-LIBERATE”. What is the meaning behind this? What emotions do you hope the release will inspire listeners with? As a planet, where do we go from here?
VNCCII: “I-LIBERATE” is a transcendent and liberating dance floor song. The song encourages self-expression and the release of any social ties that prevent being one’s true higher self. “i-LIBERATE” is also a thought-provoking commentary on the fusion between humans and AI and questioning this gray area of freedom if humans and machines merge. This is the first song from my first album, VNCII and the new rebirth, released in 2022. The next single from the album is called “Level Up 2 Nirvana”, so stay tuned!
