Pop Art Lab and Treet.TV Presents:
POP VOX Feat. Deathline (UK)
Date: April 24, 2PM PDT/SLT

Location: Pop Art Lab sim
Hosts: Persia Bravin/Claus Uriza

We are pleased to present 2011s first Pop Vox show feat. Deathline (UK).

Be prepared for the most raunchy black noisy Pop Vox ever!

Deathline is a duo from London, UK. Members Jennie (bass guitar, vocals) and Kaoru (guitar, vocals and programming) formed the group after quitting popular Artrocker stable band Electric Shocks. Deathline play a lo-fi blend of electronic backing and harsh, garage rock style overdriven instrumentation, that was labelled “rock noir” by their supporters due to its dark and atmospheric nature with elements of disco and old school rap and electro backing entering the mix. They are known for their dark, glamorous and androgynous image, which Kaoru perhaps draws on from his time as lead guitarist with notorious late 90’s drag queen punks, Six Inch Killaz.

Swedish-born Jennie’s vocal style has been likened to “a punk rock Nico”, while the group’s mixture of electronic textures and beats, harsh guitar sounds, feedback and repetitive lyrics have drawn comparisons with the likes of The Fall, The Jesus and Mary Chain, LCD Soundsystem, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and The Raveonettes.

"POP ART LAB" BREAKS INTO INTERACTIVE DIGITAL ARTS - ART BREAKER

On Sept. 4th 2010, Pop Art Lab will open Art Breaker, a two month exhibition of interactive digital artwork by eight of the most famous and prolific Second Life artists. The opening event will mix speakers, artists introduction and live music, in a world class, not-to-be-missed event.
The event and exhibition is a partnership between the Nordic Virtual Worlds Network (NWVN), Treet.TV and Pop Art Lab.

Art Breaker: Two month exhibition of interactive digital art - An established music venue in Second Life, Pop Art Lab will host a major event starting on the 4th of September, 2010. This event, titled "Art Breaker", is a collaboration of eight major Second Life artists. They have been challenged to set up an exhibition made of visual and sound art, aimed at being interactive and reactive to the visitor. The artists are (Second Life names): Bryn Oh, Abstract Baroque, Sunn Thunders, Miso Susanowa, Misprint Thursday, Sabrinaa Nightfire, Binary Quandry, Sledge Roffo. This collaboration will take place over a full sim (virtual piece of land of 65000 sqm). The artists have been allotted a parcel each and been given free hands to their creativity. The result is a wide variety of ideas, atmospheres, and interactions.

Art Breaker: A celebration - To celebrate the beginning of this major exhibition, and also remembering that this date is the anniversary of its creation, Pop Art Lab will organize on the 4th of September, 2010 a worldwide event. Along with famous speakers, the artists will have the opportunity to speak of their creations and to interact with the audience. And not to forget music, a selection of the finest Second Life musicians - some of whom having a successful real life career as well - will play music live. As Second life is a worldwide environment, the event will span a 12 hour period to allow people in Europe, the Americas, and Asia to participate in their respective timezones. The event will also be partly recorded and broadcasted by Treet TV, a Second Life specific television network.
_________________________________

Second Life introduction - Second Life is the most famous and successful virtual world, with its 1 million regular visitors and its total of 20 million sign-ups in its seven year exsistence.

Pop Art Lab introduction - Present in Second Life since Sept. 2008, Pop Art Lab is a virtual music venue, aiming at bringing real life music industry into Second Life thanks to three major actions:
1. Promoting music by broadcasting brand new music in-world. Four full CDs are constantly played inside the venue and are changed on a bi weekly basis. This allows visitors to listen to the latest releases, sometimes even before they are actually available in their countries and stay tuned to music industry news.
2. Supporting singers and musicians who want to break into Second Life by organizing concerts and TV shows. Pop Art Lab regularly hosts in-world concerts, inviting performers to play in front of a virtual audience. Pop Art Lab also hosts TV shows, where musicians are interviewed before playing their songs. This show is made in partnership with Treet TV and has included artists like Greg Hawkes (The Cars) and Max Morgan http://treet.tv/shows/popvox.
3. Pioneering the collaboration between real world major music companies and Second Life activities.

Pop Art Lab also sets standards in virtual venues design, giving its visitors a unique experience. Taking advantage of Second Life technical abilities, the place has nothing in common with real life - being there is being in your fantasy land!

We are pleased to announce our next,

Pop Vox TV show featuring the futuristic electronica sounds of Redzone. This band have gained critical acclaim from RL music press plus a legion of followers in Second Life. Known for their spine tingling live shows that combine stunning visuals, fragments of live action video and their unique edgy sound, this is a TV interview and live concert not to be missed.

Hamlet Au, New World Notes: "They play for steampunks and post-apocalyptics and their metaverse band headquarters is the wreckage of a Soviet troop chopper abandoned in the desert. They're a British trio called Redzone, and of all the many bands who regularly play in Second Life, so far they're my favorite"

Redzone is Cabaret Voltaire (vocals/electric violin), Red Xu (guitar/bass guitar/samples), and Avomatsur Rustamova (synth/electric double bass/theremin). Redzone have a unique and original sound, fusing industrial, hiphop, musique concrète, electronica, classical, alternative and ambient influences. Fast and tight - tender and evocative - their unique songs and sounds hijack your soul, activate your reward circuits and energize your entire being. Talented, committed, passionate - this band have the confidence and energy to rock an audience. Redzone have been compared to Collide, Bjork and Recoil among others, but defy categorisation. Redzone were credited by Wired and Reuters as being the first band to tour in Second Life.

Please note the interview is limited to 40-50 seats. Come early!
