As technologies like WebGL and Web Audio become more ubiquitous, we don’t have to experience the internet as though we are standing in front of a wall. There is an opportunity to re-envision the web as a rich dynamic responsive world.
Unlike the fixed trajectory of most video games, users are invited to freely explore and study the environments without being locked into any particular goal or agenda.
Thermal is out now on Break World Records! Tracing threads from their previous deconstructed dancefloor works into thrilling new directions, the Thermal EP is Teengirl Fantasy’s most mature and cohesive work to date. It features four new songs: two instrumentals that showcase the duo’s sensual and intuitive way with texture, and two primetime vocal tracks featuring the new queen of underground Korean R&B, Hoody (후디), and rising NYC recording artist Lafawndah.
Join them tomorrow night for their release party at Palisades, Brooklyn. Ft. TGF live and DJ sets by Lafawndah, Pictureplane and Gatekeeper!
4Real is a young digital agency started by musician/hacker Slava and artist Analisa Teachworth. 4REAL works with clients to fuse art and technology via digital environments with the goal of fostering a more immersive and poetic internet.
