Mat Zo embarks on virtual album tour via Minecraft
The world’s first live timecoded Minecraft performance with five dates and a series of very special guests
Following the success of Stratosfest, the next-level Minecraft music event that he spearheaded, Mat Zo continues to reaffirm his status as one of dance music’s most forward-thinking iconoclasts by launching an ambitious five-date virtual tour celebrating the release of his acclaimed album ‘Illusion Of Depth’. The tour will make ‘stops’ across time zones around the world, and showcase a different opener on each date.
Never one to rest on his laurels, Mat Zo’s one-of-a-kind tour will add even more technical innovations to enhance the immersive online experience for concertgoers.
We’ve been throwing some crazy Minecraft parties this year. MZAF, Hospitality, and Mad Zoo in the Void, Stratosfest, were all groundbreaking in some way and I’m super proud to be part of the team who put them together, – Zo says. – Our next big accomplishment is using MIDI timecoding to control the visuals. This has never been done before in Minecraft, and it’s possibly the first time MIDI timecoding has been achieved in any interactive virtual event.
Featuring a diverse range of opening acts, as Zo describes:
the tour kicks off with Olan, my collab buddy who features heavily on my new album. Then Qrion on the next day, making a return from her unforgettable set at Stratosfest. Nox Vahn, one of my favorite up and comers on the scene, and Fatum, with whom I go way back to my first shows in the US. The final date of the tour features David West, who is probably one of my favorite producers of all time and had a huge impact on me growing up. This tour is going to be really special for many reasons and I can’t wait to experience it with all of you!
