EMA: I Wanna Destroy at MoMA PS1

Post Author: Emily Cheng

On Sunday, February 15, EMA (a.k.a. Erika M. Anderson) performed “I Wanna Destroy,” a virtual reality environment built in conjunction with Portland, OR developer Zach Krausnick and the software company Chroma at MoMA PS1 in Long Island City, NY as a part of their “Sunday Sessions” series. The piece used game mechanics to articulate experiences not often explored in mainstream gaming such as guilt, nostalgia, family, and transcendence. EMA provided a live score, working to meld semi-acoustic instruments and lyrical content into a digital world.

EMA wants to destroy and we were there to watch and listen.
