Opening night: Duet Live by Tim Shiel

Monday 20 May, 7pm - 9pm

Duet by Tim Shiel

Enter a mesmerising trance of duality with Duet LIVE – a minimalist gaming experience that will expand the limits of your perception.

To launch MKW19, we present Duet LIVE – a live-scored, fully-immersive gaming experience that puts you in control. Behind this game’s simple facade is a thrilling philosophical depth and a mesmerising soundtrack by electronic musician Tim Shiel, performed with a four-piece band and string quartet. Come to the Hub, where you can choose to face off against a fellow audience member, or sit back and let the music and visuals wash over you. Stick around to enjoy the opening night party.

“A masterpiece of simplicity, feeling and flow.” – Ben Kuchera, Polygon.
