Costin Chioreanu VR PR4

When this year’s Inferno Festival was cancelled due to the current Corona virus crisis also cancelled was the much-anticipated guided Virtual Reality tour “Midnight Cemetery” that was going to be brought to you by Costin Chioreanu and Adrian Tabacaru. The exhibition would have encompassed the entire story of the album “Afterlife Romance” by Chioreanu and Sofia Sarri, and would have allowed fans to enter the world of Costin Chioreanu’s art, enabling them to walk amongst, and through, elements of his artwork, and to interact with them at some levels.

Having seen how the cancellation of all live shows and forced isolation has affected the morale of music fans everywhere, Dark Essence Records and Fruits of Venus Productions have joined forces to give fans something to look forward to by offering the “Midnight Cemetery” experience to everyone as a free-to-download Virtual Reality Tour.

Produced by Adrian Tabacaru and Costin Chioreanu “Midnight Cemetery” can be explored using a dedicated VR-Headset, or as a standalone PC Game.  As Dark Essence explains:

In these dark times for humanity, Fruits of Venus Productions and Dark Essence Records are starting a campaign to spread a combination of art, music and technology, using some alternative tools and a new type of approach in what will be a first in the history of metal music.

After the “Midnight Cemetery” exhibition, which was supposed to have its premiere at Inferno Festival 2020, was cancelled due to the current pandemic, Costin Chioreanu and Adrian Tabacaru, the creators of this amazing virtual experience, realised that this project was suitable for spreading all over the world, and, that by doing so, they could offer moments of magic to people in lock-down in their homes. Having released “Afterlife Romance” in 2019 and hearing Costin’s ideas, we were also enthusiastic about this endeavour.

Fruits of Venus Commented:

You will hopefully find that the “Midnight Cemetery” virtual tour is a new way to experience art in the current digital domain. A premiere for the music industry, it gives a new dimension to a recording, by giving life not just to the music, but also to all the illustrations created for booklets, in one fascinating virtual experience.

Instead of being stuck in Oslo, and available only to those attending Inferno 2020 “Midnight Cemetery” will now be available world-wide and everyone will be able to experience it via a free download App. The world-wide premiere is set for March 31st, 2020 and on that day we will publish the download link so you can enjoy it, and spread it to your friends and beyond.

Whilst waiting for its impending release, you can check out the very first images from this experience and see a little insight into the creation of the project below and at https://youtu.be/aIeOVX66xx4

Costin Chioreanu Inferno Fest 2020

Romanian artist and musician COSTIN CHIOREANU is set to debut “Midnight Cemetery”, a guided Virtual Reality tour, at 2020’s Inferno Metal Festival in Oslo, Norway, which this year takes place from the 9th to the 12th April.

Taking place at the Rockefeller venue, “Midnight Cemetery” is a visual rendition of “Afterlife Romance”,  the recent album by CHIOREANU and Greek singer  SOFIA SARRI, which was released on Dark Essence Records at the end of last year.  CHIOREAN, who joined forces with fellow artist and musician ADRIAN TABACARU to make this vision a reality,  tells us something about the event:

“Midnight Cemetery”   is a  guided Virtual Reality tour that encompasses the complete story of the album “Afterlife Romance” and takes it to the maximum level of insanity. In what will be the worldwide premiere of “Midnight Cemetery” , you will literally be able to enter my personal visual world through the medium of Virtual Reality.  And there you will be able to interact with elements of this dark and strange realm thanks to the alien-skilled ADRIAN TABACARU.

We suggest you might like to visit our stand, which you will find at the Rockefeller artist area,  before your first beer -otherwise you will might remain trapped in the Midnight Cemetery…forever.

Through his art and video productions, COSTIN CHIOREANU has a long history of collaboration with many of the Dark Essence Records bands, as well as bands and artists like Rune Eriksen of MAYHEM, AURA NOIR and EARTH ELECTRIC, AT THE GATES, GHOST, SIGH and VULTURE INDUSTRIES.  But many fans may not have been aware, until recently, that this devotee of avant-garde is also a talented musician who uses a wide range of effects to create never-before heard  sounds with his guitar.

ADRIAN TABACARU is the other creative half of the “Midnight Cemetery” Virtual Reality experience, building the whole structure and giving life to CHIOREANU’s illustrations.  After graduating from the Music University, TABACARU gained a huge amount of advanced knowledge in the field of interactive music composition and performing arts,  receiving a master’s degree for his professional practices. His musical inspiration comes from Classical music, Jazz Fusion, Electronic music and Progressive Rock.  Today, TABACARU is a much-respected drummer, musician, composer and multimedia artist, playing together with Costin Chioreanu and Sofia Sarri in the band ARAC. He has a wide range of activities including live performances, music composition, video production and multimedia art installations, and has recently concentrated his focus on Virtual Reality experiences.

Also a fan of metal and avant-garde, SOFIA SARRI is a vocalist with a breadth of artistic vision and talent that frees her from any kind of genre-imposed shackles.  Having recorded with artists associated with free jazz, improvisation and polyphonic choirs, her  2017 solo album “Euphoria” allowed her to fully utilise her wide-ranging, unearthly,  vocals that move with ease from graceful fragility, to wild, and powerful abandon.
