With the release of his latest four-track EP, an immersive virtual reality experience in collaboration with the National Arts Council (NAC) of Singapore.
Dubbed MyrnEscapes, it’s designed to take audiences on a journey of vast, scenic landscapes – heavily inspired by stunning “otherworldly” graphics often seen on world-building video games – to explore themes of contemplation and of introspection. Each track on the EP comes to life with a world of its own, with images, icons and themes carefully selected to encapsulate the raw emotions and origins of each of the four tracks. The journey takes you on a one-of-a-kind multi-sensory experience to evoke a deeper form of expression by revolutionizing interaction with brand new music from Myrne.

He found it fun to create different worlds for different songs for MyrnEscapes.

MyrnEscapes is now available on the popular digital distribution platform, Steam. Access to explore and interact with the worlds of MyrnEscapes requires a Steam user account which can be created for free.
MyrnEscapes effectively has four worlds: the first is “What Can I Do”, which takes place in the middle of the red sands. This world is littered with runes and artifacts from a once powerful society. The second is “Circles”, a caving adventure in a vast mystical cave. The third is “Emotion,” which takes place on a lush, verdant set, exploring the remnants of a lost tribe as they attempt to tell their stories to you through shimmering artifacts. And the last is “Faithless”, a dense, forested jungle littered with bioluminescent flora surrounding a mystical river.
If you ask the artist behind these experiments, his favorite world is Faithless.
“The lighting and pathing really remind me of those lush atolls in Elder Scrolls games,” he explained.
