When Subway Meets Metaverse

Musical and gaming artist, Minx Couture, bridges the gap between Underground and Metaverse musicians.

I think eventually, as more and more people get involved in virtual reality, we will have alternatives to be able to organize paid events and spaces to hang out.

NEW YORK, NY, USA, May 13, 2022 / EINPresswire.com/ – Minx Couture is a Bronx musician and player with one goal in mind and that is leveling the playing field for indie musicians around the entire world.

“When the Covid-19 pandemic happened, it felt like a reset for everyone in every conceivable field. The underground music industry was hit hard, so we were left to figure things out on our own.

The pandemic has forced the closure of many hotspots in different cities, leaving musicians of all kinds unable to be in the places they love most, namely the studio and theatre.

“I’ve always been the type of artist who enjoys the studio experience. As much as I hate to say it’s a hideaway. You have to spend time, compose music, and meet new artists along the way,” she began. “Live streaming became a thing for me because you have to digitally connect to the audience and talk to them. It cured my social anxiety”

But this was not enough. While browsing one game night, Minx came across an advertisement for the Oculus Quest 2.

“I didn’t know much about virtual reality at the time. I thought it was a great device for playing games and watching Youtube. I wasn’t familiar with the social media aspect, which blew me away,” she laughs.

Minx is starting to explore social apps like VR Chat, Meta Horizon, and Spatial as a way to slowly dive into this new sea of ​​exploration.

“What I loved the most was the idea of ​​being able to create your own world. It could be a place to relax and chat, play games or have events as an avatar that you create. You can be whatever you want to be and create what you want to create and monetize it. Almost like a Patreon server Or Discord as a scientist.

Minx knew right away at that point that she wanted to bring her game and podcast to the Metaverse.

“People were laughing at me,” she laughed. “They said what I was doing was basically weird and childish. I sat for hours working on my virtual spaces and showing them on my social media and was told it was wrong to build into the metaverse. In my entire life, I didn’t understand the backlash.

Minx has gone from global creativity to Avatar creations and started her journey as a Vtuber with her MINX Radio platform.

“I think what shocked everyone the most was that I was having fun and being stupid. Bringing real-life elements into my metaverse, which is the music and music videos of independent artists brought to my platform and shared with people in space and during live broadcasts, bridging the gap.

Minx created MINX Radio to allow artists to showcase their music and participate in discussions related to the underground music industry.

“I think eventually as more and more people get involved in virtual reality, we will have alternatives to be able to organize paid events and spaces to hang out and build as musicians if there is another closure. We should always be prepared for a rainy day.”
