@virtual_self's description as of October 25, 2017

Virtual Self logo
Virtual Self, stylized as VIRTUAL SELF, is a project by Porter Robinson.

BackgroundEdit

The Twitter account for the project was created on October 23, 2015, though it was not until October 25, 2017 that Robinson officially announced it along with the release of "EON BREAK".

The project's self-titled debut extended play was released on November 29, 2017. On December 8, 2017, its first live show, VIRTUAL SELF UTOPIA, was also scheduled to be held in Brooklyn, New York's Avant Gardner[1], though Robinson confirmed in an update on December 1, 2017 that the venue had changed.[2] It was initially believed that the project was tied into an alternate reality game; however, Robinson said to a fan the night of the event—and later confirmed in an interview with Dazed[3]—that there was not one involved.

technic-AngelEdit

Technic-Angel
The technic-Angel, also known as the technic_Angel and/or Technica[4], is one of the two character figures associated with Virtual Self. Their gender is unconfirmed, though they are believed to be female due to their appearance—a young womanlike figure in a dark robe— and also speculated to represent half of the project.

According to virtualself.co, they are the creator of "Particle Arts", "Key", and "EON BREAK". The handle for their Twitter account is @technic_Angel.

PathselectorEdit

Pathselector
Pathselector is the second of the character figures and the speculated other half of Virtual Self. While their gender, like the technic-Angel's, is unconfirmed, they are depicted as being donned in light clothing, with white hair and a gold mask covering a majority of their face.

According to virtualself.co, they are the creator of "Ghost Voices" and "a.i.ngel". The handle for their Twitter account is @pathselector.

TriviaEdit

  • One of the greatest influences for Virtual Self was the 1998 anime series Serial Experiments Lain.[3]
  • The date of the project's revelation, Robinson's "This Is Good" playlist on Spotify was cleared save for four songs: "Lesson One" by Starsmith, "Satisfy" by NERO, "Candy Flavored Lips (bo en ใ‚คใƒ‘ใƒใƒžREMIX)" by Spazzkid, and "EON BREAK".[5]
