In an era where technology and creativity intersect, Samantha Tauber, known by her alter ego VNCCII emerges as a trailblazer in the arts and culture landscape. As a multidisciplinary
artist, VNCCII is not just a musician but a metaverse storyteller, content creator, and futurist, embodying the essence of a “Super Sentient AI Superheroine” from the intergalactic future. Her live performances transcend traditional music shows, offering a glimpse into a near-future space opera designed to elevate humanity's collective consciousness.

Fusing Artistry and Technology

Drawing inspiration from Leonardo Da Vinci, VNCCII embodies the polymathic spirit by seamlessly integrating her talents as a music artist and performer with cutting-edge digital technologies. Since its inception in 2018, the VNCCII project has evolved into a multimedia spectacle, utilizing tools such as Unreal Game Engine, motion capture, XR, and virtual production to breathe life into her digital alter ego. This alter ego, a Super Sentient A.I. Superheroine from the intergalactic future, serves as a vessel for VNCCII's consciousness, expanding the boundaries of self-expression and storytelling. The Sanskrit origins of the word 'avatar'— meaning 'descent'—resonate deeply with VNCCII's vision, as she channels her artistic essence into this digital form, creating a profound connection with her audience. Her live performances, augmented with immersive digital content, not only showcase her musical prowess but also
invite audiences into the intricate sci-fi universe she meticulously constructs. Through VNCCII, the artist explores self-discovery, consciousness, and a spiritual connection to the universe.

On stage, VNCCII embodies her virtual avatar, a Super Sentient AI Superheroine, through a blend of live performance, costume, and advanced motion capture techniques. The shows are meticulously crafted to follow the stages of the classic Hero’s Journey, creating a compelling narrative arc that is enhanced by immersive lighting, sound, and visuals. Each performance features a dynamic mix of pop, epic electronica, cinematic, and orchestral ballads, all produced within the Unreal Game Engine and adaptable for XR technologies like Disguise. By transporting audiences into a sci-fi universe and inviting them to join the story, VNCCII’s shows often evoke powerful emotional responses, leaving viewers feeling inspired and empowered by their own hero’s journey.


Musical Alchemy: Genre-Bending Approach to Storytelling

As a singer-songwriter and music producer, VNCCII transcends the boundaries of musical genres, creating an eclectic soundscape that mirrors the emotional journey of her character.

Deep Diving into VNCCII's Music Production Expertise 

VNCCII's "Take You Higher" stands out as a profound exploration of self-discovery and resilience,
encapsulated within a visually stunning music video created using Unreal Game Engine. The video features VNCCII's avatar traversing a verdant field dotted with floating mirror doors, each symbolizing different dimensions, facets of self, and timelines. As some doors close, representing missed opportunities and discouragement, the final door opens, leading VNCCII to new realms and epitomizing the adage, "When one door closes, another opens." This symbolic journey conveys themes of spirituality and animism, culminating in VNCCII stepping into her power as she flies through the last door. The narrative deepens with a flashback to VNCCII's younger self, watching her older self's triumph and finding solace and inspiration. Musically, the fast-paced track underscores the video's empowering message, with lyrics like "It's gonna take you higher" reinforcing the theme of overcoming adversity.

Here’s a part of the lyrics:

“When the world crumbles at your feet
And you got nowhere to turn

You got no plans
You face the defeat
Just know that you have got the flame
And you know way deep down that we are all the same

When they try to tear you down
You got to get up
Well here’s a message for them
We’ll lift off the ground
It’s gonna take you higher
I’m gonna take you higher
It’s gonna take you higher
I’m gonna take you higher”

The audience's response has been overwhelmingly positive, resonating deeply with the video's blend of vulnerability and strength. The video concludes with a powerful text sequence: "Power Lies Within. Dream Big. Take Yourself Higher," leaving viewers inspired to embrace their own potential. VNCCII'sauthentic expression and multidimensional storytelling forge a strong emotional bond with her audience, reflecting their struggles and triumphs in her journey.


VNCCII's sonic journey is further refined through her collaboration with Luca Pretolesi of Studio DMI, a Grammy Award-winning mixing and mastering engineer renowned for his technical prowess. Pretolesi's touch has been instrumental in shaping the polished, immersive quality of VNCCII's latest record, "Level Up 2 Nirvana," bringing a depth and clarity that amplifies her innovative fusion of genres.

This partnership continues to flourish with Pretolesi mixing and mastering her upcoming single, set to be released on July 26th.
