Metaverse Concert: “Flooting Grooves”

Sponsored by the Cantaloupe Island DAO, the spectacular Sky City Concert Hall on parcel #476 in VR in Somnium Space will be the venue of an amazing live concert by Flooting Grooves. The concert will be held on July 25th, 2021, at 16:00 CET / 10:00 AM EDT.

FLOOTING GROOVES is the solo project of Pearce van der Merwe – a musician/producer who likes to combine flute and other instruments with cool electronic fx resulting in pleasant feelings and deeper states of consciousness. Born in Cape Town in 1975, he grew up in South Africa and Italy, surrounded by music. After having tried various instruments at a young age including violin, piano and french horn he finally settled on the silver flute, heavily influenced by an encounter with Jethro Tull. His early exposure ranged from classical to jazz, rock and related styles. Groups like Ozric Tentacles and Pink Floyd opened him up to Psychedelia and that’s where his journey began.
