Steve Aoki is always on the cusp of new age technology, music, and culture. With that said, his recently released Netflix documentary, “I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead,” is not only just a play on words.
During an interview with Rolling Stone, Aoki spoke about his plans to get his entire body cryogenically vitrified when he dies, with hopes that he will eventually be revived. This is no joke, as he’s already enlisted in Scottsdale, Arizona’s Alcor Life Extension Foundation for the process, which weighs a heavy price tag of around $220,000, he said to Rolling Stone.
The reason behind this? Aoki was influenced by reading famous books like “The Singularity Is Near,” and “The Age of Spiritual Machines,” by influential technologist and inventor Ray Kurzweil.
Once again, the 38-year-old DJ, producer, and futurist, is transforming the way we listen to music with his upcoming virtual reality album that’s not yet released but is hinted to be earlier this year. Revolutionizing music, culture, and entertainment, is only a few tasks Steve Aoki is fulfilling his life, or this life at least. What will he accomplish within his next life once he’s revived from his cryogenic chamber? It looks like a neon future…
Virtual reality is the future of art!!https://t.co/N5NlUSD1Mg
