M Entertainment Works (MEW) is redefining entertainment with its groundbreaking technology. The company’s remarkable performance-capture technology will be on full display at an entertainment show in the Official Gift Lounge of the GRAMMY Awards®, the largest and most prestigious music event in the United States, to be held in Las Vegas on April 3, 2022.
Legendary musician Robert Johnson is known as the “King of Delta Blues.” He died at the age of 27 leaving only 29 songs behind. He has had a great influence not only on blues musicians, but also on rock musicians such as Mick Jagger and Eric Clapton.
Using MEW’s technology, an avatar was created from only a few photos of Robert Johnson, capturing everything from his style of dress and characteristic body language to the character of his guitar. In the GRAMMY® Gift Lounge, there will be a booth with a single black-and-white chair. When visitors view this seemingly empty space through MEW’s app on their smartphones, Robert Johnson will appear and begin to play a song. The performance will be broadcast on the official MEW website and on social media.

NFT Marketplace to Enable Distribution of “Performing Avatars”
