Admire’ 09 31th of July till 2 August’ 09 in Panhoven Zevenaar, Holland

by on Jul.22, 2009, under Virtual Worlds

ADMIRE ’09 – the Real Life gathering of many of the favourite Second Life musicians for a weekend of celebration, fun and music in the Netherlands from Friday 31st July to Sunday 2nd August.

With over 25 musicians to create music all weekend and a large open jam/collaborative session on Saturday 1st August from 9pm-midnight – this promises to be a carnival of music. The weekend theme is “collaboration” between musicians who have never played together and, of course, audience members, too.

Musicans you may hear over the weekend include XanderNichting Writer, Slim Warrior, Al Hoffman, Inchino Melson, Brad “JooZz” Monnett, Mar Biddle, Russell Eponym, Carah Nitely, Aurora Metaluna, Kaycee Drayman and Wannahave Ferraris, Blindboy Gumbo, Bara Jonson, and many more.

Portions of the ADMIRE event will be streamed into SL and there will be video uplinks, too.
The main SL location is the SLiteracy / PrimTings sims kindly provided by Ina Centaur: exact location is on the La Performance Stage in the sky above the center of the 4 connected sims:

The venue in RL is the Panhoven in Zevenaar, The Netherlands – a camping and hostel-type accomodation. Lots of places for musicians to jam, one big jam in the Conference Hall on the premisses on Saturday August 1, 12pm SLT (9pm local time)

Physical Virtuality – The Machinima.

by on Nov.10, 2008, under Virtual Worlds

Chantal Harvey produced a short machinima: Physical Virtuality ‘What’s the weight of an avatar?”. It gives a impression of the inworld experience of the mixed reality event of the same name that happened past Nov 1st.

I volunteered on the RL side an commented the following earlier on hamlet’s blogs about it:

“A lot of the public was still uncomfortable with virtual worlds and where surprised that people from around the globe would login and stand on a virtual see-saw with them. We had a lot if fun explaining, playing with them and in and introducing people to SL in this manner.

We have talked about how things could be improved, I think more modes of interactivity/communication would improve the experience. The 20 second video delay makes it disjointed experience.”

The whole experience has me thinking about fun SL<->RL interfaces, you could do things with lights, wind, sounds, etc. But what I’m more curious about is what kind of mixed reality contraptions would you like to play with? Share your serious or wacky ideas, and it might end up being developed.
