Between the Years – What´s going on?

Time between Christmas and New Years Eve became rather silent here at my studio excepting some jams with Chris and visits from my family. School is in holidays and they were pretty needed by me for relaxing, regeneration and new thoughts.

New instruments like Microfreak from Arturia and Digitakt from Elektron were my Christmas goodies for this year and i am using the cocooned winter time for welcoming them in a stately way.

It will need some time to get fully inside this mighty instruments which brings a lot of fun, spice and joy into the studio workflow.

Also we are planning and sketching up the upcoming Art´s Birthday in January 2022, celebrated by Pomodoro Bolzano as every year since a long time now.

This shows our invitation card for the voice calls. And here comes the original invitation from Max´s official art-mail:

Art´s Birthday 1000058

This years Art´s Birthday „OPERA BILITY“ was entirely virtual performed and realized. Location for the event was our parcel at Odyssey in Second Life. A meeting room on Zoom offered another access to the party.

Frieda Kuterna aka Frieda Korda built a wonderful workshop replique at Odyssey and created a colorful cozy location for the birthday celebration.

The evening started relaxed and mostly quiet before artist SaveMe Oh showed up and rocked our party there for hours.

SaveMe Oh did a great show with all her visuals and breathtaking particles which filled the entire space.

The zoom-conference was streamed directly on a screen which was placed inside the workshop in Second Life. So the participants in-world were able to see what was ongoing in zoom at Real Life.

Our crowd of people was a pretty nice assortment of longtime residents from the virtual world and very appreciated at the party location.

Chris Wittkowsky aka Paco Mariani, Maxxo Klaar and Frieda Korda did gladly this wonderful screenshots during the entertaining event. In the meanwhile i was too busy by guiding the camera for our video-stream.

As last happening on this colorful, groovy evening, Blaise de La France performed a great synthesizer-performance for us, which gave the final blast to this art´s birthday.
