Noise Against War & Destruction

Producing and working on several noise-experiments seemed natural during this strange war-saturated days.

Chris and sometimes friends of the Avatar Orchestra Metaverse were included into several musical jams and noisy little performances we did on synthesizers, granular-engines and numerous glitched field-recordings.

We were able to release a few sounds of our latest impromptu sessions, live performed and recorded at Studio Tokyo.

Today we released a little sneak preview of possible results just on SoundCloud. Feel free to listen inside the three variations of our groovy beat-mesh.

My Visit at POZOR UTOPIA!

This Monday i was invited to the fresh and colorful exhibition of Frieda Korda and Max D. Well at Odyssey inside SecondLife. The artists built a virtual version of Regensburg´s Sigismundkapelle and exhibited their impressing artworks and collages there.

Erno Vilafül presented a rocking sound-performance during the opening and made all visitors dance for hours.

Old Friends from The Avatar Orchestra Metaverse (AOM) came to join the party. My footage from the event captures a bit of this chilling and thrilling evening.

All in all it was a very good experience with a wonderful designed space, great artworks on the walls, fine decent sounds and lovely people around. The exhibition itself will be able for a visit a few months now.

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.
