Open Mike in Second Life

HD Artists in Second Life (That's me) is offering an "open mike" on Sunday, July 6, 2008 from 1 pm PST. Music: modern classical, ambient. minimalism, noise, etc. Please email me or IM me in-world (Flivelwitz Alsop), if you wish to perform. I hope it will be a successful concert!

Han Bat

Carl Stone, an American composer living all around the Pacific rim, and who works primarily with electronic music, currently has an exhibition in Japan called Han Bat. It's a multi-sound installation "that builds from slow juxtapositions of various acoustic dimensions and spatializations that were enregistered using a special 8-channel portable recording system, The Octaphone, in 2007 and 2008", according to the article at Networked_Music_Review. Sounds like it will be a blast.

They spent the following 40 years seeking out the artist's work and assembling the largest private collection of Dali's art in the world.
At the moment, there is a wonderful exhibit on Dali and Film, and you can watch many of the films Dali was involved in, including Un chien andalou and L'Âge d'Or.

2) Ringling Museum - Located on a 66-acre estate on Sarasota Bay, The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art was established in 1927 as the legacy of John Ringling (1866-1936) an…
