The Avatar Orchestra Metaverse is a global collaboration of composers, artists and musicians that approaches the virtual reality platform Second Life as an instrument itself. The Orchestra conceives, designs and builds its own virtual instruments, making it possible for each individual performer in the Orchestra to trigger sounds independent from one another and to play together in real time. These instruments feature sound, visuals, and animations. A performance of a jumping, hovering, floating, dancing, and twirling Avatar Orchestra Metaverse is a truly spectacular event.

Avatar Orchestra performs regularly in Second Life and in mixed reality events at new media, music and visual arts centres in North America, Europe and Asia.

Orchestral Investigation #9 (Fragula) to be screened at Atopic Festival

Orchestral Investigation #9,
the wonderful video made by Evo Szuyuan (aka Brigit Lichtenegger) with a performance of AOM's Fragula, will be screened at the Atopic festival in France in the "Creative" section. Atopic Festival is the first French machinima festival and will take place at "La Cite des sciences" in Paris from 27 October till 4 november. The audience will select 3 video's that will be screened later at La Geode, a huge hemispherical IMAX.

Fragula has become one of AOM's signature pieces and continues to be a delight to play and to witness. It was composed by Milieu Takahe (aka Bjorn Eriksson) in 2007, with instruments, visuals and animations designed by Bingo Onomatopoeia (aka Andreas Mueller). The video was conceived and directed by Gumnosophistai Nurmi (Leif Inge) and Evo Szuyuan (Brigit Lichtenegger)
