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.

Orchestra to Perform in Electrosmog Festival March 20


Tireless AOM member Gumnosophistai Nurmi (aka Leif Inge) has arranged with his friend Ze Moo for the Orchestra to perform a live concert March 20, 2010 in the Electrosmog International Festival for Sustainable Immobility in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

The ElectroSmog festival is a critique of the worldwide explosion of mobility, and an exploration of the new forms of connectedness with others offered to us by network and communication technologies.

What a perfect fit for the globally connected virtual bio mass that the orchestra has become.
