Remember the cute little horn coglet pet that Saffia wore on the second of the SL6B shows? Today we get to meet the creator of it – Lorin Tone – who will be explaining the ways in which sound works in the Second Life world – and showing us some of the sounds he has created – and the remarkable instruments (designed by Madcow Cosmos) that he has created to play them – or rather to whistle, toot, blow, and bang them out in many cases!
As well as a serious discussion about the uses of sounds in virtual worlds, there is plenty of fun stuff too in the show as Lorin takes us on a trip through his store and his workshop … and we get to experiment with sounds – and meet what must be the most unusual band even in Second Life!
You can see the show live by joining our viewing party at the Designing Worlds studios on Northpoint. As always, there’s a special gift for everyone who comes to the studio – and today it includes the special little horn coglet shown at the top of this page!
As usual, there’s an exhibition to see in our Hall outside the studio – showing the work of designers who have featured in the series. And at the moment, you can still explore the remarkable Middle Passage Experience (as seen in our show on July 14th) outside the studio to the west.
The show starts at 2pm SLT, but you should be in our Northpoint studios by 1.30pm to make sure of getting a seat.
