The most recent episode of the show is now available on the Designing Worlds website at the Treet TV archives – and can also be downloaded free of charge from iTunes.
In this show, we met the creator of some of the fascinating sounds of Second Life – Lorin Tone – who explained the ways in which sound works in the Second Life world – and showed 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!
So we saw the Bandbots, the fantastic SLurlitzer organ, and the Sloog Synthesiser … among many others!
As well as a serious discussion about the uses of sounds in virtual worlds, there was plenty of fun stuff too in the show as Lorin took us on a trip through his store and his workshop … and we got to experiment with sounds – and meet what must be the most unusual band even in Second Life!
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.
Don’t forget, even though our show is now called Designing Worlds, we are still doing our Meta Makeovers, where we bring in a top designer to make over your virtual home or garden!
So if you would like to have a virtual home or garden given the treatment by a top designer, send an email to us at firstname.lastname@example.org with three or four pictures of your home or garden attached, and stating your reasons why you would like a makeover.
And if you know a special place in Second Life that we should really feature on the show, drop us a line too!
