Join us at 2pm SLT today, Monday 3rd December, for the new episode of Designing Worlds at our studio in Garden of Dreams where we’ll be exploring the an amazing new region, created to demonstrate the potential and possibilities of sound in Second Life. And it’s a huge amount of fun too!

Of Sound Mind - there's a wealth of sounds here!

Of Sound Mind – there’s a wealth of sounds here!

Usually one goes to LEA (Linden Endowment for the Arts) sims to see the creations of Second Life’s best known (and sometimes newly discovered) artists.  Many will offer a high level of interactivity in their creations – some will offer sound as part of this.But Of Sound Mind goes further.  It’s an installation – more properly a series of installations – that references primarily sounds. It’s the creation of Lorin Tone and Friends (said friends including Glyph Graves, Madcow Cosmos, Inventor Alchemi, Mia Anais, Meriadne Merlin, P4ndor4 Quintessa, Marcus Parrott, Judi Newall, Chantal Harvey and Cube Republic).  There’s a wealth of different environments and sounds to explore – instruments to interact with … and, actually, some stunning things to see, ranging from a spooky cave to a giant musical castle in the air, from a Hindu temple with a wealth of musical instruments to an amazing total windsculpture by Glyph Graves.

We’ll be exploring as many of these as we can fit into the show, talking to Lorin Tone and some of the creators such as Glyph Graves, emSynth,  and Meriadne Merlin and – hopefully – inspiring you to pay a visit yourselves!

All this makes for a fascinating show – so make sure that you don’t miss it! Do come and join us at 2pm!
