Odyssey Art and Performance Simulator has housed a remarkable array of artists who are pushing the edges of art and identity in the virtual world Second Life.
The Avatar Orchestra Metaverse began at Odyssey in 2007, and is rehearsing there now in preparation for its July 2013 performance at the first annual Deep Listening Art and Science Conference in Troy, New York.
Odyssey is funded by the artists who use it, and is voluntarily managed currently by artist Liz Solo. AOM is excited to host this event to help raise funds for Odyssey’s continued existence, to thank Liz and previous managers (Sugar Seville, Helfe Ihnen and Fau Ferdinand) and to reflect on our shared time in Second Life together .
We invite you to immerse yourself with AOM
Friday June 14, 12 noon SLT
at Odyssey …
… where you will be greeted individually, serenaded by the ethereal tones of AOM voices and instruments and invited to join us …
… lounging, breathing, sounding, and bouncing around with flying fruit, giant chickens and other fantastic creations designed by AOM set builder Frieda Kuterna aka Frieda Korda. In exchange for donations to Odyssey, you will receive a unique AOM instrument conceived by vocalist-sound artist Viv Corringham aka Zonzo Spyker and built by AOM luthier extraordinaire Norman Lowrey aka North Zipper.
See you there!
