Lotsa talk goin’ around about Raising The Profile Of SL Music ‘n shit. The thought behind it being, that music is what makes the metaverse a cool place to be. Without music, people say, it’s no more than a giant shoe-store where people hop on poseballs to engage in inter-avatar kinkiness or something.

Needless to say, that’s all a mindfuck.

It ain’t about raising a profile – fact is, that lotsa people in SL aren’t looking for music at all. They’ve got other things to do. Places to go, people to meet, stuff like that. So all that us performers can do, is give it all we’ve got. Each and every time.

In short: we’ve gotta be awesome. That’s all there is to it.

Today, we were invited to come and jam at a place that is sort of built like a dome, with pillars and stuff. And all over those pillars, and on the ceiling, and even on the floor, video footage of fractals and star systems and what-have-you were flying. Thus taking live music in SL to a whole new level. Big ups to Ms. Flimsey Freenote for the amazing lights and magick!

The place is called Inspiration Island and you can find it here. They got a kickass veejay there as well, and we get to jam there every two weeks from now on.

Yes. This was a lovely day.
