Big Newz from Tansee!

Dear Friends, As many of you know, my priority for Second Life Endowment for The Arts has always been to build a solid, organized foundation and then step back into a quiet role as an advisor. It is with great pride that I announce to you the time has finally arrived! It is my pleasure to announce your new SLEA Coordinator – Regi Yifu. Regi has been an active SLEA core volunteer, manager, and Liaison since October of 2020 when this project first began.

In Second Life he is a self-described gregarious bohemian, a well-known DJ, designer, builder, artist, owner of long time in-world and MP store, Regimade and generous “gift giver”….

Vocaloids at SLEA MusicLAB Lazy Sunday Show

Konnichiwaa! A VOCALOID “vocalist”, “character”, or “mascot” (unofficial terminology) refers heavily to an illustrated character of a VOCALOID™-powered voice bank, although a product name or miscellaneous representation (like an avatar) can be included.

From a technical point of view, Vocaloid (ボーカロイド, Bōkaroido) is a singing voice synthesizer software product. Its signal processing part was developed through a joint research project led by Kenmochi Hideki at the Pompeu Fabra University in Barcelona, Spain, in 2000 and was not originally intended to be a full commercial project. Backed by the Yamaha Corporation, it developed the software into the commercial product “Vocaloid” that was released in 2004.

From a creative point of view, this technology has allowed the birth of real celebrities as Hatsune Miku, which has been producing music and amazing live shows with enormous success for years, to the point that recently a fan of hers wanted to marry her even though she is a hologram.

Hatsune Miku and friends

When i say unbelievable success, i’m not kidding: her song World is Mine has entered the worldwide top 10 of the most downloaded singles on iTunes since its first week on sale.

Miku al David Letterman show

Obviously Hatsune and his family also have admirers in Second Life, avatar replicas of holograms. Isn’t that a beautiful short circuit?

A whole sim dedicated to vocaloid, Hatsune Miku’s Vocaloid World, spread this passion which is expressed in wild concerts. You can find video, pitcures and infos at dedicated site SL Anime Stars.

I am therefore very happy that a date of their worldwide (virtual) tour is hosted by MusicLAB, an honor. Thank you!

WoodCrest Performing Arts Special Exhibit and Show ‘FLOURISH’ at SLEA

Follow the gallery exhibit to theater entrance.

We invite you to a unique exhibit showing for 5 days only through Saturday August 13. ‘Flourish’ is both an art installation created as a precursor to a fantastic show to presented by our friends at WCPA.

Woodcrest University is an urban RP (roleplay) community found in the London Docks and Woodcrest sims in Second Life. The university and town are both fictional. However, we strive to emulate a “real world” setting in contemporary North Carolina. WoodCrest University is one of the oldest Role Play universities in Second Life.

The students and teachers of the Performing Arts class in the university have for over 3 years been teaching how to design, create and stage dance in Second Life and putting on around 3 shows a year at the university.
Lead by instructors Red Woods and Leninah Starlight the class has started to forge a relationship with SLEA and the ‘Flourish’ show is the second collaboration following on from the event at the ‘Crystal Carnival’ last year.

Based on the concept outlined above, added especially for the SLEA show there is the ‘Flourish Gallery’ which contains representations of each of the 11 pieces of inspirational art from which the show is derived. Each piece in the gallery has an info point where you can see and learn about the inspiration. Then at the show itself you can see for yoruself what that choreographer saw and did with the inspiration the art provided when it flourishes into a fully stage produced dance routine with music, set and dance.

The descriptions around the Gallery, which you can see by clicking the plaque on each log by the info point are as follows:
