Avatar Orchestra Metaverse
The New Economy – by Blaise DeLaFrance Voom

Using in-world instruments. The sounds grow stronger when the camera approaches.
Concerts are played with people all over the world.
Instruments are created specific for each piece. These instruments also feature visuals and
animations, and performances of a jumping, hovering, floating, dancing and twirling Avatar.

Orchestra Metaverse is a truly unique and spectacular event.
The Orchestra approach Second Life as an instrument itself.
The result is dependent on both the performers and the virtual environment
in which they play. (D, I, CA, USA, N, UK)
