LEA24 - Echoes by Livio Korobase

Sat, 08/18/2018 - 00:25

Metaphysics of frequencies 
A return to nature as a fluctuating cosmic vision, resonating vibrations where matter is in continuous movement and space does not exist. It is the unifying force of subtle body and energy fields. 
Some "invisible" elements seem have a strong effect on matter. They are all the unseen, intangible, but we hear them, we feel them.. Every phenomenon is a material trace of the invisible forces that generated it, an indissoluble fusion of content and form, of interior and exterior elements. 
This time my exploration is dedicated to one of this elements: sound. 
How much do the "invisible" sounds influence our perception of the so called "reality" -are real or virtual  the same?  So, i created some ambients where sounds drives my vision, each sound resonating within me, a sensation that i have tried to translate into a 3D visual representation. 
It Is important during your visit to turn on your viewer's sounds and your volume up, and  use camera controls to change the "point of view" of each audio sequence. Wear headphones, use your best possible graphic card setting and good exploration. Good luck with horses and asteroids.

a tribute to

Eidola, LEA 24
closing event

When I started with Can I had a lot of critics who said we were
repeating all the time, and we didn’t have ideas.
But I think the repetition, you have to feel it.
With Can, for every tune we played I designed a special rhythm,
so each of the tunes had different rhythms. It’s not like
Rock rhythm. I stopped with all that. I’ve given up that old style
of – you can call it American drumming. American drumming, it was
and still is normal, everybody plays American. So that’s why
I don’t play what what to me is normal."
- Jaki Liebezeit

LEA7 - SALT - Eliza Wierwight

Eliza Wierwight16 June 2018
Hello everyone,
Welcome to the notecard I've been avoiding like the second coming of the plague. 
There are at least two fundamental options for viewing this work.
★Cruise through at your own pace & where mused savor salt at a visceral level.
★The more daunting version. The above plus all the damn yet potentially interesting Eliza notes that follow.
As my primary presence Inworld is commercial, I’ve not engaged in the luxury of  formal arts related work for quite some time,  and certainly never on this scale. 
I had formerly mused the idea that if I was ever to engage in art again, then this odd creature called 'salt' would evolve, needless to say those originally indiscriminate ideas morphed into something entirely else during the course of actually creating it.  Aided and abetted by a smaller project 'fourth position' I created on the fly for One Billion Rising earlier this year, which is woven into the foundation of sorts, though explored more expansively. This work is predominantly instinctual, much shuffling ensued, and therefore not tidy in philosophy. Perhaps problematic that I've been so enmeshed in the emotion of its creation that the premise of tying it up in a clever art historian-esque summary notecard type endeavors was always going to remain rather elusive to me. However this plays out, I had a moment of extreme personal catharsis during the creation of 'salt', and for that fact I remain grateful. Details in relation to this can be found in my comments regarding cultural influences other, in the secondary more expansive notes, if you're curious.
★Artist's statement on salt - framework
As a fuller Immersive piece the philosophy of salt presents this way, I invite you to consider the journey through the installation as experiencing-dining from a pre-set menu of somewhat unpalatable stories & truths. Some of my own, some not. Though all manifestly important to me irrespective of origin. I’ve quite deliberately misappropriating the term 'degustation', this imparted itself as an ideal transition, as each segment-course is a unique work of its own volition. There are however other threads that drift through the work, as I’ve permit myself a further interplay of symbolic references in relation to the accoutrements of sustenance. In the context of literal salt, a basic commodity that exists in most kitchens of the World, it became a metaphor for the things that wound us, a conduit.  Another thread meandering through this work, relates to the Japanese philosophy of Kintsugi, embracing the unique, flawed or imperfect. Life ingratiates itself with such hardship at times. 
If we are the wounded, then let us embrace where possible those challenges & scars, and in surviving them or in our empathy for others that do, see ourselves as the beauty. We are the fine art.

 MOOD SWINGS is a fun display of emotion is texture and color.
JudiLynn India is a 2D artist whose work is steeped in colorful textured abstraction. She often hears how her work affects the mood of the viewer. LEA10 brings all of that together in one place, likened to a giant ball pit of emotion!The ethereal and eclectic sounds of UltraViolet Alter blend wonderfully with the visual. It is a pleasure to collaborate with Ultra.PLEASE JOIN US AND ENJOY THIS EVENT AT LEA::

LEA6-Machinima Open Studio Project by Chic Aeon

Fri, 06/01/2018 - 09:41

What's New - June
The big news this month is the opening of a full sim sized installation with a fantasy desert theme. Sanoria first debuted at Fantasy Faire. It has now been moved and enhanced -- and of course the designer buildings have been removed.  The story quest remains. Find information at the landing point-   And while you are exploring and finding the messages of the ancient, keep your eye out for a gift.

The second bit of excitement comes in a new video that let's you see some of the many locations at MOSP.

Find the video here:

Newness in Terradale (ground level) includes the beginnings of a bakery in one of the village shops.

Horses have appeared here and there in the countryside.

Also in progress, a different kind of desert themed installation. So exotic!

 And for you city folks, there is an impressive new drinks maker and giver in the brownstone kitchen.  Just one of many new details scattered among the levels.

Explore and find your favorite spots!

Celebrate the renewal of Spring with Ultraviolet Alter & Tansee as they take you on a Journey into a "Time Slip".   
For the lovers of  atmospheric, dimensional, evocative, generative, ethereal music in SL.you will not want to miss the brilliant Live performance by French Artist & Musician Ultraviolet Alter sharing her amazing RL piano and instrumental skills..  Performance is in a special original build by Tansee who will also be providing her live soft visual art that will unfold to Ultra's music. Prepare to arrive in the "darkness"  (literally)  to begin the Journey.  The build is designed for High Graphics and a Midnight setting.
The title of the Event "Time Slip" is one of 10 original compositions specifically made for the LEA8 "Journey To Ultama" sim created by Ultra, Tansee and Mandel Solano.  Her music can be heard from her own stream 24/7 until the sim closes May 31.  There is a sitting area on ground level that has RL photo's of just of few of the most interesting sound instruments that Ultra uses to bring her passion for composition to SL.      
Ultra is a long time resident of SL and at times has been mistaken for a DJ when in reality the each performance is live from her studio in France requiring much concentration, discipline and coordination using multiple keyboards, computers, ipads, synthesizers and her array of unusual and unique instruments.including the magical Le Cristal Baschet along with Cloud Chamber Bowls.  One instrument uses the vibration of the glass that is passed to a heavy tuned block of metal that determines the pitch and  cones that amplify sound to higher frequencies.   
Ultra describes her music.  "It is not as easy as "hit play" rather I must abandon my greater intelligence and  immerse myself into the freedom of restrictions of daily life, using my imagination. It's like a co-creation in a fantastic world to bring my music for people all over the planet."
 Ultra's musical intuition and Tansee's graceful art is sure to sweep you into a relaxing Time Slip Journey of imagination. Be sure to see the sim art creations of Ultra and Tansee as well as fellow artist and sim owner Mandel Solano by using the TP system to the different levels while enjoying her very intoxicating  music.
