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.

Par une belle nuit lunaire, ayant travaillé à mes sculptures , je vais me coucher auprès de ma femme qui dort depuis longtemps. Je commençais à m'endormir lorsque de violents coups retentissent à ma porte . En catastrophe , je me lève cours voir ce qu'il se passe . Devant ma porte se tient ma voisine de palier ,l'éminent professeur Ama Avro  tenant une pile de livre sous le bras , son perroquet sur l'épaule vosciférant qu'il faut absolument partir très vite car un danger imminent nous menace . Promptement je cours réveiller ma femme et réuni quelques affaires. Tous les trois , nous gagnons l'aire d'envol de notre vaisseau cargo et partons à la vitesse de la lumière vers la galaxie M 51 .
 Nous sentant assez loin de la terre , nous nous mettons en position géostationaire . Après un rapide scan , nous nous apreçevons que nous ne sommes que deux vaisseaux à avoir pu echapper a cette catastrophe. Nous établissons très vite le contact avec l'autre vaisseau .  A son bord , Thanos Runer , éminent professeur de dessin , spécialiste du corps humain est présent .
Plusieurs jours après , n'ayant décelé aucune trace de vie sur terre ,nous nous rendons a l'évidence que nous sommes les uniques rescapés...
En effet le professeur Ama Avro , nous expliquera que la nuit de notre départ précipité , alors qu'elle travaillait dans son laboratoire , ses détecteurs d'analyse d'air , lui ont signalé la présence d'un gaz toxique se répendant dans l'air.
Je me souviens , moi aussi cette nuit là , d'une information anormale diffusée par la radio:  Deux éminents chimistes du centre de recherche international sont portés disparus .
Y a t'il un lien entre ce gaz toxique et la disparition de ces scientifiques ?
N'ayant plus aucun espoir de retour, nous décidons de nous installer dans cette galaxie !
Un jour , alors qu' Ama Avro scanait la terre à la recherche d'une trace de vie quelconque , elle decouvrit à l'intérieur d'une pyramide la présence d'eau et d'air .
Elle decida se s'y rendre et de procéder à une analyse de ses composants , quelle fut notre joie à son retour , lorsqu'elle nous annonça, que l'eau et l'air étaient parfaitement purs !
L'espoir d'une vie nouvelle enfin revint .
Après de nombreuses recherches et expériences , elle réussit à recréer dans des " biobulles" des végétaux , (des arbres , des fleurs , des légumes) et mêmes des animaux .
En attendant de pouvoir nous réinstaller sur Terre et recréer une vie nouvelle dans la paix et l'amour , nous continuons nos activités respectives Artistiques  que nous vous invitons à découvrir dans  notre colonie .

Indeed Professor Ama Avro, we explain that the night of our hasty departure, while working in his laboratory, his analysis of air detectors, he noted the presence of a toxic gas répendant in air.
I remember too that night, an abnormal information from the radio: Two eminent chemists of international research center are missing.
Is there a link between the toxic gas and the disappearance of these scientists?
No longer any hope of return, we decided to settle in this galaxy!
One day, while that Ama Avro scanait earth looking for any trace of life, she discovered inside a pyramid the presence of water and air.
She decided to go there and to conduct an analysis of its components, what was our joy at his return, when we announced that the water and air were perfectly pure!
The hope of a new life finally returned.
After extensive research and experience, she managed to recreate in "biobulles" plants (trees, flowers, vegetables) and even animals.

LEA4- Le Nuvole Cadute presentano Epica- Friday May 18th

Fri, 05/11/2018 - 12:27
http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/LEA4/128/128/36Friday, May 18th Italy at 22.30, England at 21.30, SL hour 13.30 (1:30 pm)
LE NUVOLE CADUTE

Epica rappresenta il classico conflitto tra il bene e il male che ha caratterizzato la storia dell’umanità. A questa storia daremo i contorni della fantasia mostrandola attraverso immagini e testi che daranno risalto alla nostra esposizione teatrale. Valori contrastanti, uno che arreca un danno all’altro, dove alla ricerca del senso morale, l’azione  o il pensiero non sarà conforme a principi etici. Usiamo il termine Male per fotografare più situazioni legate ad un disagio , mentre ci avvaloriamo del Bene per tentare di sconfiggerlo. Viviamo nella convinzione ottimistica che il Bene possa sempre e comunque battere il Male,ma il più delle volte è solo un appuntamento rimandato alla prossima occasione certi che prima o poi verrà eliminato. E’ una speranza che ci aiuta a vivere e forse chissà se non ci fosse il Male ,anche il Bene vedrebbe offuscata la sua luce.

LE NUVOLE CADUTE

"Epica" represents the classic conflict between good and evil that has characterized the history of humanity. To this story we will give the contours of fantasy by showing it through images and texts that will emphasize our theatrical exhibition. Contrasting values, one that causes harm to the other, where in the pursuit of moral sense, action or thought will not conform to ethical principles. We use the term Evil to photograph more situations related to an inconvenience, while we validate the Good to try to defeat it. We live in the optimistic conviction that the Good can always and always beat Evil, but most of the time it is only an appointment postponed to the next occasion sure that sooner or later it will be eliminated. It is a hope that helps us to live and maybe who knows if there were no Evil, even Good would see its light blurred.

No Bounty Hunters Allowed during that time frame. The Band Biography promises to be an entertaining read and will be available the day of the Event.

About The Artist
Mandel Solano is a Swedish VR artist that has done extensive original works with his very identifiable style using lights, mirrors, projections, shadowing, bumpy, shiny and a some original unique methods using his own textures.

It is "Highly Recommended" to explore the multi level installation with a pre-visit prior to the special event.  For those new to SL there is help available to set your Graphics to really consume the depth of this build.  For the seasoned explorer, High Graphics is a must,,, Ultra is BEST and enable Sun, Shadows, Projections. The build was created using midnight, but you will always find something interesting experimenting with all the environment settings. There is also a short tutorial explaining the Graphics settings located at the bottom and top level of the build.

For the photo enthusiasts this build promises to provide you infinite possibilities of a great photo ops.

Be sure to grab one or all of the Free Light Hats that will reveal some very special surprises as you explore this build as well as a Free Face Light tester.

LEA28 - Untitled, installation by Storm Septimus is now open

Sun, 04/15/2018 - 10:53


Untitled at LEA28
Storm Septimus has this to say about the installation:

Untitled is a dark, extraordinary, and powerfully immersive environment open to everyone to explore. As a destination it reflects the darker corners of the mind, with deep provocative imagery throughout. This installation is emotionally and visually hard hitting. There is an extensive note card available at the landing point to help visitors gain a thorough understanding of the build. 

 This installation is not the most performance friendly work either. Its a very complex layered build which has issues in some places with loss of frame rates and/or not fully loaded pieces. This ranges wildly between users as of course some people's machines are higher end than others.And some people have no issues at all, whereas others find it absolute torture.  But I wanted to add this note because I am aware of the issues and its worth mentioning that if someone is expecting a smooth experience they are probably in for a shock.  
 Also worth mentioning that the build has an area dedicated to the work of Virtual Ability. They were kind enough to give me a bundle of info about the support they offer in second life to its disabled users. Which is something I would very much like to highlight as it could help someone greatly.

 Find the gateways at the main MOSP backstage lot info building:
https://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/LEA6/109/58/1003
Two new full but "in progress" areas are now open to the public. While not nearly complete, there are open skies and buildings to explore.  Above is "Off the Grid" where power is self generated or done without.



The second full sim offers quiet and contemplative spaces in a serene locale -- or a backdrop for some rock climbing; take your pick.


An updated version of Deep Blue Fantasy is back, just in time for Fantasy Faire blogging and vlogging and perhaps a machinima featuring flights of imagination. This is a 64 meter blue sky pod installation.



Another pod aptly named "A Country Summer's Day" features flowers, gardening, picnics and a flowing stream.
 Go forth and film!

LEA24 ~ Eidola ~ by Livio Korobase has opened

Fri, 03/16/2018 - 08:13


https://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/LEA24/84/105/21
Pythagoras (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pythagoras) believed that we could see because the eye emits rays of light,  and that these rays gave the viewer information about colour and shape.

By contrast, Democritus (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Democritus) believed that every object emits numerous replicas of itself., called eidola (singular: eidolon). He believed these eidola entered the eyes of anyone looking at an object, allowing them to see it..

Leonardo da Vinci (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leonardo_da_Vinci) was equally fascinated by vision. Although his ideas changed over time, he broadly believed in an infinite rain of rays coming from every direction, which were translated by the eye - a simple structure of two concentric spheres - so that we could perceive and understand shape and colours in the things around us.

However, it was Johannes Kepler (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johannes_Kepler) who, in 1604, offered the first theory of the retinal image as we now understand it.
Meanwhile, Gestaltism (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gestalt_psychology) attempts to explain that perception goes beyond the sensory elements, and the brain does more than just assemble the pieces.

My work is an attempt to put a little 'order among these many different ideas' to try to understand if all this information is valid even in a virtual world. I do not have the answer, maybe someone finds it.

The installation is inspired by Ruggero Pierantoni's book, "L'Occhio e l'idea" (Boringhieri 1981). Like the book, it is organised into five chapters, each one taking its title from the index of the book.

To fully experience this installation, visitors should have a basic understanding of how to use the viewer's camera (e.g. ALT-left mouse button to rotate the camera), and should follow the path. For those who might be short of time, teleports are available, connecting the chapters. 

Enjoy your visit!

LEA29 - Gem Preiz presents DEMIURGE, opening March 15th at 2pm SLT

Wed, 03/14/2018 - 11:08





Teleport: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/LEA29/149/145/22


This exhibition follows  SAPIENS, presented in January 2018, and which will remain open until the end of June, 2018

SAPIENS ended on the vision of the Man understanding his universe and learning to dominate it.

In DEMIURGE, the Man becomes creative and shapes his environment, for the good or for the evil.

The installation consists in 3 parts, each one built on a sim-wide space, evoking the past, the present, and the future. 

- The "Past", made in the mood of the " dream of the architect ", accumulates in a unique vision the inheritance of many periods and regions. Human vestiges show here and there how high was the price paid for these glorious testimonies of the History. Certain monuments host fractals which the visitor will discover in the course of the exploration. The biggest exhibition hall contains also a teleport spot leading to the following place.

- Between an idealized Past and the promise of radiant and asepticized Future, the "Present" displays a symbolic vision of the current life conditions of more than 50% of mankind, obtained at the cost of the depletion of natural resources and the endangerment of our common planet. The exhibition hall shelters two series of fractals (the one resuming the theme of wild urbanization, the other one evoking the seek for progress, modernity and the conquest of new spaces) as well as the teleport spot towards the last place.

- using pure lines and vertiginous skyscrapers, the "Future" finally gives a stylised representation of a connected futuristic world already announced by all westernized big cities skylines and business downtowns. Under the exhibition geode, visitors will meet with what could be the future of the Man, ultimate stage of his development or price to pay for this aseptized future, everyone will judge about it. In the same place, a teleport spot will bring visitors back to the welcome hall.


Fractals

Overall, the installation contains 32 high-resolution fractals, each one made of several plates carefully stuck together. Some of them have already been displayed on Secondlife, in various other exhibitions. I intentionally re-used them, in a sepia-colored version, as being part of my own past.


 How to visit

Comply with the settings recommendations for a better visit :

- graphics « High » or even « Ultra »  if possible

- Windlight : from the opening of "Demiurge" until end of June, default windlight mode is positioned on "Realistic 6 pm", which I recommend as one of the best windlight for the ground environment. However, I recommend changing the windlight according to the information given in local chat when arriving on the other places "Past", "Present" and "Future". But as other windlights give interesting results, I invite you to test some by yourselves.

- Particles Maximum

- Draw distance: minimum 500, maximum 700. to be set depending on the neighbouring sims builds.

Use double click to reposition yourself is so you wish


Music

Turn your stream on for the music, composed of the following pieces :
- Provenance (Trevor de Maere)
- Interval (Ninja Tracks)
- Splinter (Ninja Tracks)
- Conduit (Ninja Tracks)
- In the end (Marcus Wagner)


Enjoy your visit
