As part of the Lazy Sunday Show, a weekly event and space set up by the MusicLab organized in the SLEA region (Second Life Endowment for the Arts – organization supporting creation in Second Life), the artists A Limb (Be) & Livio Korobase (It) offering a sound and multimedia event: The Most Bizarre Avatar, an avatar fashion show.
Models – you?! – propose their representation of the most bizarre avatar. There will be a catwalk, a jury (whose vote will be worth two points) and all those present will be able to vote for their favorites (one point each catwalk).
Each catwalk will be accompanied by a particular soundscape, performed live and on the spot by musician of interplanetary fame A Limb.
Jury: Tutsy Navarathna, Hobbit Zenfold Staheli and Shuggah Stupor.
Registration: fill the form with the required data until one day before the start. For last minute registrations, contact Renee Rebane in world. We need also a picture of you for the voting system, send us in world (Livio Korobase or Renee Rebane). Be ready in place one hour before the event.
A LIMB (Be)
Didié Nietszche (Radio Prague, 48 Cameras, Lamaφ) solo project. A Limb (BE) is a kind of artistic Frankenstein, exhuming all sorts of music corpses from their graves, stitching an ambient body with funk legs, punk feet, experimental arms, jazz hands, a drone head, inserting a big ethnic music heart and krautrock lungs… then bathing the whole “body” in a dub bath, until an electro thunderbolt strikes him and he is… alive! Yes sometimes science goes too far, but it is too late to go back.
A Limb aime aussi expérimenter sur sa propre peau, se changeant régulièrement en singe mutant, en boule à facettes, en lapin danseur, en lézard extraterrestre… A Limb joue régulièrement au Cat’s Circus, Burn 2 (version virtuelle officielle du Burning Man) et pour plusieurs événements spéciaux ; il est souvent accompagné par un visuel live de SaveMe Oh (PB).
Livio Korobase (It) - Performance
Livio Korobase is an old sound addicted country gentleman that loves music and vibrations, preferably the good ones. He began his career as a musician, playing with a bass of an unknown brand. After receiving the stigmata on the fingertips, he moved on to computers, Atari ST, and began to self-hypnotize with patterns and sequences.
His work explores the relationship between Bauhausian sensibilities and copycat violence. With influences as diverse as Rousseau and Joni Mitchell, new combinations are manufactured from both orderly and random layers. He is fascinated by the essential unreality of meaning. What starts out as contemplation soon becomes corrupted into a tragedy of lust, leaving only a sense of decadence and the unlikelihood of a new reality. As subtle replicas become distorted through diligent and critical practice, the viewer is left with a tribute to the inaccuracies of our culture.
He is also a frequent user of random artistic text generators…
The Second Life Endowment for the Arts (SLEA)
The Second Life Endowment for the Arts (SLEA) was established to help create a center of arts activity in Second Life. It is a collaborative venture between Linden Lab and the arts community, guided by a dedicated group of volunteers and Second Life artists. Coordinators will be evaluated bi-annually, and a Linden approved list of Liaisons assist the Coordinator.

Comment assister à l'événement ?
Please note: attending this event live requires registration in Second Life, downloading software and getting started with it (you will easily find tutorials on the Web depending on the software downloaded). We advise you to do the necessary at least one day before the event in order to familiarize yourself with the sometimes not very intuitive controls of this software. For those who would not be able to connect to Second Life, a video streaming solution on Youtube is under consideration. It will also be possible to follow the concerts in audio streaming.
