It was a very interesting evening as I sat at my computer.. I decided to work on my new tunes online in SecondLife. I fired up NiceCast and had a few close friends tune in. It took me one hour to record two songs. The third song was giving me trouble.. and realized that it was 11pm Pacific.. and I was tiring out. Totally fun for me to do.
I got a brain blast that maybe next time, I'll invite members of my group online to come and listen to live sessions when I am feeling like sharing and recording too. More to come...
Peace in Music,

My next concert is on the World Stage at the MMAC in SecondLife. I look forward to this because its a concert series with my piano sponsor SZ Pianofabrik pianos. I use them most often in world. I have about 7 pianos in Secondlife, plus some flutes, and a keyboard. Yes it IS odd that I would play there.. but during the school year it is very difficult to get out of the house and play at "brick and mortar" venues.
On Friday June 1, 2007 7pm - 10pm... I will be playing my first summer "brick and mortar" concert. It will be SO much fun! The picture that I have included is from a concert I did there a few years ago. Hopefully, I have improved! So.. if any of you live in the SoCal area... come visit that night.

I had the opportunity to play at Bliss Gallery last night. We had a HUGE turnout. Lots of good people. The venue was bringing out the emotions in me. For those of you that don't know, I play online concerts quite regularly in SecondLife. If you have NOT seen it yet. I would go over there and give it a shot. The picture I am putting here is what my avatar looks like in world.
Back to the concert. Nubian was a bit nervous.. and I was too, but she and I had the opportunity to talk earlier Saturday and I felt something from her. As she told me about a VERY personal bad experience, she expressed that things would start to get better. I decided to write her a song to incorporate into my concert. I was feeling a bit emotional anyway.. and so I worked on it.
I had NO IDEA how well the concert would go. It was like the art scene really inspired my performance. My Manager... AJ Trumbo, told me it was my best concert yet.. and felt he had seen/heard my best concert. Very exciting to say the least. I am glad we had no griefers.. ( people that like to make mischief). I am looking forward to going to Chicago and playing LIVE for the SecondLife Community Convention in August.
More to come....
