Avatar Orchestra Metaverse (AOM)
is a global collaboration of musicians, media-artists and sound artists, who meet in the virtual space of Second Life to explore the boundaries of space and music. Although being globally distributed (Canada, USA, Italy, Germany, Sweden, Norway and Japan), they meet to play and work together in real-time. They do not try to imitate a conventional orchestra, but use the new medium as an instrument, where the generation of a sound can also trigger movements and graphics. The result is a new audio-visual experience, where the audience is witnessing a live-event, played by musicians thousands of miles apart.
