On occassion of my 50th birthday on Wednesday I played for the first time in thirty years live for an audience. Well, let’s say virtually life as the music was streamed into Second Life. The actual site of the event was Thorsten Küper’s and Kirsten Riehl’s steampunk location Kafé Krümelkram where I already took part in some successful single and group readings, the last one on Sunday together with Marco Ansing and Frederic Brake. For Thorsten and me this was a first test run to see how live music events can be organized in Second Life. Although quite a number of technical problems are still to be solved to actually perform a full-scale concert in Second Life, the first attempt was quite successful and well-received by a small but perceptive audience. More events like this are sure to come.
