The Avatar Orchestra Metaverse is a global collaboration of composers, artists and musicians that approaches the virtual reality platform Second Life as an instrument itself. The Orchestra conceives, designs and builds its own virtual instruments, making it possible for each individual performer in the Orchestra to trigger sounds independent from one another and to play together in real time. These instruments feature sound, visuals, and animations. A performance of a jumping, hovering, floating, dancing, and twirling Avatar Orchestra Metaverse is a truly spectacular event. Avatar Orchestra performs regularly in Second Life and in mixed reality events at new media, music and visual arts centres in North America, Europe and Asia. http://avatarorchestra.blogspot.com/ Members appearing in Mysterium Magnum: Bingo Onomatopoeia, aka Andreas Müller (Regensburg, Germany) BlaiseDeLaFrance Voom, aka Biagio Francia (Agropoli, Italy) Carolhyn Wijaya, aka Carolyn Oakley (Boulder, Colorado, USA) DanCoyote Antonelli, aka DC Spensely (San Francisco, California, US Flivelwitz Alsop, aka Tim Risher, (Durham, North Carolina, USA) Free Noyes, aka Pauline Oliveros (Kingston, NY, USA) Gumnosophistai Nurmi, aka Leif Inge (Oslo, Norway) Humming Pera, aka Tina M.
