Transmusicales 2008

Flyer for Transmusicales 2008

Flyer for "Transmusicales 2008"

In 2007, a great concert was organized both in virtual and physical world. The physical (real life) concert that was performed in the city Rennes in the North-West of France, was at the same time broadcast in Second Life

This year, Transmusicales has higher aspirations in offering three concerts this year in a row, during which avatars can see and enjoy videoprojections live on a giant screen. There will also be “in real life” an experimental mixed reality to discover virtual worlds “without use of the keyboard and mouse” to the audience.

Beware: the access is limited to 60 seats per concert and it is recommented to make reservations on the websites: sldirect or Transmusicales 2008

Members and known supporters of the Bibliothèque Francophone are in the team of volunteers who prepare the city for concerts and transport. The contact for the project is the avatar by the name of “Clap Clip” Second Life.

Smitsol Finesmith is reading Proust. (Film by Hugobiwan Zolnir)

Of about 20 avatars that have read a page of Prousts “A la cherche de les temps perdu”, Smitsol made an even greater effort, as he was the only non-speaking french at the mandala stage, who had learned his text all phonetically. Well done!!

A great report in french is to read here.

Proust: The Kiss of the Matrix

With “The Kiss of the Matrix” Véronique Aubouy proposes to more than 3000 people worldwide to read in front of their web-camera a page of “A la Recherche du temps perdu” by Marcel Proust. After this experience, all of the words have been read in french, by people of all backgrounds, what will provide a film of approximately 170 hours.

The web-shooting will take place live on the Internet from September 27, 2008 twelve o’clock GMT. It is open to all. Véronique Aubouy invites you today to register on her blog and you are free to  invite friends to build a network of “Kiss of the Matrix.”

On 8 October 2008, the Bibliothèque Francophone in Second Life will join the reading by inviting 30 avatars who will all read a part of the text in the grounds of Ebeoplex, while they have taken place on a giant mandala.

Of course, as curious as we are, Véronique Aubouy is willing to tell all who is interested about her project on Friday 4 September at the Bibliothèque Francophone.

The “Sail Away” project (2)

Rafale Kamachi has a small production company based in Wales, Hilight Ltd, and in this background she has started to produce a innovative film project.

The full length animation film (machinima), Sail Away, will be all the way filmed in Second Life, on the isle of Remember. And it will be taken in at least French and English.
Although there is no budget at all for this very exciting and huge project, all builders, scripters, designers, directors and all others work very hard to make this movie reality.

The Bibliothèque Francophone is very happy to support Rafale Kamachi in this beautiful project and has dedicated a part of the garden to “Sail Away”. Feel free to come and see.
