Avatar Orchestra Metaverse on Odyssey

We are very happy to announce that the Avatar Orchestra Metaverse will be performing a concert of original compositions this Saturday March 26 at 12:30 PM SLT on Odyssey. Titled "This One's For You", this is a concert for Second Life audiences only - something a little different than AOM's renowned hybrid-reality events.

SaveMe puts the Fun in Fundraising

This month the illustrious SaveMe Oh presented her new piece - Screen Saver Art - a reprise of her Rezday performance - as Odyssey's first fundraiser. SaveMe performed for hours, an endurance piece, and audiences were generous, contributing thousands of Lindens towards Odyssey's maintenance. Many thanks to our audiences, patrons and especially to SaveMe Oh for her kind generosity!

A few images from the performance:

New Odyssey

In February of 2011 ownership of the Odyssey Contemporary Art and Performance Simulator was passed from its longtime sponsor - Dynamis Media Group - to the hands of fifteen Odyssey members. Odyssey now runs thanks to the commitment and support of the following people/avatars/groups: Alan Sondheim/Alan Dojoji, Neutral Ground/Soil Digital Media Suite, Pauline Oliveros/Deep Listening Institute/Avatar Orchestra Metaverse, Man Michinage/Patrick Lichty, Norman Lowry/North Zipper, Rose Borchovski, Jo Ellesmere, Evolutie Szuyuan, Pixel Reanimator/Andrew Stringer, Garrett Lynch, Nora Furlough, M4SK22 Melody, Oberon Omnura, Fau Ferdinand/Yael Gilks, Liz Solo/Black Bag Media Collective. All of these entities are making it possible for Odyssey to continue forward.

In this spirit of change the familiar Odyssey logo is being rejuvenated by Fau Ferdinand. Fau has added color, depth and dimension in the re-design. (original design by Sugar Seville).
