Live ORIGINAL music is alive in Second life daily!

This is my favorite aspect of Second life, going to hear live music in a virtual world.

Such a great way to hear so many talented people. Musicians often have studios in their homes and will stream their practice sessions or shows into Sl.

What a wonderful way to get your original music globally played.

People from all over the globe log into Second life to catch shows all day long.

I really enjoy unwinding after work with a live performance escaping into the creativity of many musicians.

Winston Ackland isn’t new to the music scene playing for over 20 years.

His musical career bridged Sl and Rl when his cover of  “Lithium” was used in The 20th century Fox film “Marley and Me” and again when Winston’s cover of “Psycho Killer” was used in Oliver Stone’s “Savages”

Winston’s Newest project is a collaboration between friends called Wonderland Diner.

Pol Arida‘s `Hammer` Guitar style is widely regarded as unique, where the guitar is hit hundreds of times per minute to produce a multi-instrument sound.

“One of the most unique Guitarists on the planet” NME
“out on his own as a songwriter” BBC Radio
“Pain in the Ass” His Mum
“When all around us appears false then the only thing left is to think.” POL
