Hi, everyone! sorry for another mass email, but the flight that Pauline & Ione were supposed to get on had technical difficulties, so they were booked onto a later flight and won't get to Chicago in time for the performance. We are rescheduling the performance for later or over the wkend. I will know more later, when they arrive and can touch base with the director of the festival. Hopefully, more of you will be able to join us, if it's rescheduled for later or over the wkend. :-)

more anon...

A mixed-reality improvisation between performers in the virtual world of Second Life and performers in Real Life at the International Society of Improvised Music (ISIM). ISIM is an interdisciplinary conference that brings together performers, educators, researchers, students and community members from across the world, in an effort to recognize improvisation as a powerful tool for achieving this integration.

In this session, Second Life avatars will dance with improvised music from Real Life at ISIM. Real Life performers are Pauline Oliveros - electronics, harmonica & small instruments with spoken word artist Ione & dancer Heloise Gold. Second Life performance will feature animations and choreography by Josephine Dorado, John D. Mitchell, Edo Paulus, Christine Benham, Lauren Watson and Sean Nevin - performing from Arizona, New York, and Amsterdam. Images and sounds of the performers from Real Life will be projected into Second Life and vice versa, creating a mashup of real and virtual improv for both audiences.
