and the SL Music...

LIVE MUSICIANS

XANDERNICHTING WRITER, VIOLONIST BY MELISSA ISLANDERS

There are plenty of musicians that play guitar and sing covers, but today I want to present you another kind of musician, a real original. Original by the instrument as XanderNichting Writer (aka Xander Nichting) plays a specially designed and built six chords electric violin. Also original as he plays mostly music of his own composition. Xander lives in the Netherlands, but I believe is has some origin in Romania, which could explain the gipsy side of his music. Graduated from the Conservatory in his home country, he continues to perfect his music abilities. He is now a solo artist, a music director, a composer and arranger and a violinist. He has been involved in the real Admire concerts that take place in his country every year now, concerts where SL artists meet and play in front of a real audience, but which concerts are also appearing in SL. He released a CD in 2009, called “Out of the Blue�. Xander has also being doing concerts with other artists like Yip Jannings who I wrote about in the first issue of our magazine. He also has double streamed with Tamra Sands, Jean Munro, Inchino Melson and also Maximilian Kleene.

He loves also playing keyboard and piano:he has an awesome 1920 ‘s Hofman-Khune piano on whose ivory keyboard he took his first jazz piano lessons...but the guitar was always on his way.When electronic music was accessible to his pocket he bought his first Roland hardware sequencer and a Roland synth and arranger.

Soon after he got a Yamaha like strato electric guitar with a 100 W Montarbo valve ampli. What a deal ! Four years ago he discovered the virtual stages in Second Life, packing all the inworld venues where he performs. His love for the jazz/blues genre comes through in his melodic verses and smooth rhythms.


He only performs original tunes but sometimes he sings in his own way some great songs:Springsteen’s “Devils and Dust” and Sergio Endrigo’s “Io che ho amo solo te” among his favourites.

What I basically do in SL is playing all the time... but I also like to go listen some good musicians, most of them are my close friends.I don’t like joking nor stupid people or stupid situations. Definitely I’m always looking for something Most of the original songs are licensed under interesting in SL.“ Creative Commons License and are free to download (some right reserved).

He has also I asked him how his brand new CD can represent recorded guitar and piano tracks for Jax Streeter, his world.”“Not Me” despite of the title,is all about Ezcape Hax and UKD Project songs. me and my music-he says-Definitely it’s a sort of escape:I put inside of it many of the things that Recently I met Swina on the occasion of the release happened both in my real and my second life of his new CD “Not Me” and he kindly agreed to (by the way I don’t think that they are so apart). answer to some questions. Some of the songs have been in my head for many months, but I was not able to finish them.In We started our conversation spending some words the last month I’ve been able to finally go through about SL.I asked him how did he discover SL and it: during last 4 weeks I recorded all the songs that what brought him inworld. were ideas.” “Just an accident that occurred to me -he says- I had some health problem and I had to stay at home I asked Swina to describe the sound of this new for one month month so I discovered SL reading CD :”I was looking for an essential sound. Most and surfing on the web” of the songs are based on blues (with some little funny funky riff ) and I tried to arrange the CD Then I asked if he ever thought to use his real name with the typical blues band instruments: drums, for what he usually does in Second Life:Swina says bass, keyboad (mostly organ or electric piano) that he has not any problem using his real name, and guitar.I think also that this solution gives more but basically his artistic life is strictly tied up to his room to the voice, to the lyrics that are simple as avie’s name that he liked so much too! always. I’m always very curious about what artists like to “Not Me” is a song about people who are no more do inworld, so I asked him about his experience able to really communicate each other.“Wanna in SL and what does he like to do when he’s not think that’s true” (a slow blues) is about the illusions playing.” that every impossible love brings with it.


“Shine Babe Shine” is a typical soul blues.Every song has a story to tell, not necessary about Swina, but also about his friends and the people he met in his real or second life.

I found that all the lyrics are very essential and I asked Swina the reason why.”It’s simple to answer to this question. Well, basically is that since english is not my language, sometimes is difficult to write down good lyrics. I’m used to start from a sentence that I like, or that I think is good for the song. I don’t spend so many time writing lyrics. Most of them was written in 1 hour or less, and I didn’t change later except some typical errors.

I asked him why he has also included 2 instrumental songs :”I love the sound of my new guitar, and I didn’t want to take off music with my voice.By the way in this CD I didn’t use any synth, brass or strings as I used in the past, and also the effects are very basic. I just wanted to have a simple sound in order Are you going to promote “Not Me” I finall asked to give more emphasys on lead guitar solo and on him?”Recording session is still in progress-swina lyrics “. answers- and I hope that the master version will be ready by the end of february. I asked Swina if is there any leading idea inside “Not Me” .”Definitely it’s all about music-he says- At the moment I’m playing the new CD during my Maybe you can find passion, emotions or nothing. live gigs in Second Life in order to find out what It is just the music that I want to play now and in the people think about it. near future (I think).

I like to available for download for free on my website, play over what I feel.” that’s the best promotion action I think.”

Which part of your job you like most ? GIANCARLO - For me is interacting with residents and learning from the different cultures :D. It still overwhelming after 3 years to meet sl residents and to hear that they have never seen anything like Costa Rica Sims. I must add that everything u see here and all we have acomplished would not have been possible without Ryker RYKER - It truly was Giancarlo’s vision for what this project could become that inspired me to contribute to it. I would have to say interacting with residents, specifically new residents who have never lived in Costa Rica before. I enjoy showing them all that our team has created and hearing how excited they are to live here, most say they have never had an experience like this in SL.


Costa Rica is a part of RL activity but today, as you said, is more than that. What kind of activities we can do in the different sims of Costa Rica ? RYKER - Initially it was connected to a RL travel company, but now it is purely based here in SL. There are over 15 amenities available for residents and guests, ranging from outdoor activities to community gatherings. Costa Rica is very big, i found lots interesting places and theese are activities that are popular in real life Costa Rica.

GIANCARLO - Costaricans are happy people by nature we are blessed in many ways, and yes dancing is very popular, he heh its funny to see the tourists trying to dance to native rythms RYKER - As a reflection of that here in SL, we have weekly events throughout the estate to encourage our residents to get to know one another.


It’s s a very well organized community, you are happy for this results ? GIANCARLO - It is amazing, we have residents from over 50 countries around the world :D RYKER - We also believe it is important to give back to the greater community at large so we have partnered with charitable organizations, such as the American Cancer Society, to support funding for cancer research and to one day find a cure this is another way in which we try to tie real life activities here in SL.. All funds from the sale of the butterflies go to the American Cancer Society. GIANCARLO - Exactly.

One of the most popular SL blogs of the net is Hi Lanai or our readers, what is Sl Enquirer ? can the SL Enquirer, a website full of news, contributes you give us some infos about this project ? and infos for sl lovers. Last day we met Miss Lanai Jarrico, the founder of this wonderful site. The SL Enquirer is SL’s longest running freelance news source that has catered to the Second Life community since 2005. We offer spotlight features on unique people and places with a variety of news topics that readers


can comment on and actively participate with our news. For Grand opening and upcoming events we accept news coverage, bookings and advertising on our website to help create awareness and boost businesses. For more information I recommend visiting our media center in world for a 3d feel of what we have to offer. In world we have our own fun events and sponsor promotional parties.

One important thing to know is SLE is an independent media source and we are not owned, part of, or affiliated with Second Life or Linden Lab. They are a registered trademark of Linden Research Inc, so no infrindgment is intended. All SLE staff are active residents of SL and report news from their own perspective, for The SL Enquirer.


SLE is an independent media source and we are not owned, part of, or affiliated with Second Life or Linden Lab. They are a registered trademark of Linden Research Inc, so no infrindgment is intended. All SLE staff are active residents of SL and report news from their own perspective, for The SL Enquirer.

How you discover your news ? I am not the only news gatherer for SLE but on occassion I may assign a story to one of the writers so I have to shine a spotlight on the SLE Family. The beauty of the SLE Enquirer is that it is not only my news , but a combination of interesting topics written by other writers. Each with their own personality and perspectives.

When you decide to start this adventure ? The original enquirer was launched October 4, 2004 in the virtual world The Sims Online and was known as The TSO Enquirer or “TSOE” by fans. It grew in readership by viral advertising and in 2005 I migrated to Second Life and changed the name to The SL Enquirer. It has been delivering news ever since.

I never pre plan my news line up, even though I have fresh news on the front page every Monday, because we never know what’s going to happen from one week to the next. Some news we take as it comes, others like spotlight features, event coverage and advertisements we book and post as well. You organize events too ?

Can you describe what we can find on Sl Enquirer ? I think The SL Enquirer has a laid back unique style. We aren’t affraid to tackle the topics others only whisper about and we keep it real. When I am not writing my own news I love to sit back and read what the other writers are experiencing and writing about. I like to think we relate to others in many ways and even bring a smile to their day. You can find all kinds of news topics in SLE from fun, humorous and leisure to charities, business and serious community topics and issues. What’s your activity in World ? For the most part, when I log into Second Life I can be found at the SL Enquirer Media center managing the paper from behind the scenes, or hiding behind some bushes at a little bistro listening to live music while I answer IMz. Besides that, I also maintain the website, manage staff and explore the virtual landscape for new and interesting things to write about.

Yes, We organize events on special occasions and holidays. As far as live music and parties, we are currently accpeting bookings for our concert grounds and rooftop club. Recently we just embarked on a new collaboration with Black Soul Rhythmes Radio. DJ Marjorie Dibou will be broadcasting live from the Media Center’s rooftop Chill lounge, every first tuesday of the month from 7-9pm slt. anyone can join the sl enquirer media group in world for event notices or subscribe to the website for the latest news alerts. Where can we find SLE in World ? you have an office ? Yes we have our main office on the beautiful Costa Rica Sims. The SL Enquirer Media Center: http://slurl.com/ secondlife/San%20Jose%20East1/246/96/23


And now somenthing about you, when you join SL Give 3 main reasons to follow SL Enquirer for the first time ? I joined Second Life back in May of 2005 with the great migration from The SIMS Online. I few friends had mentioned SL to me but I was still heavily immersed in the media in TSO until a team of freelance filmmakers contacted me and asked if we could do a documentary project together. They flew from France and we met up in my hometown for the project. During their visit they asked me to bring the newspaper to SL since there was already a buzz there about the tso enquirer. After some thought, I hoped on the banana boat and came here with many of the RP mafia families and changed the name to The SL Enquirer. Give our readers some news about what you like doing in SL in your spare time. Wow... In my spare time, if I can distinguish between work and play, is pretty much all in the same. Everything around me involves news, it creates inspiration for my passion for creative writing. That is what really motivates me and so do the people I hold dearest to me here in Second Life. If it wasn’t for all that have given their time to be a part of SLE and my SLife, I don’t think I could do this or be here because they have made this journey worth coming back to. Writing about Second Life and documenting this journey is just part of the whole experience.

1. Because we the most frequently updated SL news source available 2. We keep it real and to the point on issues. 3. We cover the news, you want to read about. The SL Family is currently made up of 14 active media personell, but we are always open to new writers so the list changes.

CLUB OF THE MONTH

BELLA VIDA VELVET JAZZ

In the past years we have worked very hard to create a place different from anything our guests experienced in second life before, a place where guests become family, but at the same time will be spoiled in a very luxurious setting. Established in 2008, Bella Vida Sim is a beautiful Mediterranean themed Sim, home to the Bella Vida Jazz Lounge opened 24hrs, with many Daily LIVE MUSIC events (ranging from jazz, blues to rock and pop), a romantic swan tour, La Mar Yacht club/Yacht with 3 levels for dancing, peaceful waterfall, wedding venue, and a Fashion Village with many of our top SL designers offering the latest in high fashion and couture. Bella Vida also presents popular themed events, most recently “Thy Knight Before Christmas� where guests were transported back in time to Medieval times.


Also popular was our Phantom of the Opera event, where our audience entered a spectacular setting of the Phantom stage. View our Calendar of Events to learn more about our Theme and other exciting events. Some of our milestones have been our Pink Charity Ball, where we raised approx.

400K for the American Cancer Society. You are cordially invited to join us for our formal dance and share a romantic moment at quite possibly the most opulent and beautiful venue in second life, Bella Vida Velvet Jazz Lounge.

We are an organization dedicated to bringing the public a great time. We believe in outreach and variety. DJs and Live Musicians in the group will have easy access to help if need be, but also to be amongst peers to share their music and beliefs amongst others within their same trade.


Club owners in the group will have quick and easy access to a wide variety of DJs and Live Musicians for whatever needs they may have. Club Owners can post notices on what they need reguarding music. PLEASE DO NOT POST EVENTS... ONLY DJ NEEDS!!! Please make sure in your notice you list.... »» Where and when you need a DJ or Live Musicians »» 100% tips and /or salary pay amount »» Contact info for who the DJs and Live acts need to respond to »» What type of music you are looking for (we have DJs and soon Live Musicians that are in many and every genre...this will help narrow down to good replies)

THE DJ NIGHT Besides these great benefits, DJ World provides a showcase of DJ talent by having a monthly showcase called DJ NIGHT. This is like a 12 hour marathon of 12 different DJs in the group, going for a set an hour each. This showcase is bought to you by AQUA LOUNGE, ARSENAL, BEYOND OBSESSIONS, IRONWORKS and a guest club.

Sennaspirit Coronet SL Photographer

AVATAR NAME Sennaspirit Coronet FLICKR STREAM http://www.flickr.com/photos/sennacoronet/ STUDIO Senna Image Studio http://slurl.com/secondlife/ Crinkle/162/225/29 CUSTOM WORKS Always available for private or commercial work, IM directly ADULT MATERIAL Sensual art yes, sexual shots no.


How you describe your Photo style ? and what kind of subjects you like ?

You took inspiration by RL and by famous Artist ?

I would say I shoot studio shots mostly, I try keep the essence of SL in the image(not transform to realistic looking image) but always with an eye on form, light, color. As for subjects, I mostly shoot Avatars and try to bring out their essence in images.

I have been influenced by many SL artists, they really inspired me in the early days, and still do, I learn from them all the time. RL artistic inspiration is similarly varied, but to name a few - Andrew Wyeth, Degas, Lautrec, Inges, Van Gogh, Sargent, Cezzane, and numerous photographers from the commercial world.


How did you discover Second Life and what made you create an account?

And when you discover the virtual photography art ?

I knew of SL from RL clients at leading global companies who had a presence in SL. I created an account to see what this virtual world had to offer them.

IIn late 2009 I discovered the Las Islas Republic when it was still under construction - there were so many authentic About a year after I started in SL I was having Xmas cards made by a photographer and after they finished, I asked if i could use their studio and I liked the results, so I started shooting from that point onward.


You do works for single people ? how can we get your photo shots ?

Tell us your story: what’s your interest ? what you like to do in SL for having fun ?

How can we get your photo shots ? I do personal portraits and business owners primarily as my business here in SL. I work purely on referrals and people can just IM me to set up a schedule to shoot.

Believe it or not, I shoot pictures for fun in SL - it’s what I really love to do. I shoot all the time. For fun I like to sail, fly planes and race cars - its very fun in SL. I really enjoy how creative the builders are in recreating these vehicles.


What have you been doing in SL ? What have you been up to or what have you created. My first year was spent exploring the virtual space and mostly meeting people. It was very enlightening to see what was possible. Once I discovered photography and art in general, this is how I spend all my time now, shooting for myself and commission work for clients. For fun I like to sail, fly planes and race cars - its very fun in SL. I really enjoy how creative the builders are in recreating these vehicles.

How SL let you improve your know how or skills ? SL let me rediscover my creative side which I had left dormant for many years. But since now, in addition to shooting images in SL, I have started painting again in RL which is most rewarding.

You work for some magazines ? Yes, I have worked for many magazines here in SL, but presently, my RL schedule makes that a bit difficult to do.


Have you some beautiful places to suggest our friends to explore and take pictures ? Too many to mention. I should have included the people who create wonder sims in my note about influences. Its quite amazing to see what they build for us to enjoy. I’d have to say any of AM Radio’s builds are among my favorite places.

Could you share a funny or awkward story that happened to you inSL ? Again too many to mention and some I won’t mention, but a story many of my flickr friends know is about a person named Crispin. I was shooting a model on a sim and as I’m shooting an AV rezzed right in the middle of my setup. I told him that we were shooting and asked him if he could move aside, but then it became clear that this was a new person and he really wasn’t all that familiar with SL. At first he didn’t move or answer me but then once he was able to move, he just stood near by and started asking me typical noob question in rapid fire. It was like having a 5 year old at work with you. He’s a really nice guy so instead of pushing him away, i just added him to the photoshoot, which was a challenge in itself since he wasn’t quite sure how to sit on pose balls or generally stay still. We’ve become good friends since and I always enjoy hearing about his adventures and doings in SL since that day.
