Overnight for Dreaming Avatars

Tonight, celebrate the new year in Second Life in style with real life artists and musicians Carol Ione, Norman Lowrey, Pauline Oliveros and others as part of Ione's 18th Annual Dream Festival, to be held in the Odyssey NE sim starting at 2 pm slt and continuing through midnight until 6 am slt. "You are invited to log on at any time, receive a Dreaming/Sleeping Cap animation for your Avatar, sound Dreaming into Alternate Universes instruments, and dream together with us from Central European Time (CET) to Pacific Time," say the organizers. "We recommend that you log on early and simply leave your Avatar in its Dreaming state if you have to actually be at a live party or engage in real life sleep!" It's a meditative sonic event at which you're invited to both listen and dream.

The Dream Festival is connected to the Deep Listening Institute, about which you can read more here—it provides "a unique approach to music, literature, art, meditation, technology and healing. DLI fosters creative innovation across boundaries and across abilities, among artists and audience, musicians and non-musicians, healers and the physically or cognitively challenged, and children of all ages. This ever-growing community of musicians, artists, scientists and certified Deep Listening practitioners strives for a heightened consciousness of the world of sound and the sound of the world."
