Tarot @ Teatime, Episode 17: Tarot History

It’s Thurs­day, Octo­ber 14th and time for anoth­er new episode in our pop­u­lar orig­i­nal series, “Tarot @ Tea Time”.

In Episode 17, Hon­ey and Wil­low explore the fas­ci­nat­ing 600 year his­to­ry of the Tarot. They dis­cuss sig­nif­i­cant places, peo­ple, and dates as well as when occult sys­tems such as astrol­o­gy, Kab­bal­ah, Egypt­ian mythol­o­gy, and alche­my came to be asso­ci­at­ed with Tarot.

Welcome to Haunted Hollow…

We are very pleased to have col­lab­o­rat­ed in a small way with our friends and spon­sors Sean­chai Library and Elite Eques­tri­an in a spe­cial sea­son­al region you can vis­it only dur­ing the month of Octo­ber, up to and includ­ing Hallowe’en.

HAUNTED HOLLOW: an All Hal­lows Experience
Pre­sent­ed by Elite Eques­tri­an, Sean­chai Library, Tarot @ Teatime, and Vir­tu­al Com­mu­ni­ty Radio
Octo­ber 7 — 31 on Chest­nut Hills in Sec­ond Life.

“Once Upon a Time there was an Enchant­ed Hol­low under the glow of the Hunter’s Moon. It was there that tales gath­ered: tales of strug­gle and virtue, of light and loom­ing dark­ness. They set­tled in as cool­ing breezes whirled the falling leaves, nestling between the autum­nal heights and that place where the brook waters blend with the salty sea. Some thrive, some expire, and some twist them­selves just a little.”

Haunt­ed Hol­low fea­tures sto­ries, music, live trick or treat, hunts, pony rides, and a region of fun to explore.

“Where Have You Been?” Episode 18 — Snowy River Halloween

Pre­mier­ing on Wednes­day, Octo­ber 13th, at 12 noon and 4pm Pacific/SLT, 8pm and mid­night in the UK, Episode 18 of our Sec­ond Life trav­el show fea­tures Snowy Riv­er Hal­loween and Pine Val­ley Haunt­ed Cav­erns.

From Classical to Romantic

Today we explore a lit­tle of the music writ­ten at the bor­ders of the Clas­si­cal and Roman­tic eras, focus­ing on the work of some well-known com­posers born in the last 30 years of the 18th Cen­tu­ry. It’s also time for a new episode of our Sec­ond Life trav­el series, “Where Have You Been?” — Episode 18, which vis­its Snowy Riv­er Hal­loween — Pirate Vil­lage and Pine Val­ley Haunt­ed Cav­erns (see sep­a­rate entry).

His­tor­i­cal­ly, the term ‘clas­si­cal music’ refers specif­i­cal­ly to the musi­cal peri­od from 1750 to 1820. The tran­si­tion from the clas­si­cal peri­od of West­ern art music, which last­ed around 1750 to 1820, to Roman­tic music, which last­ed around 1815 to 1910, took place in the eigh­teenth and nine­teenth cen­turies. Com­posers began tran­si­tion­ing their com­po­si­tion­al and melod­ic tech­niques into a new musi­cal form which became known as the Roman­tic Era or Roman­ti­cism due to the imple­men­ta­tion of lyri­cal melodies as opposed to the lin­ear com­po­si­tion­al style of Clas­si­cal music.

We’ve just uploaded two addi­tion­al shows to our Mix­cloud pro­file, where you can “lis­ten again” to our orig­i­nal series episodes that you may have missed.

On this occa­sion, we’ve added Episode 17 of “Where Have You Been?”, our series on things to do and places to see in the Sec­ond Life vir­tu­al world, and Episode 16 of our pop­u­lar show on the Tarot, “Tarot @ Tea Time”.

Music of the Baroque

Today, Wednes­day Octo­ber 6th, we explore the music of the Baroque era. We’ll be includ­ing the work of a wide range of com­posers. Many will be famil­iar; oth­er per­haps less so; or they may have writ­ten pieces that we know well but have no idea of who com­posed them — for exam­ple Eng­lish com­pos­er Thomas Arne, who wrote Rule Bri­tan­nia but also a range of oth­er pieces which deserve more inter­est than is usu­al­ly paid to them. And there is plen­ty of Bach in today’s programme!

Then at 12 noon and 4pm Pacif­ic / 8pm or mid­night UK time, there’s anoth­er chance to hear Episode 17 of “Where Have You Been?”, our twice-month­ly show on places to vis­it and things to do around the Sec­ond Life Grid. And in this sea­son­al episode, we vis­it Embrace Aphrodite’s Dark­ness and Ghast­ly Manor. Fea­tur­ing three attrac­tions, rang­ing from a scenic rail­road to an arcade ghost-train style ride, it’s a delight­ful­ly var­ied des­ti­na­tion for those who love Hallowe’en fun.

And every four hours from 4am Pacific/noon in the UK, tune in for “The Engines of Our Inge­nu­ity”, from the Uni­ver­si­ty of Hous­ton, about the machines that make our civ­i­liza­tion run and the peo­ple whose inge­nu­ity cre­at­ed them.

In addi­tion, don’t for­get to catch our pre­sen­ta­tion of Franken­stein in two parts start­ing Sat­ur­day 9th.
