“Where’ve You Been?” Visits the Birdlight Cinema

At 12 noon and 4pm Pacif­ic Time on Wednes­day and Sat­ur­day, tune in for Episode 6 of “Where’ve You Been?” — our twice-month­ly series on things to do and places to see on the Sec­ond Life Grid, with Cale­do­nia Sky­tow­er and Elrik Mer­lin. In this episode we dis­cov­er a unique minia­ture movie the­atre where you can watch a full pro­gramme of short films, many award-winning.

Flo­ra Sper­ling lives in Ger­many, and brings her love of cin­e­ma and imag­i­na­tion to her two cin­e­mas in Sec­ond Life: Bird­light and Bir­dolu­moj.  The venues present twin pro­grams from the best of short ani­ma­tion fea­tures, chang­ing every fortnight.

Woodwinds

Today’s pro­gramme fea­tures mem­bers of the wood­wind fam­i­ly — oboe, clar­inet, flute, bas­soon, recorder and more, includ­ing the gamut of Ear­ly Music wood­winds like the shawn (the pre­de­ces­sor of the oboe), cur­tal (a pro­­to-bas­­soon) and crumhorn.

Of course, the major­i­ty of orches­tral music includes a wood­wind sec­tion, so the cri­te­ri­on for inclu­sion in today’s show was that a mem­ber of the wood­wind fam­i­ly is the lead instru­ment — a “wind band” is not suf­fi­cient (and they’re gen­er­al­ly usu­al­ly brass-heavy any­way), but a con­cer­to for bas­soon (yes there is at least one) counts.

Music of the Baroque

Today, Sat­ur­day April 3rd, 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.

Then at 12 noon and 4pm Pacif­ic, join us for Episode 5 of “Where’ve You Been?”, our twice-month­ly show on places to vis­it and things to do around the Sec­ond Life Grid. In this episode we vis­it Zamo­nia and you can find the details here. And every four hours from 4am Pacif­ic, 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.

“Where’ve You Been?” Visits Zamonia

At 12 noon and 4pm Pacif­ic Time on Wednes­day and Sat­ur­day, tune in for Episode 5 of “Where’ve You Been?” — our twice-month­ly series on things to do and places to see on the Sec­ond Life Grid, with Cale­do­nia Sky­tow­er and Elrik Mer­lin. In this episode we vis­it Zamo­nia, includ­ing the Val­ley of the Pon­der­ing Eggs, the Hid­den Lake, some cat­a­combs absolute­ly stuffed with books! — and much more.
