Last week, I wrote about how residents of Second Life are starting to use high-definition 3D spatial voice for live music (guitar). Yesterday, I was talking to a group of people when one of them said that she was a singer.
Peer pressure is an amazing thing. In 30 seconds, she agreed to sing for the group.
And, wow! She is really good!
More than one person in the group compared her favorably to Ani DiFranco. One guy said he knows someone at an indie record label, and offered to give her an introduction.
Her Second Life name is Preciousse Moody. I don’t know her name in real life. She doesn’t have a website, but it’s easy enough to find someone in Second Life.
I think this may be the answer to the question, “what if you gave everyone a microphone, made it easy to use, and let them interact with any audience they can assemble on the Internet?”
