Purpose:

  • Demo cross-dimensional thinking and hybrid tech for those addressing daunting challenges
  • Demo teamwork and collaboration for those leading and working in groups
  • Demo fundamentals of music theory for those extending mastery in arts

Background:

before I began working in 3d online I was a systems analyst for an oil company
my music was in school as a side activity
I learned to play but not the theory of how to compose
so I decided to learn how to compose but also to do it in new ways so that the music I made could be new to me

this exhibit looks different from the sides and back
only the 3d parts are visible
it is vision plus sound plus mind :)
you have to come inside to see the mind

see the moving dots –
this is an experiment
it is visual of the music you have been playing on the right
in my vocabulary the purple is the cadence (energy) and the green is the backbone (structure)
for me vision and sound go together

these piano notes are only a few seconds
the parts of the composition are 7 seconds long each
there is a link to the full composition played in youtube, at the top top top left of that display
here I put 19 seconds of it in three parts

when many people play it comes from different directions and volumes
I have had groups come and play all together
who don’t “do” music but enjoyed it

speaking in music
without words
although… we still add words :)

because of custom keyboard
the colored cubes are programmed musical scales

“Performing in VR – Behind the Scenes with Caryl Meredith Artistic Director Spirit Light Dance Company”

Sitearm and Caryl Meredith take you to the Understage of the Rockcliffe University Theatre of Light, to see and experience where the dancing magic of “Phoenix Rising” happens!

Caryl Meredith

CARYL MEREDITH

Caryl Meredith is Artistic Director Spirit Light Dance Company, and Producer “Phoenix Rising Dance Show” for Virtual Worlds Best Practices in Education 2022. “I started dancing when I was 7 years old and by the time I was 16 I was the principal dancer with a ballet company so I’ve been doing this my whole life. I started teaching at 14 and I have been dancing and teaching choreography in Second Life since 2009.”

Spirit Light Dance Company

SPIRIT LIGHT DANCE COMPANY

Spirit Life Dance Company (SLDC) is one of Second Life’s premier dance organizations, providing a highly original, leading-edge blend of virtual world technology and classic choreography. Created by Caryl Meredith, a classically trained choreographer, the SLDC is a volunteer organization that takes ordinary people and makes them into extraordinary dancers, choreographers, and set designers, all within the unique setting of a social virtual world.

Phoenix Rising

PHOENIX RISING

The Spirit Light Dance Company (SLDC) was pleased to participate in this year’s Virtual Worlds Best Practices in Education Conference presenting a new show “Phoenix Rising.” The theme of the presentation is “inspiration.” How are we inspired to overcome obstacles and to move on to where we want to be? How do we rise, phoenix-like, to abandon the old and to embrace the new? The dancers confront these questions in several stirring choreographic moments that are capped by a rousing adventure into the meanings of fire and rebirth.
