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

Any

“Any”

We learn to hear the intervals
through sensing gaps both far and near—
how some are music, others not
then storing them on our insides
and choosing those for our renewals
to guide forthwith our new behavior.

FINAL REPORT – SineSpace Mini User Case Study 28-Apr-2020

…importance of strength of connection, commonality of interests, the “high-touch” of a virtual presence experience mediating the ‘high-tech” issues of a complex technology user interface…

A mini user case study was conducted in April 2020 to explore the question, “What’s needed to be attracted to a virtual world and to stay there afterwards?” The results are relevant to virtual presence platform providers moving products from beta through production to broad commercialization, and to their prospective platform users.

How to work with your team remotely while improving collaboration and accountability – Virtual Live Conference in VirBELA

Attended a one-hour remote work event held in VirBELA Open Campus.

Topic was “How to work with your team remotely while improving collaboration and accountability.”

Speaker was Glenn Sanford, CEO of eXp, a company whose employees work online in a VirBELA Business Campus.

There were 165 attending as VirBELA avatars and 56 watching on the YouTube stream.

Speaker, voice, slides, and sound were good. The audience asked questions via text chat and a new “Slido” web app that Glenn was testing. The audience interacted with each other in text and occasional voice.

VirBELA provides basic options for residents to personalize their avatars viz. skin color, hair color, formal attire or casual attire, and glasses or not. Each avatar has a viewable Profile with room to add bio and links as desired.

  • I asked if eXp is the same as VirBELA – response was eXp is a sibling company of VirBELA.
  • I asked what accessibilty features were available in VirBELA – response was eXp has staff who are physically handicapped working from home.
  • I asked what version of Unity 3D VirBELA runs on – response was Unity 2018. 
  • I asked what the largest actual event held in a VirBELA region was – response was 600 to date.

You can see the recorded conference at How to Work with Your Team Remotely with Glenn Sanford: Tools, Technologies & Accountability.
