Mikki Miles is a master musical instrument maker in Second Life (in-world store, SL Marketplace). Here is a picture of my medieval roleplay avatar in SL, aptly named Scarborough Fair. She is standing in a tavern at the Conquest of Elysium sim, playing her Lute Signature EX, which was created and scripted by Mikki Miles. I just love Mikki’s instruments! I own and play many of them.
Well, Mikki Miles has come to Sansar, and he has created a wonderful experience called Musica. It’s very simple but wonderfully done! You materialize in the centre of a ring of seven spotlit instruments: an upright piano, a double bass, a drum, a trio of alphorns, a harp, a tiny calliope, and an acoustic guitar.
Each instrument is playing one part of a seven-part harmony. As you approach each musical instrument, you can hear its sound more clearly. When you return to the centre spot, you can hear the entire melody in all seven parts! So simple! So wonderful!
What really adds to the playful atmosphere are animated white musical notes, rests, and clefs which bounce joyfully around in the sky above the instruments.
Go visit Mikki Miles’ Musica, and enjoy the performance! If this is just Mikki’s first experience, I predict many great things to come!
