2008 - PARSEC is a vast immersive environmental “instrument” for 7 avatars that listens to your voice and allows you to control a musical composition together.
It uses the Second Life voice system in a new and unusual way to control both music and movement of objects.
There is also a puzzle locked within the musical composition. Play the piece correctly and the solution will be revealed… Will you be able to solve it ?
“This is the kind of work that lights the way to the future for post-convergent art and entertainment.” Adam Ramona
“I couldn’t sleep after seeing PARSEC! It is so refreshing to see this level of innovation derived from the native or inherent capacity of the virtual environment. You really have invented an entirely new kind of instrument, I think, planting the seed for a new generation of participatory and collaborative real-time musical composition. I wonder, who will be the Mozart or Beethoven of the Parsec?” Keystone Bouchard
“This is what I imagined the metaverse would be like” Chance Abattoir
