Part 3

This mixed reality event is a concert that merges realities together.  The first part of the performance will be purely real life performances.  The next will be the virtual world of Second Life being projected on screens above the real life performances, featuring Avatar Orchestra Metaverse.  The next part of the concert will be joining of the two world, the joining of the real world and the virtual world.  Real life players will be projected into second life and play together with Avatar Orchestra Metaverse.
