What happens when three improv musicians get the opportunity to play in a world of their own, one that they have constructed themselves?

Well, you get a headless monkey smashing a cello next to a guy trapped in massive box and a sexy young avatar called cajska, all performing on a floating stage in a pink-neon landscape, surrounded by twilight...

This is a recording of a live performance we did in the virtual world of Second Life on 16th August 2012.

In the digital world, we designed and created our own avatars - our virtual selves - as well as our instruments and stage, complete with light-show.

In the real world, we were set up at the Norvun Crunk studio, with three computers ready to stream our performance into the virtual ether. A gig inside the internet.

The performance was at Uaxuctum, a giant artwork made for the Linden Endowment for the Arts Full Sim Art Series by cajska (simon).
