“Our dreams are a second life.” ~Gerard de Nerval
By Cat Boccaccio.
Did you ever suspect that everyone in Second Life (except you) is “socially awkward” and probably lives in Mom’s basement? Draxtor Despres, in another truly beautiful video, lays that myth to rest once and for all, with his profile of Engrama, a musical duo (comprised of Pupito Helstein and Lakua Arriaga) who are cool and compelling in both worlds. Happy to reach a wider international audience, Engrama embraces Second Life on every level.
“We live with second life, we eat with second life,” Pupito says in the video. They share a pretty amazing commitment to SL, and find Facebook and Twitter “boring” by comparison. Their passions are Second Life and their music, and so it seems natural that Drax, our Second Life neo-historian, would choose them as subjects for the latest of his Drax Files: World Makers series.
Ever wonder how musicians connect with Second Life as they perform? Are they engaged? Engrama is completely involved, they watch and listen and engage as if the audience was real. “They are real,” says Lakua (above).
And after all, “who says what is real and what is not real?”
Enjoy the video, and thank you Draxtor!
