The last time Origin Rang graced Oyster Bay with his presence, he was a little-known commodity on the Second Life music scene. Back after just a couple months, he’s a bona fide star. And we’re so excited to have him back this Friday night!
Seeing as Oyster Bay is a “part-time” music venue, we have the luxury of being extremely picky and choosy about our performers. I’m really more interested in quality over quantity – making every performance at Oyster Bay not just another show on the calendar but rather an event.
Listening to Origin play is one of the treats of Second Life. I mean, to live in the United States where I do and then listen live to a classically-trained concert pianist play from Tokyo, Japan for me and 40 or so of my close friends is worth the price of tier twelve times over. Go and look at the link above…performances from just anyone don’t inspire the outpouring of emotion that you see from Tree’s comments.
Not to mention, Origin is a humble and very friendly person. A good guy, as we Americans say.
This past weekend, he shared his planned playlist for Friday’s show with me. I thought I’d pass it along to you folks:
Hungarian Rhapsodies No2
Etude Op.10-5 in Gb Major “Black Key”
Etude Op.25-11 in A Minor “Winter Wind”
Etude Op.25-12 in C Minor “The Ocean”
Nocturne No.2 Op.9-2 in Eb Major
Etude Op.10-12 in C Minor “Revolutionary”
Fantasie-Impromptu Op.66 in C#Minor
Sonata Op. 58 No. 3 in b minor (FULL)
Prelude Op.28-15 in Db Major Raindrop
Piano Sonata No.1 in D (FULL)}
Origin is very humble and doesn’t accept the considerable credit he is due, but I can say that the performance he has arranged will be one that SL residents will not forget. I’ve seen him play twice now and been moved each time. The man takes Second Life and the concept of art to a higher level.
Please make an effort to join us! The Oyster sim will fill up early as Second Life has finally figured out who this man is…so no excuses for being late!
