Virtual musician moves to Ohio to perform live
If you’re a fan of Torben Asp — and you probably are, as he’s one of OpenSim’s favorite performers — and you live or visit the US east coast, you might now be able to catch him performing live, in person.
“The move to the USA is to pursue a real life Torben Asp presence,” he told 3rd Rock Grid program director Zinnia Frenzy in an interview in this month’s HG VisionZ magazine. “It’s very new, so we will see how that will come along.”
Asp has already held a dozen real-life concerts since moving from Denmark, to Cincinnati, Ohio, a few months ago.
He’s also had over 1,500 virtual concerts in Second Life and OpenSim, where his electronic ambient music is amplified and enhanced by the kind of visual special effects you can only have in a virtual world.
Check out the video of his performance at Cornflakes Week on OSgrid this past February:
