Last week was the official kick-off for the 2014 season of RFL in SL. This weekend, Aether Chrononauts Tiny Steps had its first event, the annual Time Travellers Ball! Held in Winterfell Reverie on an Aetheric Timeship, attendees danced to Nouveau Vintage tunes provided by DJ Otenth Håkon Paderborn.
What is Nouveau Vintage? It is a growing subgenre of music, where modern rock and pop songs are covered using arrangements and instruments from previous musical eras, including classical, big band-era jazz, American and European cabaret, and even a cappella. With selections from Max Raabe and the Palast Orchestr, 2cellos, and Scott Bradlee and the Postmodern Jukebox, Mr. Paderborn surprised and delighted the crowd with novel, playful renditions of contemporary music, perfectly in theme with the Ball.
Surrounded by objects for travel from various eras, including a galleon, a rocket and a blue policeman's box, today's travelers with ACTS set off on a Journey of Hope that will culminate in four months at this years Relay for Life in Second Life. We thank each and every attendee for their presence and support, and we hope that you continue the journey with us!
