I have a free life, the country where I live is not in war, I can say what I want, I can walk where I want, I can think what I want, I can dress how I want and I don’t have to feel in danger.

All this feels very natural.

To remind us that this is not so natural and not in reach for every person in the world, we celebrate Freedom Day in the Netherlands on 5 May. First to remember the end of World War II, but now also to celebrate and fight for freedom for all people in the world. A lot of festivals are taking place this day all through the country. One of these festivals is Bevrijdingspop, a big music festival with 80.000 visitors.

And this year Bevrijdingspop can be heard in SL! The concert will be streamed to here live and photos of the events will be transferred and displayed directly to feel the atmosphere of the event! And more… Second Life will be showed during the event, there is a streamer of the RL crew in SL who will film and project this film by a beamer on a big screen! Where can you be more free to be who you want to be than in Second Life? We are going to show that with…

ESTAFETTE FOR FREEDOM


(Thanks to Kafee Iwish for editting the original flyer of Bevrijdingspop)

At a secret location the Bevrijdingspop will be streamed. At this place there is only room for a few people. To show as many different people from the world we are living in, every person stays just a few minutes at this place and then tp’s a friend who will stay for a while and so on. During the stay, the person will be filmed and be seen in RL.  The big challenge is to show as many people as possible and to create a nice document of our big variety of residents.

Be prepared, dress your freedom, maybe you will receive a tp to take part in a semi-secret exclusive event where you can have your 15 minutes of fame and show the world who you are.

As a thank you for joining, you will find gifts for you from some amazing designers: SySy’s, ki Design, Aleida Rhode, Mashooka Designs, Sascha’s Designs, SF Design, Koguma Glasses Style (K_gs), Blacklace, GM Nikolaidis, Perse

SO JOIN AND CELEBRATE FREEDOM!

Pictures of ClubNL – Amsterdam

I was living a kind of lazy housewife life for a long time… until last Saturday. I received an email from Jennifer Delano of JenJenPR, asking me of I was willing to join the organisation of  a simultaneous reallife – Secondlife fashion show. This time the event will take place in the hot and steamy Club NL in Amsterdam during a party of the über cute Johnny de Mol! I shifted  some dust away from my housewife life and said yes! Of course I want!

Because EFA is not able to host this event for now, I was glad that Patty Cortes, Glance International Agency, was very enthusiastic and willing to take the challenge with me to turn this RL-SL event, like First Fusion, Syntopia and EFA-AIFW2009, into an unforgetable experience. Together with her spirit, the designs of Convoitise and our experience with RL-SL events we will present you a party that can not be missed!

Stay tuned for more news!

Monday 26 January, the real life merged with virtual life in the Beurs van Berlage. After months of preparation it was finally going to happen, the EFA-AIFW2009 show. The Beurs van Berlage was filled with guests, even people were waiting outside looking for a chance to get in and join the show too. After the shows of Eleonore de Ruuk and Melanie Brown, the simultaneous RL-SL show started. DJ Damien.S was tuning and on a big screen you could see the show in Second Life as the guests in Second Life could see the show in Amsterdam. Unfortunate, the camera did not work with the PC, but with the web-cam the atmosphere could be felt and a glimp of the show could be seen in the Beurs van Berlage at Ischia.

It was really special to see the both shows at the same time, each with it’s own possibilities. The show in Amsterdam with the speed of the models and the show in Secondlife with the luxery touches. But one thing for sure, both shows had the same character, same feeling, same enthusiastic public and breathing the same atmosphere. Although the EFA-AIFW2009 was maybe not perfect at each detail, all participants can be satisfied and proud on the result. Another step forward has been taken to merge the real life fashion world with the virtual fashion world.

Mostly of the time, the music at a fashion show is at the background. It is there to give the right atmosphere, to the show and to the designs. This will not be different at the EFA-AIFW2009 show. But this time it will be far more exciting! The DJ for the show, Damien.S, will be on stage and spinning in the Beurs van Berlage and at Ischia during the show. He will connect both world with his music and enjoy the event at both worlds at the same time. Let me introduce him to you..

Damien, how did you start your DJ carrier?

I actually started producing and making music first before I started DJ-ing. Producing is something I have done for many years now and I used to DJ a bit for fun. Once I got introduced to SL and started spinning there I really enjoyed it a lot and that’s how I started DJ-ing a lot more. So I guess SL inspired me to pick that up more!

Are you still tuning in SL as a DJ? And can we find you in certain clubs?  

I used to DJ in SL once a month or so but lately since I’ve been so busy with my productions I haven’t been spinning a lot. I did do a clubtour in Second Life last year for my “Summerfeeling” release in the major clubs of SL which was really fun to do. But if I’m spinning in SL I’m mostly at Club Maya on Maya Island.

At your site I saw you did more cross-over events. How do you experience these events?

It’s amazingly fun to do and the responses are wicked. The people in the physical club like to interact with the avatars in SL that are projected on the walls and the people in SL feel very connected to the gig as well. It’s also a great opportunity to reach a bigger audience and I’m really looking forward to do another crossreality event!

What will we hear during the EFA-AIFW2009 show? Do you have something different than normal in mind?

I’ll be spinning some dance floor anthems, some fresh new tracks and probably some exclusives as well so stay tuned for that!
