Train Ride Down With Tukso 2012

Changing up the pace from real life to avatar life today:)…Here is a video I made (when I barely knew what I was doing) for a Second Life-Real Life singer who is still performing in Second Life for more than 15 years. He was and is amazing!
I was just starting out making my machinimas (screen-capture videos) and inventing as I went along..(The Pre-Natascha Randt days) Still I think it captures the energy of Tukso’s music back then.. Every instrument you hear on this piece is played by Tukso. He uses a looper and lays down a song,  track by track. It’s amazing to witness and hear:)
Enjoy and turn up the sound:)

    • Yes the really great old days of Second Life.. He was /is such a magnetic performer. He has had the ability to draw in big crowds for years and is constantly reinventing himself and his sound…. a true musical genius in my book:) Glad you liked the poem too…I wrote it one night while I was at his show dancing and there was such a collective sense of OMG this is the best show ever:):) I had to write it down..immediately:)

    • Thanks Ben as I said above it was made 11 years ago and I was experimenting..and I know you know about that… so yes a very different more rock n roll style, even the poem. It was a fun project to film and lots laughing tying to get it right..anyway, the quality improved so much when I joined forces with Natascha. At this point, when it was made, she was just my critic and not yet my partner:) So glad you enjoyed it:)

    • Thank you so much Grace..this was a real blast from the past, for me to revisit too. I think this was the movie Nat took notice of me. I found a line I will quote here:
      “I also want to give a special thank- you, to a fellow Machinima Artist Guild member, who is a moderator and one I look up to for her experience, and her generous sharing of it with those of us less adept, Natascha Randt.” Who knew just a few months later we would team up on one video…and keep going and going. I love that about Life:) I was learning and experimenting and it was a great time. Thank you my sweet one:) for enjoying these relics
      I drag up now and then. Don’t worry because….I have to follow that muse….she put a collar and leash on me..a long time ago:):)
      Big hugs and thanks so much for this one:)

    • Thank you Kaushal…this was done 11 years ago but it’s interesting to see it has held up well and Tukso’s music is timeless. He is still drawing devoted fans to his shows nightly:) Such a great comment….and I for my part, will keep on experimenting…That’s a promise:)
