The Delightful Distrito Distinto in Second Life

***Distrito Distinto*** (moderate)

If you are as ignorant as I (and few are), you might be unfamiliar with the concept of Distrito Distinto (Different District). What I think I now know is that we should imagine an artistic festival which involves travelling to various interiors, each inspired by a song, and each providing a unique expression of wit and creativity.

To celebrate (what I think is) the 5th Anniversary of MetaLES, the art sim curated by the brilliant duo Romy Nayar & Ux Hax, an inworld Distrito Distinto has opened with 9 participating artists.

These talented individuals, and their chosen songs, are:

  • Bryn Oh –             “keep the streets empty for me” by fever ray
  • Cica Ghost –         “Lullaby” by The Cure
  • Maya Paris  –         X-Ray Spex, “Oh Bondage! Up Yours!”
  • Giovanna Cerise  –  “Innuendo” by Queen
  • Betty Tureaud  –   Rolling Stones,  “She’s a Rainbow “
  • Rebeca Bashly  –   “Chop Suey” by System of a Down
  • Eupalinos Ugajin – “Estudio, Trabajo Y Fusil! Rockingchair”
  • JadeYu Fhang   –   Massive Attack,  “What Your Soul Sings”
  • Alpha Auer  –         Alpha Auer,  “Grid Factory “
  • Romy Nayar –       Mylène Farmer, “Nuit d’hiver (Chloé)”
  • Selavy Oh –          Ryoji Ikeda, “Carsen Nicolai Titel 4 – 1”

The landing spot is just next to a ticket booth. Grab your free pass and you’ll get a HUD which will transport you to the various interiors along the route of the travelling exhibit.

Make sure you have “Region Windlight” turned on and that you have sounds enabled. The music isn’t being streamed (which makes a lot of sense if you think about it) and you want to hear the songs.

I loved all of it. I am a big fan of each of these artists, I’m a new fan of the concept, and I am a devotee of Romy/Ux and this sim.

You will find art, and humour, and music (seriously, who would have guessed that Maya would choose a song called “Oh Bondage! Up Yours!” – well, yes, most of us). More importantly, you will find a celebration appropriate for a location which regularly provides us with some of the best virtual art available anywhere.

Go enjoy! :)􀀁
