Chouchou, a cinematic music island.

I have visited this week "Chouchou", an island created by Juliet Heberle and Arabesque Choche.
A wide horizon, a tree, a piano, a birdcage and and, what looks like a broken ladder. This makes the sim so unique. You get the feeling of emptiness, quietness but most of all peaceful environment, with, once you put on the cinematic HUD, a supplementary level of heavenly carefree existence.

Juliet is a singer from New York, and Arabesque, Japanese by birth, has lived in New York City for the last decade, is a composer and producer of Chouchou's music. It's jazzy and dreamy, spiked with synthetic nostalgia.
Arabesque is based in Tokyo, and the two have never met in real life. He transmits his music digitally, she records her vocals over them, and in Second Life®, they perform live together while several thousand miles away.

It is difficult to make a good shot from this sim, that has not been taken yet, as the sim is already very popular amongst the SL®-photographers, but that does not mean you can not give another expression to the experience on this cinematic music isle.

I will be posting more pictures of the sim to flickr soon, as there is more to see than just a tree and a piano.;)

On the New World Notes blog, you will also be able to find related articles.

Thanks for all this information, Looker. I really love their music, and was nice to meet them for some minutes in their sim some days ago.
