Grace is the creator of Musimmersion, an SL scripting system allowing performers to create custom-made 3D environments morphing to match every song in a set - in effect, creating music video worlds for real-time audience immersion. New World Notes says that "Musimmersion offers some great insights into what the future of music in a virtual space might look like," while the Metaverse Messenger says, "Grace has taken us beyond a recreation of reality or fantasy into a multi-sensory experience that compares with nothing I have seen here as yet." Grace will discuss the creation and use of Musimmersion, new trends in music multimedia, and the future of music in synthetic worlds.
Grace is an independent singer/songwriter from Atlanta, GA. She draws her inspiration from an eclectic mix of folk, soul, alternative rock and blues, and from singer-songwriters such as Damien Rice, k. d. lang, Joan Armatrading and KT Tunstall, yet her music defies categorization. Grace began performing live music in the virtual world of Second Life in 2006 where she still performs regularly around the grid.
An entertainer and modern bard with heart and soul to spare, Grace throws down a variety of acoustic sets with an old guitar, rich lyrics and powerfully raw vocals for a growing international fan base.
