Music Made in SL: Fly Kugin



This week we are talking to Fly Kugin, who plays both her own mesmerizing violin compositions, as well as cover tunes, in Second Life.

Music is a huge part of Fly’s life; in the physical world Fly works as a professional musician and music teacher in Istanbul, Turkey. In SL, she reports that she performs “solo shows, dual streams, benefit shows for non-profits all around the grid and recently produced an exhibition of {my} own real life art in SL.”

Initially, Fly was unaware of the possibilities for musical performances in SL. She tells us: “I explored Second Life for about four years and participated in social and cultural activities to improve my English. Then I realized... Why am I not bringing my profession of music to Second Life?”

Fly’s performances in SL were even more prolific over the last year, given the circumstances. She played several live shows per week throughout 2020. She was eager to bring her art to people across the world, saying “sharing these feelings with people around the world gives me great energy and happiness.”

Fly adds, “the effects of music on human psychology have been scientifically proven. That's why I can clearly say that Second Life is a great platform to touch people in profound ways.”

There is actually a chance to witness her perform tomorrow at the Musical Concert for Virtual Ability, which takes place from 12:30PM to 3:00PM. The opportunities to experience art, culture, and music in SL are truly limitless and we encourage all to come explore!
