  1. This week's featured musician is Al Hofmann, whose one-man band has treated us to a fusion of rock, jazz, and electronic elements for 14 years. With over 3,000 inworld shows under his belt, his style has no doubt evolved time and time again and each performance brings fresh interpretations. Please check out his official website and YouTube channel to experience his music for yourself! Q: When/how did you hear about Second Life? A: I heard about Second Life in the summer of 2006 on a local tv program about new conceptual art tendencies. Q: What instruments do you play, and at what age did you pick them up? A: I play the guitar: electric, acoustic, classical and midi guitar. With the midi guitar, you can play any instrument sound with it. MIDI is an acronym that stands for Musical Instrument Digital Interface. It's a way to connect devices that make and control sounds (such as synthesizers, samplers, and computers) so that they can communicate with each other using MIDI messages. {I also play} bass guitar, percussion and charango, an ancient South American {stringed instrument}, kind of mandolin. I started to play the guitar at the age of 5. Q: How would you describe your music? A: The style I play is being defined as fusion. A mix of different styles, mainly jazz and rock. Q: Tell us about some of the musicians who have been the most influential to you. A: John Mclaughlin, Jeff Beck, Chick Corea, John Coltrane, Charles Mingus, Weather Report, etc. Q: How has your relationship to music and creativity been affected by the pandemic, and what would you say to inspire other artists during this time? A: The positive side of the pandemic is that you have time to fully embrace what you do. Whatever that might be, you can improve what you love to do the most. A wonderful opportunity to even discover the purpose of your life. I strongly believe there is art in every individual. Life and humans are an act of art. Q: What is the most meaningful aspect of the SL music community to you? A: The most meaningful aspect of the SL music community is planetary conscience. No more borders, languages, political implications, time frames. One love: Art on the planet. SL has given us all a terrific chance to connect with artists and people around the world. Thank you, Al!
