PwRHm is an Avatar Orchestra work in progress that explores and embraces the sonic possibilities inherent in the frequency of the electrical currents that power most aspects of modern existence. The piece exposes the relationship between the harmonic series of the North American 60 Cycle AC current and of the European 50 Cycle AC current, and uses the breathing rhythms of the live individual performers, spread across 2 continents, to determine the dynamic between the relationships, sounds and movements of the virtual avatar players.

PwRHm uses 4 instruments created within the technical possibilities and limitations of the Second Life platform. The instrument sounds are made from sets of short sound samples of individual sine and square waves and field recordings of electric motors put together in a HUD (Heads Up Display) configuration by the Orchestra's instrument builder, Andreas Mueller / Bingo Onomatopoeia. The sounds made by the players are therefore not streamed. Each avatar/player is plays, in real time, sounds through instrument controls visible on each of their computer screens to make the combined sound of the piece. The players move through the virtual performance space when they play, giving a changing blend of sound throughout the piece. The avatars also hold semi-transparent globes, or 'receivers', designed by media artist Sachiko Hayachi / Goodwind Seiling, that emit gradations of differently coloured particles according to the specific sound and volume they each play on their instruments. The set also includes two large blue water tanks that hold two of the players, and that provide illumination within the night sky surrounding the suspended virtual performance platform.

This recording was made from Bingo's computer and thus documents the listening perspective of this particular player - the audience in NY receives a slightly different mix.

On October 29, 2007 AOM rehearsed for the shows at NOTAM, Oslo, and Eslöv, Sweden.
Everything got so messed up by some technical problems, that it could hardly be labeled "remix". Stil, we enjoyed it, and when I decided to record it, I obviously plugged into the wrong input of my digital recorder. The harsh distortion adds even more flavour to it.
No editing was done here, only some level-adjustments!!!
