Playing with the Pros

Source: DontWorry.TV
They say that a common dream is to be able to fly, or sing. I'm sure virtual reality can help with the flying part.

Kids who play sports want to play - at least once - in a professional game. "Bend it like Beckham" or play with LeBron.

180 cm (5'11") in height, sometimes overweight, I am not tall enough to dunk nor light enough to fly.

So there had to be another way of playing with the pros.

For the next week, I'll be taking a short break from VR activities. My violin in hand, I'll be dedicating most of my time to practicing with like-minded individuals and members of the Baltimore Symphony Orchesta towards a concert next weekend at Symphony Hall. Conducted by the BSO's music director Marin Alsop, the concert will feature wonderful (and wonderfully difficult to play) pieces by Dvorak, Debussy, Tchaikovsky, Mahler and Berlioz. Below are a recording of two parts from these pieces.

I'll be back next week with more E3 thoughts, positional tracking information and more. But for now, let the music begin.
