MUREL is back!

After a long sleep the MUREL-Blog will be reactivated from now. 
The main intention is to comment the new concept of the project EthnoMusicScape. This concept has the focus to extend the documentation of music styles and cultures not only on web-pages but also in a 3D-environment of a virtual reality like Second Life or OS. All webpages of EthnoMusicScape will be re-processed in the next time and get a link to an immersive interactive virtual scenery.
The first finished ones are:

- Music in Afghanistan and

- Music of the Maldives:

The virtual scenery can be visited here: .
With clicking on a rezzer-box, the scenery will appear and can be explored. Links guide the visitor back to the webpage for further information.
Of course requires a participation in a virtual world an account and the creation of an avatar as well as the download and installation of a viewer-software
