Sim on a Whim: A Trancescending Experience

Posted on Updated on

Once upon a time, one of my favorite things to do in Second Life was to open the World Map, zoom out from wherever I happened to be, scroll around hither and yon, and choose a sim to visit completely at random. Then with a virtual leap of faith and a trusty double-click, I’d teleport off into the unknown! Soon I’d find myself rezzing into a completely new experience, one that was often accompanied by curious sights to see and places to explore.

The wonderfully informative GridSurvey.com reports that there are over 25,000 active regions on the grid right now, so imagine the possibilities for exploration! Even moreso when you consider that every sim has the potential to hold a number of different parcels, each with their own potential for interesting finds, as well as lofted venues and vignettes high in the sky. A friendly member at SLUniverse mentioned that there may be HUDs available that will pinpoint new locations for you to visit at random, but I rather enjoy my haphazard scroll n’ click adventuring. And sometimes, like last evening, serendipity finds me in a locale so lovely, I hardly wish to leave …

I’ll be explaining the whys and wherefores of how I ended up at the Poesie sim in my next post, but for now please allow me to rhapsodize about the loveliness of Trancescending Chill Garden! Created by Australian native Pixie Marenwolf, the Trancescending gardens and main area (situated 1500 meters above) are dedicated to bringing trance music to the grid in spectacular multi-day events that occur every three months. At the recent Unity Festival, held from May 29th – 31st, live DJs from all over the world visited Pixie’s parcel to spin progressive and uplifting trance tunes.

The main landing point for Trancesending, per the Search listing, is in fact the sky platform where the festival took place, so I would recommend following the SLURL I’ve linked here for ground level access. This landing area will allow you to choose from the various Trancescending Chill Garden areas, as well as Pixie’s Bumbleberry store, which offers vintage, casual and urban women’s clothing.

The Garden features four private areas with places to lounge, cuddle, relax, and rejuvenate. I had a wonderful time experimenting with windlights and shadows, enjoying the beautiful scenery of waterfalls, fountains, ponds and tropical flowers. The media stream is a fantastic accompaniment; the Vocal Chillout channel from Digitally Imported (one of the absolute best places to stream electronic music online) provides an ideal soundscape for this beautiful and intimate locale.

The parcel information notes that Trancescending operates every Sunday from 4pm – 12am SLT; however I didn’t find anyone on the sky platform when I visited during that time. There’s an in-world group to join, and I plan to get in touch with Pixie to find out if the schedule has changed, as I’d really enjoy visiting when there’s live music to be experienced!

But in the meantime, guests are welcomed to enjoy the Chill Garden whenever they like. If you’re allured by the relaxing sounds and sights of crackling fire pits, seaspray, and waterfalls, I recommend “trancescending” into these aquatic gardens for a long, languorous visit.
