SANDY:Let's start spending some words about SL :how did you discover it and what brought you inworld?BENISIMO:I honestly can't remember how I heard about SL, but what brought me in was mainly loneliness

SANDY:Did you ever think to use your real name for what you usually do in Second Life?
BENISIMO:What I do in SL is just an extension of what I do in RL. Having an avatar pseudonym is part of the fun of SL, but I don't hide behind it. It is rather an online expression of the real me, even though I look totally different, I am the same person.

SANDY:Can you describe your experience in SL:what did you like to do when you were not playing? Did you like to go to live music events or to art exibits?
BENISIMO:I love live music in SL and I have enjoyed some art. I really love to see multi media shows in SL.

SANDY:What has influenced you to get your to where you are today musically?
BENISIMO:I feel it is just my path. I have no specific influences, I just play what I relate to and what feels right.

SANDY:Do you think SL could be a valid showcase for your RL works?
BENISIMO:That is exactly what SL is for me.

SANDY:How would you describe your style?

BENISIMO:Acoustic Rock Pop

SANDY:Which are the sources of your inspiration?
BENISIMO:My past relationsinps, my feelings and experiences in life.

SANDY:Do you use other kind of digital promotions?
BENISIMO:Not yet, I am still learning about the world of computers and the internet. Watch this

SANDY:Where do you see yourself a year from now:will Second Life still exist?
BENISIMO:I will continue to use SL as it gives me a great deal of pleasure and it is a tool for airing new material and having my music broadcast into peoples homes all over the world.
