The Weekly Birdbath for June 25th - July 1st


June 25th - July 1st, 2011 by Cobra405/Mizagorn/Redstar/Mpeutz




Here is a short but very cool clip made by Luis_Aguilar. This would be a perfect intro to an Aviary music podcast or something.

An awesome mix from mvpalmer that uses the Vacoder instrument. Great chords and a mellow beat give this mix a cool vibe, and a great base to mix more over the top.


Universal Studios, Disneyworld, and Jimmy Buffet are not the only artistic things in Florida. Desaturation is the process of selectively removing part or all of the color in a photograph or image. So here's the tie-in: Our guy from the Sunshine State cypher15 has become quite good at using desat techniques in Phoenix to create interesting and emotional art. (And you thought desaturation was squeezing the water out of a sponge?) Cypher also uses the new Peacock Blackboxes very well, plus likes to dabble in the music apps. Be sure to stop by and visit this wonderful gallery of color and non-color. Leave some comments and say "hi" too!



As you know, we don't have an end date to our challenges and because of that, often what is old becomes new again. Thanks to Alpha13Wolf our 2 year old Surrealist Exquisite Corpse challenges are once again seeing the light of day. In this challenge, someone starts with an image and everyone who wants to play adds one additional hub. Follow the link to a whole lot fun. Thank you A13W, here is a preview of what has been created so far:

yellowstar24 is in the process of setting up a big music collaboration of Roc and Myna artists. The mission: "It will be Roc beats made by us imported and arranged in Myna." Be sure and check it out!

What a mover and a shaker! Yellowstar has also started a new Game Group. Go there and play fun games to get to know others in the forums beyond Aviary.
