New stuffies

With two trips overseas on the cards (New Orleans this year, Tuscany next year), I have many Thelma's stuffies to make before I can hop on the plane. These are a few from a recent batch and most of these are headed for Craft Victoria.

Bird sounds

Birds on the Wires from Jarbas Agnelli on Vimeo.

Reading a newspaper, I saw a picture of birds on the electric wires. I cut out the photo and decided to make a song, using the exact location of the birds as notes (no Photoshop edit). I knew it wasn't the most original idea in the universe. I was just curious to hear what melody the birds were creating.

I sent the music to the photographer, Paulo Pinto, who I Googled on the internet. He told his editor, who told a reporter and the story ended up as an interview in the very same newspaper.

Here I've posted a short video made with the photo, the music and the score (composed by the birds).

Music made with Logic.

Video made with After Effects.

Farewell Tasmania, Hello New Orleans

Last month we popped over to Tassie for a lovely visit.

This time next month we'll be in New Orleans.

We intend to go back to Tassie again and not leave it so long between visits. Loved catching up with friends and taking in the sights of Hobart. Planning next time to shop, shop, shop at Salamanca and catch up with the handsome black-nosed Rosco.
