Cosmic Photo prompt.

Apologies for the lateness of the hour, I’ve had a bit of a full week this week, but I have a fine idea for the theme of The Cosmic Photo Challenge today to make up for it. Having noted the popularity of our recent “artistic” prompt, I’m going with another freestyle concept; Giving it the old collage try.

You see what I did there?

Yes, it’s time to test your editing skills once more and combine multiple photos into one aesthetically pleasing whole image.

Any subject, any style, any processes or techniques, just mash ’em up and have some fun.

See y’all on Monday with a bit of photo-combo mumbo-jumbo, have a great weekend.

To get involved with the challenge; check out the Cosmic Photo Prompt each Friday, then post a photo (or photos) on your blog the following Monday, with a pingback link to my Monday post.

Any and all effects, editing, Photoshop, Instagram, morphing, collages, animation, gifs, or whatever other post production techniques you fancy are permitted, (in fact, they’re actively encouraged!) so get creative and turn your photos into artworks for the Cosmic Photo Challenge.

One liner Wednesday: Midweek mix.

The alternative dictionary takes brief sabbatical again this week, to allow me to show off my latest audio visual project.

I have used my sequencer to compose all the additional music required to make a completely new mix of the Kate Bush song, King Of The Mountain, accompanied by a similarly upgraded video.

Enjoy.

I’m hoping that most of you are beginning to thaw out a little now, so this week’s theme on The Cosmic Photo Challenge shouldn’t make it too hard on you when you look for; New life emerging.

Yes, it seems like Spring is well and truly here in our little corner of the world and I’m sure you can capture the great cycle of life rebooting where you are, too.

I’ll see you back here for the big reveal on Monday, but in the meantime enjoy your Easter break and cross your fingers for good weather.

The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Today’s creative inspiration for The Cosmic Photo Challenge was a simple theme, allowing you as much aesthetic scope as you liked to make; Art for art’s sake.

I went with one abstract image, made using photos of a wind chime and a peculiar mix of surrealism and pop art which began with an idea for a Hamlet-esque Yorick pose and ended up as something else entirely.

Where did the artistic muse lead you at the weekend, I’d love to see your results…

Back by (not very) popular demand: DJ dc57 and the Wheels of Steal.

No, that’s not a typo, it’s a reference to the blatant artistic thievery I employ to create my unconventional mashup mixes; jamming together unsuspecting and unlikely tunes for my own twisted entertainment.

Well, I’ve been producing them for long enough now that I thought I should compile some of the best and make them freely available, as an unofficial and totally unauthorised release on my newly re-energised Bandcamp page.

I cannot possibly charge you anything for them – I can’t even allow you to “name your price” due to copyright issues – however, there is nothing to stop anyone from browsing the rest of my back catalogue and choosing to pay for a completely different track, while downloading the free remixes…

Anyway, the album is embedded below, should you wish to sample its delights, and quite a mixed bag of obtuse musical juxtapositions it is, too.

Both the somewhat blunt title and mildly disturbing cover art, (which, you’ll be unsurprised to learn, are Twin Peaks-related in-jokes) are from an album I created to store all the mixes in my phone’s music player, so it seemed only fitting that I use it for its real world release, so to speak.

Brace yourselves…

Cosmic Photo prompt.

This week on The Cosmic Photo Challenge we’re once again going freestyle, as I encourage you all to produce images which are just; Art for art’s sake.

Use your powers of creativity and imagination to provide us with pictures that are out of the ordinary, manufactured, morphed or manipulated to be more than a sum of their component parts.

So if there are any apps, filters or processes you fancied trying but have never got around to before, now’s your chance to throw caution to the wind and have some fun with your photos.

I look forward to seeing what you come up with on Monday, have a great weekend.

Midweek music/movie mashup.

Continuing my mission to squish together unlikely combinations of bands with stolen cinematic footage, may I present my latest mashup of musical madness.

This particular peculiar pairing features The Fun Lovin’Criminals and Leftfield, combined with some predictably blood-soaked clips from movie maestro Quentin Tarantino.

Here is the dc57 Dusted Mix of Korean Bodega, enjoy.

The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Good morning, or whatever time of day this post of The Cosmic Photo Challenge coincides with your Monday, I’m here to swap images illustrating the prompt; As the evenings start to lengthen.

I had to gamble on yesterday being photogenic enough to provide inspiration, since Saturday was grey and overcast, but fortunately it paid off.

I nipped down to the square and captured a few shots of deserted streets and the long bridge over the river Taw, just as the sun slipped below the horizon. A couple more sunsets taken during the week and (stretching the term “evening”, even by my flexible standards) a long exposure shot of star trails over the back garden.

“At the going down of the sun and in the morning, we will remember them”

Where did eventide find you over the weekend, would you like to show us..?
