A Frog's Time In Pond Life
For this week's Creative Code Challenge by @sableraph : Pond Life, Frogs and Island were representing the Life of Pond in " AFrogsTimeinPondLife".
This week's languages are Hydra, LivecodeYoutubing & SonicPi. Frog Footage from The Denver Zoo and a remixed sample usage of the WaterMelon Riddim were also used in this piece.
Entering Pond Life
Using LiveCodingYoutube, I was able to give motion and timing to the Frog Footage.
Hydra was used to add effects and bring different vantage points of the Frogs. Aided with oilpaint and night filters.
For the Audio, I remixed the WaterMelon Riddim as it is a soca beat, a Caribbean-based genre. The remixed instrumental is tied to the visuals of the Frogs in the Pond, to bring a different dimension to what we consider to be "Pond Life"
Ponds and Water Aqua-Based Towns The Frogs are pond-trotters Floating on the lilypads Boating on the rounds Croaking sounds Resonating and quickly adds Quickly adds as the lilypads rotate As the currents institagate In the pond-life, with these Aqua-Based Towns As the Frogs inhabit near the Water
