Have you ever met your Doppelganger?

Images and Meaning Sec 01 went searching and found their doppelgangers. Each student created a series of three portraits that interpreted the concept of the Doppelganger. See individual selections below. Advanced blending and Photoshop compositing techniques were used to develop each series.

Alums on Orlando Weekly cover

This week’s issue of the Orlando Weekly has a cover story on the local indie music scene.  The cover features a collage in which you’ll find pictures of David Plakon (DIGA Sound 2009, with his band Saskatchewan) and Nathan Chase (DIGA Art 2001, with his band The Pauses).  Inside the issue, you can read a nice feature about Saskatchewan or learn more about the Orange You Glad music festival where both bands played. Congrats to Nathan and David and all the local talent featured at Orange You Glad last weekend!

OST by Daniel Capo

Daniel Capo (Piano Performance 2011) is another good example of how students can benefit from Digital Arts courses even when they are not a major.  While at Stetson, Daniel took DIGA 461 as an elective and has continued to develop his electronic music skills after graduation.  Late last year, he release a chiptunes album called O.S.T. – Original Soundtrack and was honored by Square Enix Music Online with a nomination for best chiptune album of the year. Daniel is currently pursuing an MFA in Electronic Music and Recording Techniques at Mills College.  You can get his album on iTunes or Amazon or click the album cover below to visit his BandCamp site.

Three Or Four Words by Parker Chapman

Parker Chapman (Chemistry 2009) may not have majored in Digital Arts, but he definitely enjoyed taking electives in the program, like DIGA 101 and 361.  Parker was able to develop his skills and pursue his passion for making music in the recording studio.  That work has continued since graduating and resulted in a EP called, Three or Four Words.  The 6-tracks are for sale as a digital download with all proceeds going to Smile Train.  Parker is currently applying to med schools and continues to record whenever he finds the time.  Click on the album art below to preview or buy the album.
