PAR AVIAN was a private mixtape collective that I ran with a group of 50 friends from 2004 until 2014. It was established as a music sharing game, brought on thanks to mp3 players and the introduction of ipods and lasted through the universal acceptance of itunes and digital streaming services.
I have a page here dedicated to the project but the wealth of mixtapes is greatly larger than my server’s drive space. I needed to find another solution. Mixtape is a good solution for this. All of the files can now be found in its home there. I’m happy to be able to share this beyond the original group. It was an important transitional time in how we enjoyed and enjoined with music.
