Recording update

I did a second drum session with Seb on Saturday. We now have 8 songs recorded. Three of them are mixed. There are 2 songs that I am recording and I’d like to compose a few ones more. I still have to choose titles, the song are called for instance by the date they were composed. Most of them contain a bunch of acoustic instruments, with very few keyboards. There’s some bass and drums on all songs so far. I’m into slap back echo on vocals, 50’s-60’s vibe!

Take-away show(-like): Between These Walls

Here is the “Take-away Show” we shot earlier this month. We “stole” (or were inspired by?) the concept from lablogotheque.net, a french website. There are several principles, in order to make a video that is like an anti-high budget polished, 12-cameras, but still a little bit interesting. One of them is making only one sequence shot for the whole song. A second one is choosing an unexpected place to shoot and use it as it is, without moving/bringing stuff.

Mark Olexa was filming Seb and myself. We shot/played the song live in a bathroom. Seb used the toilets, the dustbin, the shower and a tambourine as percussion. The song I choosed to play is “Between These Walls”, which is my LP second track of part 1 of the album. It was a lot of fun making the video.

Mark edited it, worked on the grain, the tones, etc and here’s the result.
