Go get it on itunes and amazon!
The clip is defined by 3 elements.
- One videofile, shot between 2 and 6 pm.
- The speed of playback of this file, which is synchronised manually to the music.
- About 50 different masks that define where the underlayed movie is going to appear on the screen. This makes it possible to have multiple light situations at the same moment.
So basically, the sunlight caught from the building is the "natural" palette for the entire colors of the clip.
I always liked bonsai trees, and I was curious to try the approach I used for "Music from a Tree" on a smaller scale, so I bought a bonsai and recorded this little experimental piece.
To determine the key I used the lowest note I could play and recorded the rest around it.
Besides playing the leaves, I used bows of different sizes, a piano hammer and a paint brush.
As far as microphones I used my Røde NT6, a customized stethoscope and tiny MEAS piezo transducers.
I played all the sounds and rhythms only with the bonsai, I didn't use any synthesizer or samplers to create or modify the sounds. I hope you'll like it.
