1. I turned my living room (in Harlem, NYC) into a makeshift film and recording studio. The black background is a large sheet of velvet which I hung on the wall. I ended up having to gather every single lamp in the house in order to get enough light! The biggest problem I encountered: too much street noise during the day (not good for recording sound) and not enough light late at night when it was nice and quiet (not good for filming). So what I ended up doing was recording the sound separately and filmed as I played back. Syncing the two was not too bad. But it was a little tricky having my hands play exactly like I had when I recorded the sound (I never play exactly the same way).

    I filmed with my Lumix GF1 and recorded the sound with two Rode NT55s with omnidirectional caps. I used a homemade Jecklin Disk and the Sony PCM-D50 field recorder with phantom power. The guitar is made by Manuel Contreras II.
