Me and the boys (and gal) made a music video
      #1004970 - 23/08/12 08:23 AM
Hi,

I'm often on the SOS forums seeking advice about my guitars, Korean electricity dangers, and recording techniques.

My international band of ex-pats living in South Korea have managed to release an EP and we even made a promo video. The video was made by some keen amateurs here in Korea using the video function on DSLR cameras. We think it turned out great. It really captures the spirit of an ex-pat hangout bar in South Korea.

The video is here:
http://the-primary.com/video/

The EP can be streamed or downloaded (free) in proper quality here:
http://the-primary.com/audio/

I'd love to hear what you guys think of the tunes, recording, and the video. All criticism is welcome.

Thanks for taking the time to listen and/or watch.

Tony.

Good work on the video. Nice editing. If the cameras had video limitations, the results of that suited the video.

You were showing a cellist when there was no audible cello?

I heard the cello through basic nearfields but I can imagine it might not come across too well on small speakers or dodgy buds.

Absolutely excellent. Full of character, the video and the music. Great recording in the sense that the song came across well (you need more chords) and the instruments blended into cohesive whole until they were individually highlighted by the mix and the attentions of the camera. Great drum sound.

Music plays to everyone's strengths so everything sounds confident, communication seems natural.

There's far too much smiling, looks like the snowman was in town (not really).

Mucho enjoyable. Looks like a good pub.


P.S. This might be better in the Production forum where it'll show up on the front page rather than the Moaning and Obscenity forum where it's (quite rightly) hidden in a cupboard.

My interface must have a cello filter - I can't hear it through my HD650's.

Can you find out who makes it and post a link - I'll see if they do a version for banjo.

Thanks very much for watching and commenting! I'm really surprised you couldn't hear the cello, that's the first time I've seen that. Comment. As for the banjo, well I know it's not to everyone's taste.

Thanks again.

Aagh, no. Flippant general anti-banjo remark as a result of having spent 6 hours sat beside a very good but relentless banjo player at a session the other day.

There's nothing at all wrong with the banjo (that's our little secret, ok?)

Yes, they can be relentless. A friend of mine is an excellent banjo player - traditional jazz style. He seems to like me joining his gigs sometimes on piano. But there's little point in adding anything except a bass line - he has no concept of "laying off", and plays exactly the same whether I'm there or not!

Nice job!

I like the honesty of this - both the video and audio. A couple of vocal bits where the tuning is not 100%, but in this style of music that's no big deal.

And yes, I can I hear the cello - even on these crappy PC speakers.

At one time I would have curled in horror at the thought of banjo, but now I think they can really add something special - and this one does.

Hope it does well for you, man!

Thanks to everyone who watched and commented, we really appreciate the feedback!

Now to find someone who will pluck us from obscurity, give us a record deal, and make us ruch and famous enough to ride motorcycles inside hotels.... Any takers?

Hi Adrian, the video is hosted on Vimeo and there seems to have been a problem playing the video a few hours ago. However, I just checked it on my computer and phone and everything seems to be running fine.

It is also hosted on Youtube: http://youtu.be/96lHstUffIc

Thanks again for watching,

Tony
