‘Ice Cream Girl’

The Lloyd Cole fan page on Facebook suggested we – the fans – film a cover and post it. So I did.

Recorded live in Ableton Live using ADK large-diaphragm condenser mic, and filmed using my Fuji camera in ‘movie’ mode. It was done in one take, I suppose I could have got a perfect take if i had spent all morning on it, but I wasn’t that bothered.


New career as movie director?

It seems I might have a new hobby.

A couple of weeks ago I ‘accidentally’ made a music promo for the band The Saving Grace, and now it seems they’d like me to make another.

I jokingly made a suggestion – when I first recorded demo’s for them a month or so ago – that we could shoot a ‘one-take’ video in The Quarry (Shrewsbury’s riverside park) for a budget of pretty much nothing, using my 8megapixel Fuji camera (which has a basic movie function). And now it seems that this may happen.

I don’t know which song they want to do or anything like that, but it should be interesting, mostly because for editing software I will be using Ableton Live (which is actually music software) and Windows Movie Maker (which is rather basic, to say the least).
