Drum recording with the MV1

So here’s a video of me explaining how we recorded the drums for the new music video from Lo-Fi “Keep On Smiling"

We were recording the music along with the video footage on location and I must say that it was a really interesting experience. In the past I’ve only done the standard way of recording for a music video…. doing the music in the studio and then doing the filming on location.


(Also see: Piano recording video)

It was great to be able to write arrange and record the sound in the environment that we’d be filming in. Sure there was more pressure on us that we only had one shot and it was sweltering hot or windy or whatnot to make things difficult, but it was easy to “get into the zone” for recording that piece.


If you haven’t tried this kind of recording before I really recommend it.

It was fun and also inspiring when we wrote the music. Sure… you won’t be able to do more than 2-3 takes since it’s so hot.. or the tide would rise up into the kick drum… but I think we were able to record some interesting stuff.


Hopefully we’ll get some more interesting material released soon!

Happy New Year!

Another wonderful start of the year.

Enjoying some great weather and a very quiet retreat away from the city madness….!

Was off the grid for most of the winter vacation and recharging for the New Year.


Last year we had the privilege to record some great footage in Iheya Island Okinawa for the new Lo-Fi music video. If you haven’t seen it yet here’s the direct link:
