Today, work on the music video for the upcoming "The Crack-Up" single.

Experiments with multiple cameras, here we've got a nice row of Canon Eos 550D.

Recording "Nowhere Near" : Atari Forever

Since I'm finalizing this project, let's redo this old post.

"Nowhere Near" will be featured on the Crack-Up EP. It's Eighties-style, synthpop, bouncy thing. Lots of Moog.
Last thing I wanted to do is a 16bit computer outro. Now, let me state that I am NOT into chiptune music. BUT the song itself had a little retro vibe to it, with somewhat nostalgic lyrics, so it felt right to end it up with a little Atari ST tune.

Not being crazy enough to bring back my old Atari (if it would work anyway), I've used the next best thing, that is, the excellent ymVST emulation (HERE).

The following excerpt from "Nowhere Near" is the "Atari ST" arrangement submix.

All right, I'm still fidgeting about...
But I'll close the lid on the new projects before leaving on vacation at the end of July, no matter what!

First we've got "The Crack-Up" : electropop EP, 5 or 6 songs (depending on my ability to solve mixing issues on "Last Night I Was a Ghost").
I'll be shooting some video for the title song this month.

Then, "Hollow Lands", the folk-blues albumette starring Miss Roxanne, Adcbicycle, Jérôme Guienne and Roshi.
For this one, we'll also be shooting a B&W music video, that is, on the closing song "Dark Mind".
