I'm working on the videos for Hadewych and Machinist. They both performed last Saturday in Den Bosch in an old school next to the city's museum. As always the performances were haunting and beautiful!
I was there to film, hoping to create a document of the evening, but unfortunately not everything went as planned. Because of the very minimal amount of time I had to prepare and change positions during the change-over from one act to the next, I had barely time to set audiolevels and make sure everything was ready to go. The audio was not the best I've recorded. Also, someone accidentally (?) switched off one of the camera's during Hadewych's performance, so I unfortunately only have the handheld images.
Here is a screencap from both performances:
I was lucky enough that Machinist had his own recording device with him, with which he captured the audio for his performance, so I'll be able to mix that in with the ambient recording. Hadewych however was not so lucky, so I have only the low-quality on cam mic recording, which bums me out. I don't know what to do yet, but I'll discuss it with Peter J. Nijland to see what he wants to do with the footage.
I'll be working on the edits for the videos tonite in hopes of finishing them before Christmas.
Happy holidays everyone!
