The formation of our masterpiece began with putting together the music track, which was created on both sides of the planet: Rie in Japan and yours truly in Andalusia, PA. Once that was done, mixing both her piano and singing with my vocals and bass playing, we made the visuals.
The video footage of my duet partner took place at her friend’s music studio, which, as you’ll see in the following clip, is a magnificent space filled with beautiful instruments. She also made a clip at her home across Tokyo Bay in the Chiba prefecture.
I absconded a photograph posted on her Twitter account, of the outstanding studio in which she recorded one of her parts for our project. The picture shows Rie while holding up a violone, as seen below:
I told her I would love to play that fiddle. She commented it is a “huge” fiddle, indeed. Rie has such a wonderful sense of humor.
My parts were recorded at my home studio in the suburbs of Philadelphia. It was a lot of fun mixing everything together to form our first video production. We’ve been collaborating with song recordings for well over a year now, and have grown considerably with our musical-cover tunes.
So, without further ado, allow me to present our first endeavor in the world of music videos. I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I do.
Any comments, observations or constructive criticism would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for your continued support.
