”Alternativet Sangen” is my first video showing myself. It is made for a singing competition ending 18. december 2016. It was a quite cool process under great time pressure, that helped me doing it less ambitious or critical in order to gain a result. I just had to do my best even though I had pain in my throat.
The video is made with an iPhone 5 placed on a music stand. The extra sound I made with an iPod was bad. The soundtrack is edited in the digital audio workstation REAPER. A part of the digital soundtrack is made in the open source note application MuseScore, while the drum is recorded live in my homestudio. I finished the final editing of the video in iMovie.
In many ways a complicated process, difficult tecnical stuff that has taken a lot of time to learn, parallel to doing what I mostly love, creating music. But editing sound and making videos is an important part of todays digital world... and now also a part of my world....
