As Chef Alaric leads, the other chefs follow. Hot on the heels of our first ever music video release last month, I can now reveal our second, this time for the beautifully acoustic folk outfit Arlet (yes that’s right, the lovely people behind the soundtrack to The Last Bookshop). Recorded and filmed on an actual Thames barge called the Volharding just along from Tower Bridge, if you listen carefully you can hear the genuine creaks of the wooden beams and the splash of the river under the strum of guitar and blow of horn. Big thanks to Al for his amazing grading and Jan Grimshaw for helping out on the day, as well as the lovely people at the Volharding for keeping the tea supply constant! So without further ado, I present Morning After by the wonderful, the only, Arlet!
April saw The Bakery making our first music video. It was for Canterbury based psychedelic rock band, Syd Arthur. They approached us because they knew we had some cameras and are shit at saying “no” to things. It was a great deal of fun making the video with the guys, especially because Dan was wearing his lucky new jacket. Without that, we would have ended up with a video like this. The track, Edge of the Earth, is off their new album On An On. The video got its online premiere on the Prog Rock music magazine’s blog here: http://www.progrockmag.com/news/prog-premiere-syd-arthur-reveal-new-video/ The incredible light box was kindly lent to us by the very patient Roderic Wilson from bubblevision.co.uk. I say lent, he actually set it all up for us too. For those interested, the light box runs off a matrix of HEXMOD LED’s that are controlled by laptop running a program called Madrix. Inside Madrix, we ran a que-sequence which we had pre-programmed lighting textures to the precise timings of the music. All the lighting textures were made by us too. Many thanks to Chris from lucidillusions.co.uk for teaching me how to do all of this, at such short notice....
