I was messing around with visualizing the collaboration I did with Spencer’s character, Donnie Rawley, and I really liked the calm, striking visual effect I was able to get with these filters on Movie Maker. I think it fits perfectly well with the “zen” feel of the music. The water drops in particular looks so damn cool; almost like a moving sketch.
I’ve wanted to do more with my Blackbird self trio since I recorded it and people seemed to take a liking to it. I decided I would finally record the guitar accompaniment and set it to simple visuals. I found an awesomely simple black and white, sketched-look video of a flying bird and I took it apart to guide the music. It’s simple but I love the peace and calm of it all. I also considered making a video for the collaboration audio I did last week with Spencer’s Zen guitar piece. It would have been cool to see that grow in three different places but I thought my Blackbird recording gave me a bit more to work with. I had a bit of trouble aligning to timing up for some reason, and it definitely shows with the guitar in the beginning, but it picks up.
