After we recorded everything except some vocal tracks in the rehearsal room by ourself we had the mix and master done by Reinhard Gross from Hicktown Records. We worked with him before for the score of Kanu belong Keram and it was a great cooperation for the EP 1Hz. After working on the mix we had everything running over the amazing STUDER for an analog tape master. So we added some ‘analog warmth’ to the digital mix. Thanks again to Reini and Hicktown Records!
Lets look behind the scene of the promo video shooting and the photo shooting of the cover art for the EP 1Hz. We set up our live-set in an industrial building where our rehearsal room is located. On the first weekend we staged the live-set to shoot one photo for each track of the EP 1Hz. We needed one picture for KANU and one for SAGO to use for the vinyl.
The following weekend we staged this setting again to shoot the promotion videos for the EP. We used two cameras to shoot the front and the back view in the same time. After we were done with the overall shots we shoot each other for the close up scenes. Like always everything was done D.I.Y. with a helping hand from Domi.
We were doing the score for the short documentary Kanu belong Keram by Daniel von Rüdiger. It was winning besides other prices BEST SCORE at the Hollywood International Independent Documentary AWARDS.
Kanu belong Keram is a document of the building of a canoe in the remote village Kambot. It is located at the jungle river Keram, which is a side stream of the great jungle river Sepik in Papua New Guinea. The building of a canoe can be seen as an example of the importance and greatness of community work. Just the strength of many people can achieve something so big and heavy. The indigene population is highly adapted to their environment. The strength of their bodies, the synchronization as a group and practical know how is compensating the lack of technical equipment. The hard work is manifested in their healthy physical appearance. The documentary is without comment but with statements of the appearing villagers. Their English skills is besides their ‘Western’ cloth an example of outside influence which reached even these very remote areas of our planet.
The audio and video footage of the documentary is used in our track KANU.
