Start Date: Nobody really knows

End Date: 21st September 2020

The basis of this video was a song that was recorded approximately 15 years ago by a group of musicians under the name of Hemisfar. However, it was not given a physical release until 2017 on the Smallfunk label from Stockholm.

The original 15 year old track can be heard here and if anybody is intrigued enough to buy the cd, Smallfunk would certainly be happy to fulfill the order.

To produce the video, we had to alter the music a little and record a few extra parts for it. Not to make it better, as the original is anyway totally beautiful. But its pace was a bit languid for the story we needed to tell. That sounds simple enough, but after rehearsing and recording, we ended up with approximately 90 different stems, and what started off as a track just under 5 minutes long ended up as over 15 minutes.

Needless to say, copious amounts of (sometimes bad-tempered) time were spent editing it! Kudos to the team at Blackbird Music for being so good humoured about it.

The mix is not due to take place until the 2nd week of February 2020, which we will post here. In the meantime, here are a few photos from the rehearsals and recording sessions.

Below is a snippet of the animation, actually theorised and designed by the female singer of the song.
