Along came a Tango

When I decided to put together this piece had to deal with 4 different media, in different formats, sizes and codex. So I began to strip audio from the live video recording, remastering it and adding a layer of voice overs. These were created from text to speech,  formatted, changed in pitch  and amplified to produce an echo-like sound in the background.

From then on I edited the video and mixed it with the tango dance (that was performed to a different music and muted) Since the dance was more like a classical ballet, rather than tango I liked the effect that would be created by pairing it to a modern and mournful tango. All that said, added scenery and stills from those years mentioned in the lyrics and the concept became a reality.

Personally, enjoyed the discovery and melding of styles and consider it to be an exceptional piece of history, folklore and nostalgia all wrapped in a beautiful package.
