Among the many scenes you will recognize Lilies, Irises, Hydrangea, Purple Cone-flowers, Lavender Wisteria, Smoke Tree and other specimens of colorful trees. Towards the end, the filming had to be cut short due to impending lightning and heavy rain. All along I was carrying a large (golf) umbrella to protect the cameras and myself of heavy raindrops that were beginning to hit us.
Shots taken around our garden while a storm was fast approaching. Some sequences were hand-held, others taken on the run 🙂 ♥
The power of mother nature was evident!
Enjoy the show,

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.
Ballet-like dance to a modern tango. Superbly interpreted and performed by Gisela Natoli and Gustavo Rosas.
Scenery from Montevideo, Uruguay and Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Music: Gotan Project (live) remix and audio voice-over overlays by Leo Bar.
