Vincent Moon - On Audio Recording for Film
02.25.12 Conversations on the road with Vincent Moon.
Was in the car with Karlo, Bert & Bea on our way to Zambales from Manila. :)
Shot with my LX5 and no extra audio recording equipment (obviously). Haha.
I was just curious about how he was able to shoot the audio for his Take Away Show videos with such clarity. So yeah, there.
I’ll be uploading more snippets of our conversations in the coming days/weeks. :D
In the meantime, you can watch some of my other videos here.
Vincent Moon: La Blogotheque’s Take Away Shows
I first encountered the Take Away Shows a few years ago when my friend Jane forwarded me the video of Phoenix’s. Not sure if it was 1901 or Lisztomania, but either way, I thought it was really fun and I wished I could find such bands randomly performing on the streets of Manila too. :P
I also love the rawness of the film and how it was able to capture the emotion of the moment, without necessarily being too concerned about the pursuit of aesthetic perfection.
While bands like Phoenix, Bon Iver, The National, Sigur Ros or Arcade Fire won’t have pop-up gigs here anytime soon, Vincent Moon, the filmmaker behind these Take Away Shows will be in the Philippines for 3 weeks to film, explore and discover the Philippine music scene/culture, all genres of it, from indigenous music to contemporary gig music.
On Feb. 23, Vincent will be holding a screening at Big Bad Wolf in Taguig City, Philippines.
He will be showcasing mostly new works, “shot from Brazil to Indonesia, from Colombia to Singapore, from an old ritual to a new one, from traditional untouched music to new experiments in local folklores”.
