Behind the scenes of remaking a track

With great audio comes great responsibility oops I mean a great video!! Couldn’t resist using a pun, but that not what this blog is about. 3 of Infinity decided to take one of their greatest songs on their album and re-record it in order for their music video to be taken to the next level. Now where did they go to re-record this awesome song? They chose to go with Daniel Blake Production which is one of the best places in town to record plus if you want to have a chill time and have fun recording he’s they guy to go to. As I arrived they were so amazed by the studio being in a little school house. As I was balancing my DSLR on my gimbal I saw them all jamming out ready to go, which I have to say it was totally epic!

They started with recording Andrews guitar play which blew me away so much part of the time I almost forgot to look at the camera screen. In between though you would hear Rylan play the piano playing Beethoven which I didn’t even know he could do that. As I get to know these guys im starting to know more and more that these guys don’t just love what they do they just have fun with it. Which is beautiful because the more you have fun the better the sound comes out.

Daniel Blake offered me a headset I order for me to hear the sound clearly while I video them. The situation was when I did I had a habit of almost tripping on the headphones, which was a hazard so I ended up taking them off to save the trouble. Of course the drumming blew my ears out, but it was a risk I was willing to take. Rylan by the way if your reading this your an wheezing drummer. Just to let everyone know Rylan is the energetic one that keeps the band on their toes. He may be a bit animated, but he also hours up the band.

We then went to Eli where Daniel recorded his bass, which made want to get down and get funky. Sadly I couldn't because will I was on the videoing him, I mean can you imagine the camera shaking if you do then that's probably me moving to the beat! Rylan is more of the chill band member that keeps the band mellow when ever they get to hyped up.

Lastly we went to Andrew recording his vocals for the song which before I discuss what happen I have something to say about him. Andrew Swauger may be 19, but he takes his music very seriously. He's the lead singer but also the rock that keeps the band in line which is quite rare for done musicians at a very young age. He knew exactly what he wanted and how the song should sound like before recording. The entire take only took a few moments because each recording was dead on.

This band may be a young group, but they know how to with together and they've only been playing together for a year. Yeah that small amount of time and they already skiing like they've been playing for years. It was so awesome videoing this group and hilarious too. We plan on shooting the video on February 9th in the morning which in so ready to video.

Stay tune
