Night Music: "Dusty"

This is something I have been thinking about doing for quite some time. Until now, I haven’t had a way of creating it.

I drive around a lot, especially at night, always with a favorite CD on the car stereo. I often don’t have a particular destination in mind and usually I try and get out into the country to do it.

A few weeks ago, I was driving back from my friends’ gig out of town and was listening to Fred Eaglesmith‘s CD “Dusty“. The title song, “Dusty” is such a beautiful and haunting song and it hit me that the tune was perfect for this video project. I turned on my camera and restarted the song.

When I got back, I found the sound was awful but the essence of what I wanted was there. I transferred the song directly from the CD to the video’s audio track, added the titles, fiddled with the sync a bit and that was it.

I love it, myself. So far it has gotten some nice responses from friends and I’d like to know what other people think.

Fred’s latest CD is “Milly’s Cafe“. This recording narrowly missed being lost in a fire which destroyed Fred’s studio. Luckily Fred had sent the masters out to be copied just hours before the fire broke out. Unfortunately, Fred lost all his previous recordings, most of his instruments and a lot more.
