Chapeau Klez' first selfmade video production of Hava Nagila

November 29, 2012 at 2:40 PM

Yesterday I finished a Music Video for my Violin Klezmer Duo, Chapeau Klez. It is the first time me cutting a music video and to be honest the synchronisation was the hardest part and isn't perfect. But it takes lots of time, wich I don't have always. So I want to share my work here to get some opinions on what is good and what could be done better.
I recorded the videos with a canon 600D (wich is an awesome toy!). The audio was played in a hannover church, wich opened spontaneously just for us to record for 15 minutes and recorded with an Zoom h2. We were lucky to get a decent take in that short time. The Audio is uncut due to the lack of similar takes in the same environment.
Hava Nagila! Lets be happy!

That's very well done. Love the melancholy of this version of Hava nagila.
Simon, do you play the melody or the accompaniment at the start?

wow thanks! I play the melody in this one and Andreas the accompaniment. We have just a few songs where we change, he is such an professional rhythm player and good collegue :) His part is technically very hard most of the time. When I have to play the chords, I really have to practice those, not to speak about memorization.
